: 2003 (1988/2003) Grateful Dead Merchandising, Inc. Issue : 1988 GDM Art Design!
Of' Grateful Dead Movie' Fame!! - just' Chargin' His Cartoon Chopper'! As here offered here is the Very-Rare! 2003 Issued version of the Grateful Dead 1988 Summer Tour GDM Classic! And, while the 1988 Grateful Dead Summer Tour Shirt was made only " Venue-Specific " for the July 29, 30 & 31, 1988 (7/29/88 - 7/30/88 - 7/31/88) run of G.
Shows at the Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, CA -- this very-rare'03 version was actually' changed' from the'88 original version... With the Tour Dates omitted! So, quite the opportunity for certain for any Dead Fans out there who just Loved! Movie / USA Uncle Sam Skeleton Shirt Design...But, that didn't catch the Laguna Seca'88 Shows! Genuine / Authentic 2003 Issue by GDM, which really was a " re-creation " and alteration of the Laguna Seca'88 Original! I mean hey, let's face it...
Some Fans might love a Dead Shirt' design' - but, they don't want to Rock a Shirt out in public promoting a Show that they didn't actually go to see. You know - and, for a fine example : You! Are sitting at the bar, having a pint of beer...
And a (very) pretty girl walks up to you like... A' total' California Girl through & through and she says... Hey Man, I went to that Dead Show at Laguna Seca...Something like " the wrong " answer of --- Nope, but I'm just wearing the Shirt. A bummer so-easily avoided, right?
My point being, this was such an Awesome! Dead Shirt design when it originally debuted in'88 - to the point that it Really! Should have been made also in a " Non " Venue-Specific version also.
Maybe too just for the " 1988 Summer Tour " alone, or maybe too - just like this... " Generic " version - with All! Of the Killer designs in place, but just no Show Dates. And, I'm pretty much sure GDM was thinking just like me on this notion, because here in Finally!And, it only took 15-Years! But, the important thing is that it did happen... But, no need for you to worry anymore on getting this-one in your cherished Rock & Roll! Size " Large " is your size - which, we are both hoping so... Because this Shirt needs Rocked! Out in public, and at the next Show! That you go and see.
You had better get ready for the Nice Shirt!!! Compliments, because believe me - they Will! Be coming in with this one. An' early' Fruit Of The Loom " Lofteez " Issue - that is in way-nice shape - " Built To Last " - and is just 100% completely ready to Rock! Too - just like Good Ol' Uncle Sam Skeleton in the Legendary!Tag Size / Brand : Large (L) / Fruit of the Loom - Lofteez (100% Cotton Preshrunk) Pit-to-Pit = 21" Length = 30" As this is a used collectible shirt - here are the only issues that stand out to my eye upon very close inspection : >>> some small light stains on shirt front & back sides (please see photos/close-up photos). >>> a small dark stain mark (line) on the right sleeve - located on the outer edge, on top of the seam area (please see photos/close-up photo #10).
