Hey L - tough to say. Seems like any all over print is now being tagged as mosquitohead. If it is - its certainly a very common one - theres a handful of these sold recently for $50 to $100 in eBays past listings.

Theres also a Monroe tee that the hallmarks of a true mosquitohead tee - with splashes of color and tie-dye style ink patterns that sold for $300.

Also worth noting that the majority of the sought after ones were printed on Hanes or Stedman single tags.

The one you're after is a double tag fotl.

Im also going to reach out to a mosquitohead employee.
