Hey ItsKosher just a little heads up for ya'

I would have some real concerns about paying $500 for that tee. It looks like a recent reproduction. T-shirts were not cut like that in 1978 (tees from the 70's were usually cut very slim as I'm sure you're already aware) and typically not heavy-duty 100% cotton which this tee appears to be. Plus the seller makes no mention of it being the "real thing" from the 1978 New Years Eve concert.

In other words...it's not the real thing. Buyer beware.

Hmmm.... Perhaps you are correct. But the tag is right for the year and honestly I've never seen a repro of this shirt. BUT....I will not be paying anywhere near $500 for it - I'll just keep waiting until I can pick one up for say a tenth of that.

Shalom!

My bad.

I didn't see the photo with the tag. You're right it is the appropriate age.

Hmmmm....now I'm not sure either way. Tough call.
