repros of the utterly mundane redux

Post by zargosh »

It's often said on the board that it's unlikely that anyone is bothering to reproduce "shirt x" because it's just not worth enough for the time or the effort. You'll definitely see some Nirvana heart shaped box fakes, but you're unlikely to come across a fake Paul McCartney new world tour '93 shirt.

Enter ebay seller dacha-901

Dacha-901 generally lists them as vintage, which is misleading, but If you plow through the verbiage and know what you're looking at, it's clear that they're repros (decoration type: digital print, made by gildan, etc.). And, of course, you can get any size you want so that should tip almost anybody off that they're repros.

The pics are pretty lo-res, so it's hard to assess the print, but you can see that they're actual shots of the repros themselves, since they're sporting Gildan tags.

So what is the story with a seller like this? And how does that fit into the idea that no one is reproducing small ticket items?

:o

A repro/bootleg operation that clearly didn't do much research and as a result will have a ton of Paul Mccartney t-shirts kicking around! But yeah, I don't think they're out there trying to fool anyone. They're just like, "we got cheap ass concert tees!"

Looks like they do 2022 concerts too.

ha! That's probably true. I do think it makes shirts without tags even more questionable, though. If there's bootleg mccartney new world tour shirts, what shirts aren't being bootlegged? Michael Franks, maybe. Dacha-901 is also printing some 1990s moody blues tees, in case you wanted something with even a little less of a market :?
