Andy Capp/Helsinki Cup, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sinatra

Post by mrs_stout » Tue Jan 22, 2013 9:32 pm

Experts, please weigh in on pricing for the tees below. I'm especially interested in the RHCP one, which has a Spanish label and I'm wondering if it's a repro or real. I have to say, the print is quality.

1986, no label, definitely vintage

Sometimes soccer shirts can be pricy, and I think that Andy Cappcan he add to the price. But I think it should start at least at $25+. The chili peppers short looks legit, so it soul go for at least $30 to $75 or more. The frank shirt is nice and should go for at least $35 or more. I am rhinking that the prices could go up or down. Perhaps someone could chime in, the chili peppers shirt could go for more possibly.

The RHCP is a tough call. While the graphic and (c) information look legit, I would think a shirt listed as "licensed to Giant" would have a Giant tag, like so:

(although more than likely would have been made in the US with an earlier Giant tag).

Another explanation (you said Spanish tag, right), it could be a Euro shirt (where Giant could have some licensing agreement extension with this JPB brand). Hard to say. Still vintage, just possibly not "authentic" licensed merch.

I think its licensed. These giant and Brockum weren't tee manufacturers. I know brockum used fruit of the loom and had their tags sewn in.

Thanks, all. Soooo - I'm looking at a vintage RHCP tee shirt? Sweet! Don't know if I want to sell it because I like the band.

If I could squeeze myself into that Andy Capp without looking like cased sausage, I'd keep that one. :lol:
