Very cool! I don't remember ever seeing this exact front print? Their other Euro 1990s tees seem to fetch between $75-125 regularly. I can't find another example like this one currently.

I'll loop in Max, our resident Stones expert and see what he thinks!

Max thinks it could be a vintage bootleg. Very cool nonetheless.

Bootleg is an unofficial t-shirt - it wasn't made by the band or its partners. Made by entrepreneurial third parties, and sold outside of concert venues, back then.

They are usually original designs.

And they are still collectible.
