A Catalina t-shirt with a similar design sold for $400+ a while back... http://www.defunkd.com/2009/10/05/vinta ... et-alaska/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

wow, that's pretty cool!

Javi, I owe you lunch for tipping me off to the Primo Hawaiian Beer collector world- I flipped a shirt for 40x what I paid for it recently!

Nice....! Catalina stuff rules, "styled for the stars of Hollywood"...I think that's what the slogan was.

This one's a winner but I wonder what affect the condition will have on the final price. Rayon can be difficult.

What confuses me is why Jantzen stuff from the same era doesn't sell as well.
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!
