It looks like it says "SUN" underneath the graphic but it's a little worn off unfortunately.

This graphic is very distinctive from between the years 1980 to 1983. It's definitely early 80's.

The muscle tank was also very popular during this time. Just look at how many of the 1983 "US Festival" tees are the muscle tank.

By 1985 surf and skate companies had transitioned away from this kind of "good vibrations" theme with flowers and rainbows and started doing more "New Wave/Punk" graphics with abstract geometric shapes and day-glo colors.

I know because I was the one printing them. :D

Good point. The ones from mid to late 80's are much more "radical" looking. lol
