Here and there lately, folks have been mentioning some of the great T-shirts they picked up on tour and elsewhere. Several decades having passed in many cases, the shirts are no longer with us. Which ones did you wear till they fell apart, accidentally leave behind at the campground, give to your best friend, or otherwise part with, and now you'd really like to find another one?

Missing a few!

I think of them often-where did they go?? The old long sleeve Deadercise shirt with the dancing skeleton wearing sneakers,wearing it in my avatar, loved that shirt as well as a Mardi Gras shirt, don't remember the year, that had a nice Mask and ribbons on it-beautiful artwork. The closing of Winterland show shirt with the blue rose, I later modified mine and added the show dates from Aug. 4-5 1979 just cuz those shows really blew me away. They were testing a new sound design and I thought the ceiling was going to cave in on the Oakland Aud. There was a terrific earthquake on our way home the following morning in Gilroy as I remember. So many have worn out or disappeared over the years, left in other folks houses, vans, busses, where are they now. I still have a few -Most proud of is the show shirt from Brent's first show at Spartan Stadium 4-22-79.

Skeleton on skis

My buddy had that shirt. We were talking maybe 5 or 7 years ago and he mentioned that he wished he would have kept that one. I remember it. Under the skis were bands of color. That skeleton was surely shredding!!

What was the shirt that Mickey Hart was wearing? It looked cool as hell, a skeleton on skis.

Grateful Express

The font was the same as the old Federal Express from the 80's but instead read "Grateful Express...when you absolutely positively have to be there every night"
