Violent Femmes 1983 concert tee

Post by wickedgoodshirts » Thu Jun 01, 2017 12:09 pm

My aunt bought this at a Violent Femmes show in 1983. I've seen the design knocked off a lot (like at Hot Topic) but this one is for real show merch. It's kinda distressed and the fabric has thinned but it doesn't have any holes or major damage. I did a pretty exhaustive search online and can't find any exactly like this one, except repros. Just wondering how much an authentic vintage version might be worth and if it's worth listing for sale.

I cant track down any vintage ones like yours in the sold listings on ebay but VF seem to max out at about 75 bux. And if this is heavily reproduced - that can kill the value. One of the probklems with 1 color prints.
