Re: Dry Rot

Fairly certain Jimmy has narrowed it down.

It's a chemical in the black dye that ultimately disintegrates the fabric.

Years of extreme temperature changes would also contribute to the process.

Re: Warning: Offensive T-Shirt. How to Market/Worth?

Re: Awesome Cramps tee.

Yes. The black screen moved or got bumped during the printing process. Consequently the black didn't line up with the red. Black is always the last color to be printed. In this case the red would have been printed first and then the black. The t-shirt does not move during the printing process as it ...

Re: New York dolls vintage shirt

I think when all is said and done the seller in Thailand honestly thought it was the real thing.
