Does Size Matter

Post by maxvintage » Mon Apr 18, 2011 11:23 pm

I just acquired a mint condition Rolling Stones Steel Wheels tour shirt. I've seen it on ebay at around $120. My question is concerning the size. I read on here that a Screen Stars XXXL is rare and that happens to be what the shirt is. Does that increase the value or is size pretty much irrelevant? Thanks!

Definitely that Screen Stars size is more rare - what are the measurements and which shirt is it? I've found SS XXX's have awkward measurements - what are they? You might luck-out and get matched with someone who has been waiting for Steel Wheels tee in an actual XL size but typically people in that size have given up on world of true vintage t-shirts. It might even hurt the value of the tee :(

It's impossible to find a vintage tee in that size. The combination of print/size should make it very valuable to an appropriately sized customer.
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!

Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate it. Hopefully it doesn't hurt the value of the shirt. :)

Jimmy- the measurements are 24" pit to pit and from back collar to hem is 30"

I figured a few photos wouldn't hurt in assessing the value.

Thanks again for the help, it's much appreciated.

Cool - so that's a modern day XL. Nice design. I would list it and pay for the subheading and write "extremely rare XL sized true vintage t-shirt" or something along those lines. You gotta to do something to separate it from the pack and get the attention of XLers who have given up on trying to find vintage in their size.
