Here and there lately, folks have been mentioning some of the great T-shirts they picked up on tour and elsewhere. Several decades having passed in many cases, the shirts are no longer with us. Which ones did you wear till they fell apart, accidentally leave behind at the campground, give to your best friend, or otherwise part with, and now you'd really like to find another one?

Vintage T-Shirts

I do not know how many of you are on Instagram, but there is an account that collects and sells old vintage Dead shirts. The catch is that some can get very pricey (as expected when it comes to vintage Dead march, especially licensed items). His Instagram handle is @deadshaman.supply. I highly recommend checking him out if you are searching for something. His inventory is always updated frequently so luck may be in your favor. Here is the link to his easy shop for those who do not use Instagram.

Good luck on your search! I hope this helps!

An early 80's Ventura purchase

...it was a cool ink drawing of Alice standing in front of the Looking Glass, peering into it and the reflection was a smiling Uncle Sam beckoning her in with a waggly bony finger...I still have it but that was like 70 lbs ago and it doesn't fit...oh just remembered Alice's cat is standing next to her peering into the Looking Glass also and the Cheshire Cat's "Grin" is staring back at her

Spring 95

Hey guys! I wasn't lucky enough to see the boys play but they played in my hometown of Charlotte NC on March 22,23,24 and my Birthday is March 23rd. I was wondering if anybody might have any shirts from that show or any show from NC they might want to sell to a guy like myself. Thank you all in advance!!

Ace

I bought an Ace shirt at my first show September 8 1973 and wore it forever. It was a great quality silk screen and soft as a baby's butt.
Never saw another one. And could fit into the old one if I did still have it.
I have a Grateful Dead scuba tie die that I've had for 30 years and I still wear it. Never seen another of these either son I'm pretty careful with it. Only wear to shows now

Looking for a Link...

Speaking of T-Shirts, a couple of years ago I found a site that had archived almost all of the T-Shirts printed through the years, with dates, artist names, etc. Several years ago I was given two large boxes of new, original t-shirts that had been sitting in a friends attic for years. They date from 1985 to mid-nineties. He's developed a heart problem, and we're trying to list these for sale for him now.

I'd love to find the site again so that we can provide more information to potential buyers. GDAO has some of them, Band Shirt Archive seems to only have what they have currently for sale. Any help on this front would be appreciated.

really happy tee shirt

I remember one of my first shows, probably 82. I bought this incredibly cool tie dyed tee shirt with a print on the back of a flying pyramid (perhaps) with big toothy grin, one eyeball, really trippy. It was definitely created by someone on tour. I took it home and stared at it for hours, laughing. I think the front had a Jerry drawing.
I'd love to find that one. If that turns up I'd be astonished.

Please make a t-shirt with the current 2017 almanac art. Also, one with the RSD Shrine Art on it from last year would be great too! Thanks...
