Fuck that looks amazing, but Id need to see it in person. I think nike knocked off their own old tag. Are you sure its actually vintage cause something smells fishy.
Whats the fabric content? That wear don't look right.

50% Poly / 38% Cotton / 12% Rayon

It looks like the "J" and "Pine street Inn" were added later. Does that increase or decrease the value? What age do you think it is?

Oh and thanks for making this thread, you have inspired me to buy Tees icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

obviously i'm not the expert here, but i actually assumed the j and the pine street inn were ironed onto an old nike shirt...

 

seems like a server or something at a local spot used this as a uniform, maybe employment didn't last long? seems as likely as anything. also, i'm looking at the bias of the knit and that seems old or at least old-school to me... show the seams on the sleeve hems and the bottom hem, if they're the old style i'd call it an old shirt (yes i know they still do that stuff but i've not seen that done on new nikes myself). $.02

 

btw, some of the old shirts that i see in thrifts are in cherry shape, occasionally deadstock. maybe there's no wear cause it wasn't really worn all that much. love the trompe l'oeil graphic i think this is badass.

imma presume a little more and add something else to this thread that i've noticed:

 

here are the bottom hems of 2 t-shirts, one old FOTL and one new Hanes:

 


keep in mind both t shirts are laundered and laid flat face up. the smaller modern shirt on top has a very very "square" hem, in fact the front and back line up almost perfectly when laid flat.

 

look at the hem of the larger old Hanes. see how there's like a "belly" cut into the front of the hem. when i first started finding these i thought that was a manufacturing mistake. but i kept seeing it again and again and now i realize that what they used to do is to make a "tail" in the back so when you bend over it stays tucked in. people used to tuck in their t shirts so thereyago. nowadays people wear em long and out of their pants, so they keep em square. probably cheaper to make it this way as well...

 

just to be clear my point is that if @cpmac7's shirt has that bowed hem in the front when it's laid flat, i would take it as old. the modern shirts that I've seen that use the old serging still cut em square afaik.

 

details, details, details...

Thanks to this little 'ol thread I recognized the vintage nature of this shirt right away. It probably has no resale value but I picked it up anyway. How do you all list obscure shirts like this and would you even pick it up? I did mostly because it was my first screen stars shirt. The logo is from a food service company. :happy:

 

 

 

 

eBay Linky for critique. :embar:

 

Oooh, more on Screen Stars: http://www.defunkd.com/blog/2010/01/30/screen-stars/

I'm also interested in how people list obscure tees.  Or whether or not to kop.  I've generally grabbed anything that is vintage and has a graphic.  But, most of these have sat on ebay for months before eventually selling, even ones that I thought would be hot.  On the other hand, I've had multiple SF'ers reach out to me about other tees that I figured were too obscure to be worth anything.  It's so hit or miss, I'm curious if anyone has guidance or strategy about it.  I guess it probably just comes down to perserverance and waiting for that one bidder...

 

Also, blank vintage tees: worth it or not?  I suspect I recently made a mistake...
