Champion/America's Finest? Is this legit?

Post by TimeForMemories » Mon Mar 21, 2016 5:11 pm

Grabbed this sweatshirt the other day because I was curious about it. It has a Champion logo in puffy print, but the tag is "America's Finest." Back is blank. Is this a bootleg or something or did Champion use "America's Finest" for at some point?

I would guess it is a fake.

Yup bootleg agreed. Champion has had their own label since their inception many many decades ago. I saw an Americas Finest tag recently - damn cant remember where.

90s for sure - Champion was like Supreme at one point in the early 90s. I had a few bboy/bgirl friends that were always in it.

Thanks, guys! That's what I figured, but thought I'd check to be sure. Does it still have any value?

Might be able to get $20 out of it but the market is flooded by real ones...so may sit for a while.
