70s-80s NOS Lucasfilm 3/4 Sleeve Tee

Post by TimeForMemories » Sat Aug 13, 2016 2:46 pm

Here's another cool one I picked up yesterday! Can anyone help on value? To me the tag appears to be the 70s tag from Russell Athletic, but maybe it's 80s. Tagged large. Pit to pit is 18.5" and sleeves are 15". Not sure if it was a long t-shirt or some type of nightwear because it measures 33" long. Has a little minor pilling and one small mis-sewn spot on the front (not a repair).

Cool - as I posted about these tees are in surprisingly low demand. Star Wars and then even Lucasfilm is just that more removed from Star Wars. I'll ping SF415 maybe he can chime in or wants to buy it.

Thanks, Jimmy. Do you think it was a t-shirt and just long cuz it's a "large", or do you think it was a nightshirt? Were t-shirts made with the bottom like that?

It's a basic baseball raglan style t shirt, not a sleep shirt.

Great find.

I don't remember ever seeing this (logo) variation, I believe it is one of the earlier examples. Definitely early 1980s. I'd say it'll fetch between $45-$65 in my opinion though I have never see this particular one on the open market. Like Jimmy stated, it is but isn't Star Wars necessarily but they were available all throughout the production of ESB/ROTJ so certain collectors seek them, like me :)

Let me know if you list it on eBay, I'd be interested in adding this to my collection.

Best,

Steve

Great! Thanks for the additional info, Steve! I think I will auction it on eBay (probably later this week) since it's a more rare logo version, and see what happens. Do you want me to just post a link to it in here or send you an email or something?

I can just keep an eye out for it. Thanks for the heads up that you'll be auctioning it off. It's a cool shirt, I hope it does well.

Best,

Thanks again for the info everyone! You all rock!

I scheduled it to start this Thursday night and run as a 10 day auction. My username on there is the same as here - TimeForMemories.

May the force be with you if you bid on it, Steve! :D

Just an update - this one sold today for $60 in my Etsy shop after about a month. I did list it on eBay first with a starting bid of $60, but it ended without any bids so I put it for $60 in my Etsy shop and here on Defunkd right after that. Thanks again for the help and info on it!
