Hey Bender24,

Here's my appraisal of the shirts you have listed:

Hank Willams Fan Club Tee - despite condition $25-$40.00 range

Joe Cocker '88 European Tour sweatshirt- unusual but little demand for this item $20-$30

Motely Crue "Dr. Feelgood" Tour shirt - poor condition decreases value $30-$50

Cinderella "Long Cold Winter" Tour Crew Shirt - unusual but very little demand $20

Billy Joel/Elton John '94 "Face to Face" Tour - more of a funky novelty tee than a real collectors piece $20-$25

Concert/Tour t-shirts from the 80's that bring top dollar are:

Iron Maiden
Motorhead
Ratt
Motley Crue
Judas Priest
Scorpions
Metallica
Megadeth
Dio
Slayer
Def Leppard
Van Halen
AC/DC
The Clash
The Cars
Stray Cats
The Smiths

If you have more tees post pics and I'll give you my opinion on their value. So far the 1985 Iron Maiden in New York is the most valuable. That tee was only printed for that particular 7 night run they did. Production was limited in comparison to some of the much longer massive tours they did a few years later. Additionally that fact that it's an XL also increases the value significantly because more than likely it will fit an adult collector in 2012.

Hope that helps.

I'm really suprised they might be worth that much! Thanks, I figured no one would be into the sweat shirt. ha ha!

I'll keep digging, I think there may be some more shirts from bands on your list, we'll I hope so anyway. I'll keep you posted!

Wow, that's very encouraging! I've never sold anything on ebay but I will have to start, and soon.

I haven't look for others yet, but you can bet I will be!

Thanks Johnny65!
