80s Samples Samples Samples Mantronix?

Post by TimeForMemories »

Any help ID-ing this one? Definitely an 80s tee. Not sure if it's from The Samples band, or some 80s movie, computer related, or just something random. Any thoughts?

Mantronix uses the same font and repetition for an album cover. If it's not officially theirs, definitely someone intending to leverage their branding.

Their tees can fetch a lot.

Wow, no joke, man! The Mantronix ones on eBay are up there! Do you think this one could fetch a similar figure since it's such an obvious similarity, even if it's not officially theirs? The "Samples" seems to make sense with the group since it's hip hop and sampling was big in that genre. Would you do a high price with offers or try an auction with a higher start price?

Thanks so much for steering me in the right direction with this one, Jimmy! I probably would have never found that correlation!
