Re: handmade FDNY 70s' Bklyn firehouse Cuckoo's Nest tee

The orange may have been fill in color using a permanent marker (the yellow also). It doesn't look from the print that the red is a marker. If the shirt said Brooklyn or NYC anywhere on it, it would definitely get more interest.

Re: Public Enemy, Cypress Hill & Sick of it all

Vintage PE shirts are in demand, and can go anywhere from $100-$200 on up, and an ultra rare one can go much higher. I'm not sure how rare yours are. Most PE shirts being sold today are overpriced Supreme or garage repros (worded to make it sound vintage...until you click & see a "pick your size" bu...

Re: Misfits 'Legacy Of Brutality'

Giant/Tultex shirts, from my experience, have been early to mid 90's. I'm assuming the tag says Made in US.

Re: Ricky Scaggs tee - Please help with value/date?

Without a tag, it's hard to pin down exactly. The graphics look straight out of the 80's, though. Country music and NASCAR are two areas I avoid if possible. NASCAR product is just over-produced, and their fans aren't enamored with vintage shirts. Plus, they're tight with the buck. Country music fan...

Re: Run DMC 80s Tshirt

It looks like a legit 80's Adidas tag from the RDMC "My Adidias" era (1986). It has a lot going for it....the NYC skyline with the Twin Towers, the Adidias Trefoil logo, the band/shoe company tie in, the Adidas tag, the XL size. The RDMC logo has been used to death by everyone in recent years...whic...

Re: Calvin Klein Blank Tees - Era & Value?

Using the below logo sequence found at deelynx.com as a guide, it appears the shirt was manufactured sometime after 1992. The somewhat larger C is the clue.

Re: Grants?

W T Grant was an American retailer that operated for 70 years before going under in 1976. So any Grants tagged items you have are '76 or earlier.

I've got a couple of 80's shirts with an early/mid-80's paper Ebert tag.... https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/866/41262317742_b0eabbfcb4_c.jpg This blue shirt has a fabric tag with the same design.

Re: New York Rangers 3 quarter shirt

It's not licensed by the team or NHL. It appears to be a local league jersey with letters applied by a local screen printer. Of little value other than nostalgia value for Shawn.

Re: Allman Brothers 1979

It appears to be a legit t-shirt from that era. Jimmy can give you a better range, but I'd list it at $150 with offers. This was technically the beginning of their reunion era, but few shirts from their pre-reunion era (esp. their time before Duane Allman was killed) exist.
