Grateful Dead / Griffin Shirt! Grateful Dead Fans, and those who Love, Collect & Live-For! The " Art Masterpieces " of the Late / Great! Well, here offered is Most-Definitely! If you were on Dead Tour in 1990, then I will be restating the obvious here, but hey - it's always nice to leave no stone unturned, right?
" Top-Hat Skeleton " was the design selected for the Cover of the Official Grateful Dead 1990 Tour' Book' Program! If you had one of these, then you will likely give a thumbs-up!
As this nice-thick Tour-Book offered an Excellent! Selection of writing, photos, what's happening - in the present, and what's happened in the G. And more & more photos!
Grate-ones too, may I add. But, it's done even easier when it's got a Griff!
I myself really-dig this one, as it reminds me of those times when you would be inside some venue, in some state, on some Tour! And when looking one way, you'd see a' Spinner' in the Breezeway, dressed in dresses, dyes, Birks, and maybe even dreads! -- then, you take one look the other way - and there are a couple folks standing in suits, ties - and yes, I even remember seeing Tuxedos!!! Among many things wonderful about a Dead Show, is just the way that it would draw in the Masses!From all-different walks of life, and everyone could leave their hang-ups on the other side of the turnstiles... And could just get down & boogie Together!! Enjoying some Good Ol' Grateful Dead Rock'n Roll, Psychedelic Rock, a little Drums! That's what that one reminds me of - that guy in the Tux!
Getting ready to find his seat, or spot on the rail! - so ready, to get down & do some much needed Dancin'! Hey, the more Skeletons - the Better!
This is a Lightly Barely! Tag Size / Brand : Large (L) / Cronies (100% Cotton) Pit-to-Pit = 22" Length = 27" As this is a lightly used, and very-well taken care of shirt - here are the only issues that stand out to my eye upon very close inspection : >>> some very light cracking of the shirt design (please see photos/close-up photos). >>> some light fading of the shirt material, mostly on the sleeves - near the seam areas (please see photos/close-up photos). Please see all photos provided..
