I recent picked up this t-shirt and I did some research and it seems that The Regents were a doo-wop group, but there were 5 of them. This shirt has 3 guys and I'm wondering if the tee is from some reunion gig. Help with the era (70s/80s?) and possible value.

Thanks!

Great addition tag wise - a Sportswear tag I have never seen - but it follows the same typeface as some 80s Sportswear tags.

Can you track down the guys who are named on the front? Do they coincide with those listed on Wiki? Maybe some of them passed away by the 80s and these were the surviving members.

Actually, one the guys on the t-shirt -- Guy Villari -- has a website and it appears that the group re-formed for a period in 1973 with Guy as the only original member. The Wiki is based of his website. I think I'm going to shoot him an email to ask about the other two guys and see if I can't nail down the time period.
