So, this doesn't match any of the tags we have on record:

That said, several alarm bells go off. Compare the G to this:

It's missing a part. "Activewear" is different. They goofed on the "U" it's higher than the baseline. That blue line extends out to the edge of the border. The I and the L are not even.

What is the pit to pit, btw?

Ahhh okay damn didn’t even know those differences. They have the Ptp or “chest” as 18.5” I’ve seen other listings with the exact same tags with the Ptp being 18.5”-20.5”

Hey I just went back to the listing and noticed it just got authenticated. Ik Grailed isn’t 100% accurate so what do think?

I saw that too.

I would avoid like the plague! There's a potential this was a boot sold outside stadiums in that era, and they took extra care to try to get the tag right. But probably something sold online in that tour era.

What you can do is try to find another shirt, any other shirt, with a tag that matches the one on this. Seach on eBay and try to find another example of this tag on another shirt.
