a few from the archives

Post by bodhi »

You guys inspired me to dig up some old listing photos. Unfortunately, I didn't really make much effort to keep or catalog photos from some of my early listings, so a few of these I just happened to still have by sheer luck. Not all are super-rare, but some are and some are just cool to see again.

This is the tee that started it all for us (bought it at a thrift store bag sale, sold it for a little north of $100 to a collector in Japan):
Image

Image

Our first high-dollar Harley shirt (might have been a 3D Emblem, I can't remember):
Image

This was a youth-size Andre the Giant sweatshirt that a few people went ape over:
Image
Image

another tee that got competitive, a 1990 Kiss, Winger and Slaughter tour tee (sweet!):

Image
Image

Whitney Houston tour tee, who knew?
Image

YES "the big tour" tee:

Image

Please Hammer don't hurt 'em:

Image

for you NPR fans, a rare-ish Prairie Home Companion Powdermilk Biscuits tee:
Image

Random REO Speedwagon:
Image
Image

Skid Row 1989 tour:
Image
Image

rare-ish Police Syncronicity tour long sleeve tee:
Image
Image

another one that folks went nutty over:
Image

This one took us by surprise. This is what they call the KU "bad tongue" mascot (you can guess why). This design wasn't in print long, and apparently is highly sought after by Kentucky fans:
Image

Van Halen 5150 tour tees (the first one is the one worn by Keanu Reeves in the first (or second) Bill & Ted movie):
Image
Image
Image
Image

Whippets 70's era tank in the lower left corner, another random rare one:
Image

A few more random band tees:
Image
Image
Image

Another one I hadn't seen before, somewhat worn Ice Cube post-NWA era tee (this one went in the $50 range):
Image
Image

So yeah, a whole lot of random but I thought some of you might enjoy seeing a few of these. Feel free to archive the photos for reference, all of these are long since sold. Thanks again for the mighty fine forum!

Oh, and this puppy (not a tee, but I saw a RL-themed blog post on here so why not?). This is still the most valuable piece we've ever sold on Ebay. Polo Ralph Lauren "Alpine" rugby shirt (same line as the "River" one featured on the Defunkd blog). Initially got bid up to $1200, only to have the high bidder back out. Re-listed, it finally sold for $800:

(sorry for the terrible picture, I must have deleted all the others)
