Possibly 80s? Ruger Handguns T-Shirt

Post by jbPortland »

Found this at a local Goodwill store. First red flag for me was the condition, this shirt is absolutely immaculate, true "new old stock". The Sneakers tag is also mint. Shirt has clearly never been worn. Things that make me think it might be authentic include the fact that the tag is Sneakers and the weight/feel of the fabric. I also couldn't find this design currently for sale online on a mass production level. I've tried to include as many pictures as possible. If it is authentic, this is easily one of the best condition vintage shirts I've ever seen, and by far the best condition vintage shirt I own. Only comparable item on ebay I could find was http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vtg-RUGER-rifle ... 19d2a1adfa. Thoughts? Thank you all for your input.

Real and wicked, 80s for sure. I used to have one in red. Don't think you have to worry about authenticity - it's just deadstock.

Yeah, that is a nice one. I've had vintage Ruger hats and 2 different color satin jackets from the 80's era with the same design, all did very well.
