Vintage Slayer 1985 Hell Awaits Tour T Shirt authenticity?

Post by JackSkull » Sat Feb 21, 2015 1:51 pm

Hello,

I have a question regarding the authenticity and value of this Slayer 1985 Hell Awaits tour shirt? I purchased it many years ago at a thrift shop. I'm aware of other brands, like Screen Stars printing this tour shirt as well, but I am not too familiar with what appears to be a 'Sportswear' tag, from what I can make out? I've seen similar 80's sportswears tags from that era, but this one has an RP on the tags corner? I'd appreciate any inputs you guys may have regarding it.

Thank you,

J

looks legit. Sportswear is one of the brands that have tons of design incarnations. look at the selection in the comments section here:

value - one just auctioned for 200 and change. but could get more if youre patient with a BIN listing.

Thanks, Jimmy. I thought so, but wasn't too sure. Would this one be considered one of the rarer ones by collectors? Not too sure, but I think I could get more for it if I wait on it.

Thanks,

Theres quite a few available and sold on ebay so wouldnt say rare...but there's value there...but lots of overpriced BINs on eBay too.
