Elvis Presley Continentals Fan Club Tee

Post by CRAZYBUBBA »

It's actually post-elvis but it could do well since it's unique and there seems to be a real dearth of non-iron-on elvis stuff out there.

The face on the shirt looks more like Bruce Campbell with bushy sideburns in Bubba Ho-Tep:

'tis true, and what's with the mustache/lips? Those other blotches were needed to define his cheekbones and face.

This was probably in the 80s when Elvis Presley enterprises took over all rights to the reproduction of Elvis' image and the club was likely forced to use whatever means at hand to immortalize the king in poly-cotton form.

Anyway, the new owner of the shirt is..... me! I love Elvis so this tee is a bargain, IMO. I picked it up for less than $20 including shipping.
