Values?

Post by CarlaS » Mon Jul 06, 2015 10:41 pm

I was given a big stack of concert t-shirts. My plan was to cut them up and make a tshirt quilt but my husband said I should check their values before I go slicing and dicing. Lots of Rolling Stones tshirts in the pile. Looks like they're all from the 80's and 90's. Seeking values....here's one of the shirts. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I'd estimate the Starship shirt at $75, at least as a minimum starting bid. Of course, it's all about finding the right buyer, which can take some time.

While a t-shirt quilt would be cool, I'd do it with more recent reproduction shirts, not vintage shirts like this. That would be considered blasphemy in some circles lol. Not to mention the financial consideration. Collectors want old shirts to wear, not as quilts. But then they're your shirts, you can do as you wish (but please spare this one...please)

LOL....thank you Fifty Fifty Man....perhaps you're right. I probably would have wavered when my scissors got close to the Freddy Mercury/Queen t-shirt as well. Just to mention a few..... I have Van Halen, AC/DC, Stones, Eric Clapton and Tommy Bolin (although I don't remember him).

Here's a couple of pictures....it's a pretty good size pile of tshirts that was given to me. There's still some more that are not in the photo
