Vintage 1984 Scorpions - Love At First Sting Tour T-Shirt

file under: when metal ruled

rare original Scorpions - Love At First Sting Tour t-shirt
year: 1984
tag: too faded to read
material: 50/50 cotton-polyester blend
condition: excellent vintage
value: $300
*note: the Scorpions were one of the hottest tickets around back in the day. we never missed a show when they came to town. this tee is from one of their longest world tours, lasting almost 2 years from 1984-1986 in support of their biggest selling album in the U.S. to date "Love at First Sting" which went triple platinum in 1984. of course in those days i spent all my extra cash on beer instead of t-shirts (plus it wasn't really cool back then to buy the tour t-shirts, only dorks did that). so in my obsessive pursuit to collect all the t-shirts I should have bought i acquired this last year for a fair price. condition is excellent for being almost 30 years old. no stains, holes or rips. original size was XL so even after god knows how many times through the hot washer and dryer by it's original owner the fit is still perfect today! a favorite in my collection.

the good ol' days!
