it's a sad day in vintage t-shirt land if that's a repro. Joe was probably shaking his head thinking, "with all the fakes i sell, i get called out on a christopher cross??"

Looks like Joe is trying to get a new name going?

His backup site in case one gets suspended. He doesn't want to lose all the income he's generating out of his home-based screen printing shop. :evil:

Bootlegging all of those shirts seems like more trouble than it's worth- he can only sell a few at a time and the set up costs seem prohibitive. What am I missing? It seems like a lot of work for not much payoff?

He sells them in "buy it now" listings with prices and "vintage" offerings that rival mr taters and milk's offerings. If even half his buyers file chargebacks he's still doing well.. I mean the guy just has to print another one right? Add his flea market sales to the mix and it's def worthwhile. He's in a class of his own, Tinalove and TP don't hold a candle to him.
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!

I don't understand the logic behind this at all. Unless he's wracked up a certain amount of warnings from eBay and is nearing a suspension - but then why would he keep the same name?

There's a lot of goodness attached to an account with 5k transactions, the favorite seller feature is a huge boost for getting his items built in traffic - but with a new account, that vanishes.

My view on him - the majority of his stuff is real. We all know this because we competed against him for years in buying legit tees listed on eBay. He sprinkles bogus stuff throughout - he actually admitted this to me years ago (pre-defunkd blog, email still saved) when I tried rallying sellers to join an legit tee alliance because of Tiny Pony and offered he be a part of it, he declined.

Why don't we ask the man himself?

Joe, I know you're reading this, please explain.
