70s-80s Elvis with Guitar Graphic Shirt

Post by TimeForMemories » Tue Nov 03, 2015 12:04 pm

Any help on value for this one? From late 70s to early 80s. Decent vintage condition with some small stains on front (shown in pic) and a couple more pea-sized on back plus one pea-sized hole on back. Blank back. Pit to pit is 17". Length is 23".

Cool one. Think it's safe to say 70s. Man, the King's tees are undervalued. Seems like only his early, early ones fetch a lot. Plus, it's quite small. Put it $100 with offers?

Crazy Bubba also collects them - I'll email him.

I can see a fair bit of wear, and the smaller size won't help, but this print is of the '68 comeback special, and actually not one of the more common ones. It would make sense to treat stains, iron it and list as Jimmy has suggested.

Thanks for additional info, CRAZYBUBBA! So it's from 1968 or do you think it was done in the 70s? What would you suggest for the stains? I used OxiClean MaxForce Pre-Treater Gel Stick, which seemed to help, but obviously it didn't eliminate them. Should I just keep using that and running it through a warm wash until they're gone?

To the best of my knowledge, no shirts were made for the comeback special, but the images are very popular (My profile pic on this forum is from the the same show).

I don't really know about stain removal, my housekeeper handles that :lol:
