Vintage 1983 Def Leppard Rock Till You Drop Tour T-Shirt

file under: classic NWOBHM

hard to find original Def Leppard - Rock Till You Drop tour t-shirt
year: 1983
tag: screen stars
material: 100% cotton
condition: excellent vintage 
value: $250
note: a really nice addition to my collection acquired this year from the original owner. for some reason I've only seen this particular tee in the 100% cotton version. my guess is they were less expensive to print on when the order for the tour shirts was made by Def Leppard's management. I definitely prefer the Screen Stars 50/50's as they've aged much better than the 100% cotton tees but if you can find an XL like this one that hasn't been worn or washed too many times, which is very rare, it will still fit today. Def Leppard's concerts were some of the best I attended back in the day and their first 3 albums still get heavy rotation on my turntable!
