Shirts all throughout the 1980's, dating back to'80 - and maybe even prior? One thing is for certain - you indeed know a " Mikio " when you see one. I don't know who out there caught the 1991 Giants stadium Shows? You were not only part of some seriously quality Live Grateful Dead at those Shows, but you also might have seen yourself on T. As live-segments from these two shows were used in a Nationally Broadcast " Rainforest Special " which included some heavy duty Dead!
Eyes of the World - Saint of Circumstance, etc.. And this broadcast (which aired after the Shows), also included some serious (yet, still totally hilarious) interview footage with the Band! Point being, this was a cause that the band was extremely serious about helping, and spreading awareness among Dead Fans, and beyond however they could. And obviously, through the Rex Foundation.
With the Cal Expo dates on the backside, instead. So, this one here is indeed the 1st generation " Vintage-Original ", and it is even the Long-Sleeved version too... See anymore here-today -- close to 35-Years!
