Mr. Goodbar Tee: Star 77 & LRY Star 80 on Back, College Lane Tag
Hello Defunkd'ers,

I'm seeking help in learning more about a Mr. Goodbar T-Shirt that I just found.

It has a College Lane Tag. And on the back it has "STAR 77" and "LRY STAR 80". (See photos.) It's single stitch and made of 50/50 material.

Any idea what "STAR 77" and "LRY STAR 80" mean? (When I do a Google search, the 1983 movie "Star 80" pops up. And that gets me thinking about the 1977 movie "Looking for Mr. Goodbar".)

Also any thoughts as to the approximate age of the t-shirt?

Thanks for your help.
Justin

Hey man!

At first glance I thought that tag looked pretty old, they did a great job of designing it as such. But it also seemed kinda odd to be 50/50 - usually, tags that have that look are from the 100% cotton era.

I checked our database and couldn't find it, after Googling realized it looks to be a 90s/00s retro brand - there are other examples floating around, even another Hershey's one.

None of the others I found online like yours have any back detail. I'm assuming that was added by someone aftermarket, not fully sure what it means. Maybe it was customized by the company for their employee bowling team or something. But wouldn't put much value on it.
