1986 Van Halen Tour Shirt

Post by RyanB » Fri Oct 26, 2012 10:34 pm

Looks dead stock. Either that or purchased and left on a hanger for years. I was fearful because I've never seen the tag before but there's another shirt on here with this tag and a 1980's copyright from a reputable seller.

There's a handful of them on ebay for everywhere from 60 to 150 buy it now. Looking at completed auctions some have gone for fairly cheap. I'm going to list it on here and wait for the right buyer to come along.

I've had that exact same tee before and still have the original photos. As you can see, mine was a Screen Stars. That's not to say yours isn't legit, because I've also seen the label on yours before on tees that otherwise seemed period correct. Is yours poly/cotton? This particular VH design has been reproduced over the years, though, so hard to say if it's from the actual '86 tour or a later repro? I've also seen the front image on a gray tee with a 90's or early 00's era (Anvil?) tag.

For what it's worth, mine sold at auction on Ebay for somewhere around $30, you could probably get more as a BIN (especially since yours is in better shape).

Yes it's 50/50.

I found one listed on here already and it's printed on a different brand called Pacer. The ones on ebay mostly have the same label as mine or Screen Stars.

We see the MY SHIRT brand all of the time on late 80s promo shirts. Lots of cigarette shirts (mostly the 1988 Camel 75th b-day).
