Re: Led Zeppelin shirt

I didn't even notice the cancelled on it. I'm wondering how many of these are floating around...if any? Nice one to have, any how.

Re: Led Zeppelin shirt

Interesting shirt, since Zeppelin broke up in late 1980 following the death of John Bonham and never toured at all in '81. I'm unsure whether this would make it desirable due to scarcity, or undesirable due to questions of it's legitimacy.

Re: When Did Hanes Double Tags Emerge?

As this awful 1993 Hanes TV commercial proves ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caN_0eAlNYU ), the swoosh through the H logo was already established by then. I used to assume it was a late 90's incarnation, likely because that design was used well into the 2000's. Wrong I was. Also, Hanes was alread...

Re: YFU georgia 1979 baning rebel flag adidas

I don't know what that is over the shirt. I don't think the circle forward slash symbol came into common use until Ghostbusters in 1984. The circle w/ backward slash started to be used as a prohibition symbol i.e. "No Smoking" prior to that. Perhaps early 80's.

Sports Image Inc tag

I'll complete this t-shirt label dump with a 1990 Sports Image Inc. shirt & tag featuring Dale Earnhardt Sr. I've never had great success with NASCAR shirts, even 80's shirts of icons like Earnhardt & Richard Petty. Possibly a mix of oversupply & the racing demographic being cheap (or fiscally respo...

Active-T (Orange Label) tag

This is a 1990 Little Richard t-shirt with an Active-T tag. Made in France, and apparently they employed different colored labels, for whatever reason.

5050(?) tag

This late 80's Metallica t-shirt tag is faded on the left side, but I'm assuming it originally said 5050. Though it could be something else. It's certainly a poly-cotton shirt. https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5478/30473501573_6d18400e26_b.jpg https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5568/31281240595_5d30bddc54_b...

Here's Whats New in California by Westwood tag

I love this tag! This shirt is from between 1976-79 when Furay was signed to Asylum. This is the first vintage t-shirt I ever picked up, though unfortunately it's a small so I could never wear it...something that has pissed me off ever since.. :) https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5761/31136665652_8f3f6c...
