Re: BMTH screaming bloody face graphic t-shirt?

I think it's probably 2000s? With stuff like this you can use a Google image search and paste the URL in or even upload the image. When I did that it brought back this Twitter account who uses it as his profile image: https://twitter.com/LucaCharles/photo In his bio he says he's a comic and manga re...

Re: Grateful Dead shirt Shrine Auditorium Blue Cheer Tee

I spoke with our resident 70s guy. Thinks it's probably a parking lot boot from this show: https://www.classicposters.com/poster/sha19680711/?fbclid=IwAR1la5a1-ATlkdJU3kYgM6eFOcu-1N4iMUhqvfo9r8gBbX0Cn8Up-q7CsrI He thinks he could be worth a few hundred bucks. Apparently there's a lot of homemade typ...

Re: A 1970s Watergate Scandal Tee in pristine condition found in Viet Nam for less than $2. What a day!

Thanks for sharing! beauty! I did a little digging and that design seems to be more unique, I found other don't bug me shirts and none like yours. Now that the single stitch double stitch thing is on my radar - I noticed the collar was double-stitched, dug around, and found another example of the sa...

Re: 70s The Allman Brothers Band Brothers and Sisters Tee

So now we know the print is not legit. But what about the shirt, was this printed on a true vintage blank? That may be the case given it seems to be so obscure. Or is the double stitching an indication that this is a modern tee? Maybe the tag was sewn in? I used the RN dating method with 61066 and g...

Re: 70s The Allman Brothers Band Brothers and Sisters Tee

Good eye Max. Here's a side by side of the rear print, with a true version, yellow, that was featured in a book. You can see it's wrong. All of the fonts are off. On the true version the fonts are bolder, and look to be italicized. Whoever put this together got lazy and decided to just find similar ...

Re: 70s The Allman Brothers Band Brothers and Sisters Tee

Thanks for posting here! This is an interesting one. Initially, I thought the 19" p2p was a bit of a red flag, seems quite big for a 70s M, but then realized that it's deadstock, it just hasn't been washed yet, so that checks out. Obviously, the one-color print can be a red flag since they are ...

Re: Screen Stars Tag, real or fake.

Is this the one you purchased? https://www.ebay.com/itm/154757117723 or another instance of this tee on the same tag? There are a lot of red flags on this black flag shirt. Check out this side-by-side with another shirt... a lot of missing details (click on it for a close-up). For one, the L and A a...

Re: Screen Stars Tag, real or fake.

Awesome thanks for sharing the photos. I'm always suspicious of one-color prints, and Black Flag tees over the years have been a target of bootleggers due to the simplicity of a lot of their shirts. So yeah, look at the collar - it's a double-stitched. Can you please share the link to the eBay listi...

Re: Screen Stars Tag, real or fake.

Thanks for sharing Dave (oops sorry!) This one is kinda bizarre, to be honest. But I've been documenting SS tags made outside of the USA on our main guide: https://www.defunkd.com/blog/2016/12/06/the-screen-stars-timeline/ Canada, Ireland, but never remember seeing Honduras, ever. Let alone a double...
