this article was on HU

If it’s authentic, then, yes, it does predate any shirts listed by the freaks over at SPFreaks.com; however, that it’s not already listed by those freaks makes me wonder whether it’s authentic.[/quote:1xqqmhys]

damn!
that’s totally way too expensive, even for this item-
however: the shirt seems to be real-
i.e.: there WERE some (very very very few) shirt made then, I recall from research I did into the early stuff and mail-conversations with Mike (Limited Potential) and Barry (Halo)…
One could easily fake one, but I saw one before and it looked exactly like this one—
Condition seems to be awesome too-
Still: way too much money, but cool item ;)

i bet it won’t sell. most pumpkinheads aren’t billionaires and they’re asking quite a shitload for a shirt.

it’s still way over priced-
still-
this shirt afaik IS legit—-
i’d have to go thru a lot of emails!
archived in txt-files and in a paper archive here in my office-
BUT-
i KNOW for sure someone told me/mailed me/told me by phone back in my die-hard researching days there WERE shirts made to accompany this release and there were VERY few out there and I recall having seen one once on ebay (just like I have the rag paper test press sleeve archived somewhere from an auction way back when, but just can’t find out where any longer…) ….
the thing is legit and real—
damned thing is just way over priced…
that’s all-
still- this one with a proper provenance would mean way more to me than a LiD cassette which Barry is well able to churn out even today, way past the original press run…
not to say he does so, but this IS the real design as I’ve seen before and verified then way back when with Mike and others… so…
pity it’s over priced ;)

this person should start the bid real low and let the fans fight it out. then he might actually make some good cash.

agreed-
he could even put a reserve on it-
as it is rare shirt-
this doesn’t make any sense at this price-

yeah, he should definitely do something like that. it would sell probably. plus its had some exposure on HU were people who would be interested in something like it go.
