STUMPED ON THIS GUNS N ROSES "WAS HERE " SHIRT

Postby metal on Fri Dec 19, 2014 9:25 pm

HELLO ALL I AM NEW HERE , I HAVE BEEN SELLING T SHIRTS FOR THE PAST YEAR OR SO , AND I JUST BOUGHT A NICE COLLECTION OF 1980S ROCK SHIRTS THOE ORIGINAL OWNER HAS HAD THEM PACKED AWAY AT HIS MOTHES HOUSE FOR OVER THE LAST 20+ YEARS .
SO I WILL BE POSTING ASKING QUESTIONS ON SOME OF THE SHIRTS HERE AND THERE .
HOWEVER THE ONE THAT HAS ME STUMPED IS THIS GnR SHIRT . the tag is just wrong looking and there is no copywright C in front on the guns n roses 1987 .
is this a fake or bootleg t shirt ?

if it is a bootleg , is there still value in vintage bootleg t shirts ?

thanks much
Randy

Welcome.

I say legit. Copyright or absence of once isn't as reliable as the quality of the print. Because even the bootleggers would add a copyright. You can see an example of a fake version of this shirt here:

There's also lots of random generic tags from back in the day floating around.

They don't get the colors correct.

thank you very much jimmy . i was so close to using this as a work shirt . the original owner said he never bought shirts from an outside vendor so i guess he was truthful
