Re: Year of this Southern Athletic tag on Hendrix Shirt?

Yeah unfortunately even if 100% accurate and legit - because these are transfers - they can be added to any blank, so the value takes a huge hit. Understood. I really appreciate all the expertise. I don't ever sell any shirts, I only collect, so if the value isn't high it's no biggie to me, and I d...

Re: Year of this Southern Athletic tag on Hendrix Shirt?

***UPDATE*** I asked the seller if they knew any info on the background of the shirt, and this was their reply: “It was sold on consignment for a client who’s father worked for a radio station in New York from the 60s- early 80s” Of course they could say anything but thought it was interesting addit...

Re: Year of this Southern Athletic tag on Hendrix Shirt?

The shirt itself is definitely old, however it's a relatively common iron-on/heat transfer graphic. Therefore it's really hard to say when the graphic was applied to the shirt.

Re: Year of this Southern Athletic tag on Hendrix Shirt?

I don't have a great read on when those tags first emerged off hand. But we do have a few examples in our database: https://www.defunkd.com/brand/southern-athletic/ It could be late 60s.

Hey all! I picked up this Jimi Hendrix shirt with a tag that I think is late 60’s to early 70’s. Was wondering if anyone had a more accurate guess on year production? Of course I’m interested to know if this shirt was printed prior to Hendrix’s death in 1970. Thanks so much for any information and e...
