Harley 3D Emblem Tees

Post by CRAZYBUBBA » Wed Apr 21, 2010 5:29 pm

The first on is really cool. It's a paper thin harley tee from Kona Hawaii but the condition (~20 small holes+ a cigarette burn) leaves something to be desired. Truth be told, I like the back better than the front. It's an L.

The second one is a pretty common smith and wesson 3D emblem tee. It's cotton, XL has some fading but no holes.

Nice. The value of harley emblem tees has always confuses me. I think sometimes the back is key - Hawaii might be rare.

Both of these Harley tees are pretty sweet!

Holes and fading are good in my book! The more the tee looks like it's seen some action and the owner loved it enough to wear it all the time makes it that much more appealing to me. The only thing I'm not too keen on in terms of condition are certain types of stains that are almost impossible to remove unless you happen to own a high pressure cleaning gun like the kind used in a screen printing shop.

I'd say both tees are worth somewhere in the $20-$50 range.

True, shirts with character tell a story and are generally more attractive (to me anyway), but I think 20+ holes might be pushing it. I was so excited to find this one that I literally ran out the door without really checking it over.

Thanks for the help.
