Cheap Trick

file under: forever part of rock history

rare and original Cheap Trick World Tour t-shirt
year: 1980-81
tag: Hanes
material: 100% cotton
condition: excellent vintage
value: $300
note: condition is amazing for being over 30 years old. size is XL with minimal shrinkage so it can still be worn in 2012. most of the early 100% cotton rock tees from this period are too small and are only good as collector pieces. i like to wear the tees in my collection which adds a degree of difficulty in finding these pieces. front graphic is one of the best from the era. One of all-time my favorites.

70's Coors Bikini Girl

file under: iconic

rare original Coors promotional t-shirt
year: circa 1975-77
tag: too faded to read
material: 100% cotton
condition: excellent vintage
value: $175
note: picked from a bundle a while back from my favorite dealer. have not seen another one like so far. i remember in the 70's when the back print was actually preferable. now a days not so much. best vintage Coors tee in my collection hands down.
