Re: Problems on Ebay with labels

Sorry about your misfortunes. I too would take the lesson & move on. I agree with you about Paypal's customer service. My account got hacked & wiped out twice within a month (like an idiot I logged in on a Radisson wi-fi account while in the Philippines), but they tracked the transaction and credite...

Re: Problems on Ebay with labels

Nice shirts! When you get them back, send the buyer a link to this thread...to prove to him that he's an idiot. Then block him. On Ebay, the seller has little recourse. I just had a shirt with a $200 bid...that got sniped at the last second...then the sniper didn't pay and ignored all contact. I cou...

Re: "Tribute to Elvis" Eagle Shirt, Ron Olson, Stedman

If it was me, I would wait for the upcoming Elvis release with the Royal Orchestra & others, and try to ride the buzz. You can try a higher auction start bid to gauge interest. Within 2-3 days, a shirt that is going to attract attention (and bids) will have at least a few watchers after 2 days. Afte...

Re: "Tribute to Elvis" Eagle Shirt, Ron Olson, Stedman

Kodel© polyester was present on garment tags in the 60's thru the 80's. Which would coincide with the likely date of the Tribute to Elvis design...soon after his death in August 1977. But if I had to guess, this shirt was trying to cash in on Elvis nostalgia sometime in the 80's. I don't believe thi...

Re: 1983? Team Nike Sports Nike Swoosh Sweatshirt Question

The Team Nike Sports tag/patch first appeared in 1985. There's always an off chance that it's a bootleg with anything Nike, but more than likely it's a legit late-80's product. I have a few items similar to this with the same tags. The large scale Nike bootlegging didn't really take off until the sp...

Re: A TEAM REAL OR NOT SCREEN STARS ?

IMO, almost certainly a legit 80's Screen Stars shirt & print, from when A-Team was popular. Nice shirt, though mediums are harder to move than Large and greater sizes.

Re: Real Dead head Tee?

Almost certainly a recent reproduction. I have some old Delta shirts that say Made in the USA from what I believed to be early 90's. Though from a comment by JimmyJ in another recent Delta post: "Delta is a tricky one - history says it's been around since the 1900s....became public in 2000...incorpo...

Re: Values?

I'd estimate the Starship shirt at $75, at least as a minimum starting bid. Of course, it's all about finding the right buyer, which can take some time. While a t-shirt quilt would be cool, I'd do it with more recent reproduction shirts, not vintage shirts like this. That would be considered blasphe...

Re: Vintage Stanford Shirts

Put it up at the price Jimmy recommended and be patient for the right buyer. The problem with college shirts is supply...I sometimes wonder if the universities are in the education or the jersey/hat/t-shirt business. I really like the shirt with the sleeve stripes, even with the hole. It's different...

Re: Hanes Tee? repro or not

The Classics & the 100% algodon text on the tag makes it, as Jimmy said, a likely post 2000 shirt, or at least a post '94 NAFTA item. I assume it's not made in the USA...which is a huge issue with many t-shirt purists. Production location aside, if it was a band t-shirt, it might have some value. Gi...
