Metallica - Kill 'Em All

Post by ronan666 » Mon Jun 18, 2018 5:49 am

Hi All,
Wonder if you might be able to give a few pointers on a price for this one. I can date back to late 80’s early 90’s.
Definitely not as old as 1983! It’s not an official tee, or a concert tee. Its store bought and has no back print. I’ve never come across any
with a similar design or print before. It’s a screen print, European in origin. I’m based in Ireland and back in those times it was hard
to get any official tee’s other than at An actual gig!

Never seen. Hard to say on this one. it's a damn cool bootleg. Legit Kill em shirts are among Metallicas most valuable. And Metallica boots tend to have decent value too. Maybe a few hundred? Price it high with offers

I saw you posted this on ebay, your price is WAYYY to high tho. Someone may pay you a hundred or two but definitely not $1000+ ya know. I'm not trying to hate, just being real with you. (Also I understand you have "best offer" on but still you know what I mean.

Thanks for weighing in Gnarcotic, I have method in my madness, not expecting to reach that :-), I’m really just testing the water to find a value. I have no benchmark to compare it to. Bud needless to say if something decent came in I’d consider it. Interestingly enough an offer of €350 shot in within an hour of listing! I’ve found higher price listings get the attention rather than being lost in the 1000’s of low value ones. More than likely I will put this one to auction eventually.

I'd be jumping on that €350 in a heartbeat.

I sold something a few months ago that had no comparable sales prices.
Had it listed at auction and someone offered me $250+AUD for it (outside of eBay), which I thought was a more than fair offer. I just refused to sell it to him as the auction had already started and had multiple bids.
In the end the guy who made the offer didn't bid on it and it sold for less than half of his offer.

As far as bootlegs go. I don't think your one is that good of a print. The cool looking bootlegs can go for a fair bit but I reckon your market is probably aimed more towards collectors.

Anyway... TAKE THE MONEY.

I agree 100% with this person. Take the money. I collect vintage band tees (my point being I collect them but don't resell them) and as far as future value I don't really see this piece gaining any value. So as far as keeping it I wouldn't because like he said the graphics are very basic so honestly if you can get that much for it TAKE IT!!
