The one with a picture of Jerry's face surrounded by the classic Grateful Dead on the front and the two dates of the shows with a frog jumping off the shirt on the back. I believe it was two days of GD and Santana. Camping too.

Garcia's Face

It was a v neck light green tee with an Escher- ish black rendering of Jerry's face. Upon closer inspection, his face is made up of endless imagery; roses, bones, naked people, Humpty Dumpty, suns, moons, animals, wizards, etc. Gorgeous! Procured in Buffalo 79, I think. Still have, but died a natural death to time. Best I ever had.
Honorable mention to a pocket tee says Alpine Valley. On back 4 large bears with goggles and skis with "I Spent Alittle Time On The Mountain" - worn to shreds.
Both too fragile for Chicago...

When they released the Ace LP, there was an offer inside to buy the cover design on a tee shirt. This was in 72 when $5.00 was serious moolah, so I passed and have regretted it ever since. I've looked in all (I believe) of the usual places and have never seen it. Any help would be appreciated.

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.
