1990 GDM Issued' Black' Tee - Commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Grateful Dead!!! The 20th Anniversary of American Beauty!!! Is a Grateful Dead Rock & Roll Shirt!
90 GDM Issued Grateful Dead XXV... 25th Anniversary Shirt - which also highlights the rightful-respect of their Magnificent!& Beyond-Classic 1970 Studio Album Masterpiece! & most widely-recognizable Grateful Dead Albums of all-time... Which dug nicely in to both the Electric & Acoustic depths of Grateful Dead Music. Grateful Dead Album Covers of all-time, designed by the Mouse-Kelley Studios - featuring an amazingly-artistic' Ambigram' wording on the image...
Either " American Beauty " or -- " American Reality " - depending naturally, on how you choose to see it. With of course, a Red Rose! Which on this Shirt - is really taken to the next-level, with the black background to highlight this image. There were actually a' Series' of these Grateful Dead Steal Your Face!XXV Shirts made for the 1990 Touring-Year, which featured the exact-same back side design on all, with a variety of different images on the front side. Shirts were issued in' Black' only, and this-one pretty much rose to the top in popularity above all the rest. With, naturally - the " Wall Of Sound " design image probably being a near equal favorite to the Dead Fan Faithful. Though, what is really just so-neat about this " American Beauty " design - is that is just meant so-much at the time, as the Band was headed like a' Live' Train-running-down-the-Track! At the back end of the Massive!
And while all of the different " XXV " versions commemorated the 25th Anniversary of the Grateful Dead - this one also recognized " American Beauty " in its 20th-Year! Of existence & influence to the Music World. Is always in the eye of the beholder, but in a lot of ways... You could easily argue that this is one of the neatest & most-meaningful Grateful Dead Shirts of the then' Modern' 1990's Grateful Dead Era - which obviously now is a few more decades behind us...
A serious-piece of Grateful Dead! Tag Size / Brand : Extra Large (X-Large / XL) / Oneita Power T (Pre-Shrunk 100% Cotton) Pit-to-Pit = 24" Length = 28" As this is a lightly used vintage collectible shirt - here are the only issues that stand out to my eye upon very close inspection : >>> one undone inside front bottom seam - approximately 2 long (please see photos/close-up photo #11).>>> light cracking of design emblem images (please see photos/close-up photos). >>> very light fading of shirt material fabric (please see photos/close-up photos). >>> slightly off centered front design emblem image - slightly towards left side when wearing (please see photos/close-up photos).
