Blocked bidders

A partner and myself block all buyers that have reported items as not received or were deadbeat and did not pay. Anyone else want to post their lists and compile a master list of the buyers that make our lives hell?? Could save us all some future heartache... and a few gray hairs. 10daym, 2010rashad...

Earliest date on black tag SCREEN STARS

Just wondering what the earliest dates are on the black tag Screen Stars tees. Just found one dated 1987. Not a copyright date either, for an actual event.

Re: Modern Day Bootleggers?

Before reading this thread, I was looking at some of AC listings and was a bit suspicious. I simply asked if a shirt was original and about the tag, but received no answer. I decided to bid anyway and just take the risk only to find they had blocked me from bidding on their items. Guess they work on...

How you score.

Of course I don't expect anyone to spill any top secret info or anything, but just curious how other collectors/vendors enjoy getting the goods and what things are like in other regions. I live in the South (US), and my favorite way is to do multiple day Thrift Store adventures. I live in my car for...

Oh Screen Stars.... just when I thought I knew you.

wtf?
Shirt feels like wife beater....has lace .....and has a Screen Stars tag I've never seen. Looks like bootleg tag, but who in the world would want to bootleg Screen Stars in 1984?

Oldest PRINCE concert shirt?

The PRINCE experts think this could be his earliest known concert shirt. He was on his 1st ever tour and was playing smaller clubs. Tour started Nov 5 1979. The concert on the shirt was a 1-off show in Nashville with only 7 previous concerts before this date. http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc191...

Re: Mr. Cooper......AGAIN.

Yeah, I won't be wearing this one. It's NOS. I'm building a collection of vtg music related shirts for my 2 year old son. I think of the things I wish I could of had from my dad's youth and it's his records and t-shirts. The best one in the collection so far is a NOS 1979 Prince concert shirt. The P...

Re: Mr. Cooper......AGAIN.

Yeah. Was expecting screen print. Not too familiar with heat transfers, but do they fill the entire area of the image? I guess what I'm asking is on this shirt, all of the black in the image is from the shirt and you can feel the fabric, where the rest of the design feels very synthetic. My idea of ...
