whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.... :o say it aint so! You probably could have fetched $100-200 smackers for that...just print out the images of the labels in this forum and on our site...no vintage should ever be harmed in the process.... :cry:

Easy there tiger. It's just vintage clothing. 8-)

I find that original labels photocopy better and I'd like to hold on to the label for my personal collection.

Also, educating our staff is a priority over selling individual pieces for a $100. If my people are better educated they'll be able to pick up more of these things and make us alot more than $200.

I don't really have to patience to list things one by one on ebay. I don't know how you guys do it, waiting for a buyer can be frustrating.

That makes sense since the rags came from the Baltimore area.

The question is: What kid wears an xl? It still fits like a large after 50 years.

Found a champion nylon jacket this week. Trying to date this tag. I haven't seen any comments on the black runner champion labels.

can't seem to find one like it on redcloud - but they say all of the thin horizontal style ones are 60s.

lets see the rest of the jacket!

Yeah, I'd agree with nicotine's assessment based upon the collar.

While sometimes it's worthwhile to keep in mind that 70s collars were actually a revival of the 40s wingtip collars, I'm pretty sure that yours is a 70s issue, it looks like the material is nylon.
