Sinead O'Connor- Late 80's

Post by lord ched »

The great condition Sinead shirt I just snagged for $2. Screen Stars tag, only a little cracking on the "Sinead O'Connor." Could be a vintage bootleg; no copyright, definition is a little meh on the illustration, rubbery feel to the silkscreening. Still, slammin' Sinead, though a 21" XL size will hurt its chances in some quarters. There's someone selling a '97 Sinead shirt for $99.99: I think that slightly nuts, but if that's a testament to the Fighter of the Real Enemy's selling power would it be out of the question for me to set the same price?

I think it probably has some collectibility, especially with a Screen Stars tag, bootleg or otherwise.

As for the '97 Sinead tee for $99 bucks...that's a stretch.

agreed - might be a fixed price situation. put it in your store - just make sure you don't have any andrew dice clay t-shirts in there at the same time.

$99 is a good starting point....same price as the other one for a better shirt. you can always lower the price if it doesn't move.

Thanks! And I think it better that she shows up in my store rather than yours... I think the Pope still harbors a grudge.

haha, "fighter of the real enemy" had me cracking up. she jacked up her career with that stunt.

Every girl I had a crush on in high school had "the lion and the cobra" on cassette and thought it very powerful and deep. there's your target market.

To be honest, I would have kept it if it had been my size- no badass females in my collection (which, as I just dropped 40 pounds, has mostly been sold off so as to start again at medium size). And though I don't remember any of my crushes having that album, they too were all in that general margin of middle-class rebellious error. I once swooned over a Leonard Cohen fan...
