Screen Stars has a cousin?

Post by waxandthreads » Mon Oct 21, 2013 12:45 pm

Found this label on a 1985 NHRA Drag Racing shirt. Thought the label design looked familiar. Checked the RN Number and it's 13765 (the same RN Number as Screen Stars) manufactured by the Union Underwear Company.

Nice one man! Never seen - but definitely the top part is identical. The tag obviously had a one night stand.

This tag reminded me of the early 80s Screen Stars tag. Sure enough, has the same RN number (RN 13765) as Screen Stars. Hot damn...another cousin.

Art Works! I understand the sports version ..Artex offshoot but why Art Works? Maybe they were creating custom brands/ blanks for various companies...whats the print?

Huh, I never knew that about Art Works, but thinking back on a few shirts I've found with that tag, it makes complete sense now.
