Talk about a rockin’ t-shirt.
A Grateful Dead shirt from the band’s original merchandise was just auctioned off for a record-breaking price. The 1967 shirt sold at Sotheby’s for $17,640 — setting a new world record for the most money spent on a vintage rock shirt.
The previous record was set in 2011 when a Led Zepplin t-shirt was sold for $10,000.
The Grateful Dead shirt was designed by Allan ‘Gut’ Terk, a Hells Angel and graphic artist who was a prominent figure in California’s counterculture movement in the 1960s.
Do you have a rock t-shirt that you swear you will never get rid of?
Slept in my Grateful Dead t shirt and when I woke up, I noticed a touch of gray in my hair.
