90's (?) Nike T-Shirt

Post by tpeacock278 » Mon Dec 04, 2017 4:08 pm

I have an online vintage clothes shop, and have been hesitant to post this because I don't know how much it's worth. As far as age goes, I'm estimating that it's from the 90's. Someone told me that prior to the 90's Nike had a singe stitch hem, and this one has a double. It has a tag, but it's been worn and washed some much that you can't see anything on the tag aside from some faint blue lettering. It's a very soft, thin shirt. As far as condition goes, it has one pin hole in the back. It's certainly possible that it's not worth anything, but I can't find any information about it online-- just wanted to make sure of the value before selling for $10-$15.

Thank you,
Tyler

That's bizarre! Never seen it and don't think it's legit Nike. The caricature is questionable too...If I had it I would just hold on to it as a I'm not sure what to do with this item! The tag is blank?

Anyone else?

Hi Jimmy,

Thanks for the insight. Are bootleg Nike T Shirts common? The tag is blank, but I don't think it originally was. The entire shirt just looks/feels very worn. There aren't any stains or significant holes (one small one on the back), but it looks like its been washed and worn A LOT. The tag still has some faint blue lettering, and what seems to be the top of a swoosh, but it's mostly very thin and translucent.

I could be totally wrong! Definitely lots of Nike bootlegs floating around - I have no doubt it's vintage. Can I see the Tag?

doesn't ring any bells, definitely not early 90s. Have you been able to find an example of a Nike tag that could be?
