Hey Brah, Vintage Maniac Here

Post by VintageManiac » Fri Nov 18, 2011 6:15 pm

Hi All. I am the Maniac- the Vintage Maniac to be exact. I peruse all the thrift stores in LA. Just yesterday I scored an Op terry shirt with a killer surfer pipeline graphic and a pair of 80s Op swim trunks. Each one at a different store. Today, I scored a nice 80s Hang Ten polo shirt. The past couple weeks have rocked, an 83 Op t-shirt, some concert tees, etc. I could go on and on but that would NOT bore you.

OK, this past weekend I scored my first Blue Bar champion shirt (UGLY), two 70s Hang Ten shirts (DISTRESSED), a nice Hanes Fifty-Fifty CANADA shirt with killer CANADA and LEAVES graphic, a 70s Nike shirt (real nice), and a 90s GRAY label NIKE shirt and USA Adidas jacket but I handed those two away to some dude who really gets into the sports thing. I also scored a killer Yellow colored CRAZY SHIRTS with a great graphic and real thin 70s/80s t-shirt, but I foolishly gave it away to another vintage freak friend of mine before buying it. I am regretting not buying it.

So, like hey Brah, surf's up!!

I'd love to see that 70s Nike shirt. Share it in a "show and tell" thread.
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!

Hey CRAZYBUBBA,
I could not post it in the forums due to the file size, but I uploaded it into my SHOW Collection. I am pretty sure it is 70s based on my eBay searches, but it could be 80s- I am not the Nike expert. Check it out here:

Let me know what you think!

Cheers,
The Vintage Maniac

Oscar, you will find one. You just have to be patient. It took me a long time to find one. You can do it!
