Grateful Dead Shirt : Vintage Original (Genuine / Authentic) : 1994 : USA Top Hat Uncle Sam! - with Doug Irwin Jerry Garcia! Red : X Large (XL) : Very-Rare!! USA Top-Hat Electric Guitar Skeleton' Shirt! - by the Legendary Philip Garris!!
- Playing a Doug Irwin Jerry Garcia! And, for that matter - all Fans of the Delightful Rock Art Masterpieces of Philip Garris too! And, of course - All!Lovers of the Electric Guitar!! The year was 1994, the 2nd to last ever Touring-Year of the Grateful Dead - and the Rock Art & G. Without any question at all - one of the Finest! Rock Artifacts from the 1990's Grateful Dead Era! This one truly stands the test of time any! I mean I'm not sure it's even possible to make a T-Shirt any cooler than this... Paying respect to the U. Uncle Sam Skeleton in his Top Hat - Red Roses all around... With this Uncle Sam Skeleton's " Axe " of choice being a Red! Doug Irwin body style & head stock Electric Guitar!!! One of the best-ever, at least in my opinion - though I don't think that I'm alone... I assume you are Well! Familiar with the 1974 Philip Garris G. Rock art Masterpiece " The Fiddler " - as it was selected for the Cover Art of the 1975 Grateful Dead " Come-Back / Return " Album release... Garris created " The Fiddler" design in 1974, and it was used immediately by the Grateful Dead in 1975 - and, not just on the Album... As it was used on T-Shirts! And all kinds of other assorted G. Turn the clock forward 20-Years... And Garris delivers this one!!! In the Grateful Dead Touring-Year of 1994! So, my assumption is that this was an Art movement to commemorate the Legendary!
75 Fiddler design - as in this period, Garris actually delivered three (3) designs... A re-issue of the 1974/75 " The Fiddler ", another new design " Bertha & The Golden Bear " (1995)... A USA Top Hat Uncle Sam Skeleton & Roses - Playing a Doug Irwin style Electric Guitar!!! So yes, 20-Years later - and Philip Garris is still!
Delivering Rock Art of Legendary! For the Good Ol' Grateful Dead!!!
I mean hey, at the end of 1994 & 1995 for the Grateful Dead - times became a little bit difficult... But, as I'll distinctly never-ever forget at the time - there were' fresh' Art designs coming out at this magnitude & importance for the Grateful Dead.That these were still indeed very-special times... For the Band, for the Artists, and for the loyal Dead Fans!
And, here we are now close to 30-Years! My goodness - I was right. In my personal opinion, this'94 Garris design here - stands right up there at the Top! I believe this'94 Shirt was only issued on a Black Shirt, and on this way-cool Dead Red!
Providing, as the photos very-well show - a nothing short of Stellar! Background & contrast for this Amazing! And, without question - One of the Best!!! Tag Size / Brand : Extra Large (X-Large / XL) / Cronies (100% Cotton / Made In USA) Pit-to-Pit = 25" Length = 28" As this is a vintage collectible shirt - here are the issues that stand out to my eye upon very close inspection.
Multiple small holes on collar area, front bottom seam & arms seams (please see photos/close-up photos). Stains on shirt (please see photos/close-up photos). Cracking of design image emblems and fading of shirt material fabric dyes (please see photos/close-up photos).Please see all photos provided...
