Grateful Dead Shirt : Vintage Original (Genuine / Authentic) : 1993 : Summer Tour'93! - Summer'93 Tour Tee!!'93 Grateful Dead Merchandise, Inc. - The River Diving Swimming Skeleton!!!Just like Bobby Weir once said during Lovelight Greek'86! Well Dead Fans, here indeed is The! (Official GDM) Grateful Dead Shirt made for the 1993 Summer Tour!!!
Hard - to believe it is now over 30-Years-Ago!! But, totally true - Wow! And to me at least, the fantastic graphics on this one just say " Summertime " all over it. After all, there is nothing quite-like sporting some Lightning-Bolt Board shorts, turning your Cap backwards, grabbing your Beverage of choice! And just Diving Right In - Head First!And to boot, you can even lose your Wallet, Keys & Change too! During all of this excitement.
Hey, even if the sign-posted does say No Swimmin'! Our fellow Deadhead Skeleton-friend has some mighty-nice diving form here too, wouldn't you say? One of the coolest, uniquest, rarest & even' Gooniest' Dead Shirts I ever saw during my touring days - agreed??
And even made' Officially' by GDM!! Well, on to more serious Dead-chat... This was indeed one-fine Tour in'93, in my opinion. I caught the 2 RFK shows, and was impressed with how truly-hearty the Boys looked - and how much they still had to give at the end of this quite-long' 1st half' of the heavily-toured 1993. I'll never forget the bouncy Aiko, nor the solid China > Rider from these D.I also saw Shoreline & Expo prior, and was almost-certain those shows would be hard to top obviously... But I was pleasantly surprised indeed! 93 Expo, still obviously being Late-Legendary Live Grateful Dead!
- for all of the various reasons you can hear on the tapes! To the one & only Mighty Autzen Stadium!Were the next Shows for me, and as we all know - Whoa! - did those shows ever speak for themselves. Though I may be in the minority, I personally feel that'93 was possibly the very best Grateful Dead overall... After Brent's untimely passing after Summer Tour'90. They got back to the basics i. One Keyboard-Player , like the Grateful Dead should be. I liked Vince myself, and felt he definitely had both the chops & energy to carry the weight, and the load.
Also, this was a little period of Jerry-resurgence, where he appeared really-happy, quite-healthy & clearly appeared to be taking nice care of himself. This, I first noticed at the'93 Mardi Gras run in Oakland in February - pretty exciting! So very sweet to see...
So yep, here is " The "'93 Summer G. Shirt - the Sweet Summertime...
River-Diving Swimming Skeleton GDM Tour Tee!! Definitely one of the very coolest-designed G.
Shirts on the'93 East Coast Summer Tour! As they just don't make them quit-like' This! & Best of Luck too with your Diving! - to find those Keys!! Grateful Dead Summer Tour'93!!!!
Tag Size / Brand : Extra Large (X-Large / XL) / Fruit of the Loom 100% Cotton Preshrunk / Made In U. Pit-to-Pit = 24" Length = 31" As this is a used vintage shirt showing significant signs of use and wear - here are the issues that stand out to my eye upon very close inspection : >>> fraying of the collar (please see photos/close-up photos).
>>> soiling/staining throughout the shirt (please see photos/close-up photos). >>> fading of the design (please see photos/close-up photos).
