I came across this Anvil t-shirt (says 1996), but I've never seen "Soft as a Grape" before. Anyone seen this?

I added a close-up of the t-shirt design below.

It is indeed softer than a grape. (sorry - couldn't resist). Seriously, you can tell the shirt was never worn and it is pretty soft.

Interestingly enough, there is a company called Soft as a Grape that began in the 70s that makes t-shirts. http://softasagrape.info/shop/index.php ... =page&id=2

I'm wondering if they had some sort of short-lived joint venture with Anvil in the 90s?

Saw one of these today at a thrift store. Didn't have the anvil part though. It was a blank and this one actually wasn't very soft at all.
