Hello,I was directed here about some unique Vintage Star Wars T-shirts from early 80'S..
I believe one of the members here has a similar one..I don't know what kind of Meds the people were on designing these shirts they are very odd lol.

I remember picking these up..I was told supposedly The Darth Vader on the Taun-Taun was Fan club exclusive also the Yoda was For enlisting to the fan club..
The Yoda is sealed in package size medium - tag says Rn 27522 100% cotton made in Pakistan .
Vader is sealed in package -size medium -tag says Rn 27522 (((has the word I believe DRUMMER on tag))) 100% cotton made in Pakistan. .

Thanks!I picked them from a collector who was sure that the Vader was a fan club exclusive. The Yoda he thinks was for enlisting to the club..As a Star Wars collector for 35+ years never saw these.I just want to know origins of these .

Well, aside from the Yoda/Taun-Taun I have, these are the only other two that have surfaced (that I know of.)

This is the first time I have seen the labels so let me do some investigative work and email a few fellow collectors (Star Wars) and see what I can turn up.

I am very interested in purchasing/trading for your shirts if you're willing to sell.... that Vader is awesome.

I'm at the office currently so I'll start my research when I get home.

In the meantime, try looking through the database at theswca.com There are literally hundreds of different shirts listed there and now that we know Drummer is on the label, a keyword search there may turn something up.

Congrats man, those t's are great!

P.S. The Lionel price tag is from Lionel Kiddie City toy store that I heard was run out of business by Toys 'r' Us. As to the value I would say low-end $50-$75 each, high-end who knows? The prices for vintage Star Wars stuff is hard to determine nowadays due to so many anomalies happening everyday. Plus, we are in the midst of a huge star wars boom with the new movies. In my experience though, the weirder the item, the more desirable it is. I'd like first crack at them so if you would like to talk about it with me, let me know.
