Vintage Robert Johnson R.Crumb, Liquid Blue Jerry Garcia

Post by Kharwayne »

I apologize because I’m going to have to make two separate posts for these couple shirts I can just not nail down a value or appraisal on. There’s so much different information out there and I’ve been researching them for over a year so PLEASE hopefully someone recognize something!

-size XL, Liquid Blue, Jerry Gracie tee, estimated from 1995

-EXTREMELY RARE Robert Johnson artwork by R.Crumb, only a few left, Hanes, estimated from 1990

Very cool thanks for sharing.

The modern collectors seem to go nuts for Liquid Blue tags, as well as more modern Dead tees. It's an XL size which maxes out the value in terms of size. That said, it looks a little beat up, with stains? One thing that modern collectors don't seem to be as ok with with is stains. Have you tried to improve the appearance of it?

One of those in size L went for $200 on eBay in 2021. I'd put it around there, but more if you can clean it up and make it nice and crispy.

Love the R. Crumb Robert Johnson one. Not sure on size but looks like an 80s tag? I don't think your top customer would be the modern scene - but you've got a sweet combo of two search terms. Also not sure about on condition but I'd put it in the $300+ range. I think Crumb tees are super undervalued right now. He's also getting up there in age and we all know what happens when an artist passes. That said, I hope he lives until 100. ha.
