Band t-shirts
How many do you have?

How long do you keep them?

I have sooo many, and it's so hard to throw them out. They're like pictures in a picture album. Every once in a while I break them out and have a look and remember. But right now we're running out of closet space, and I'm afraid alot will have to go.

A friend of mine thinks I could make a mint on ebay. I'm not sure. I don't know if I could let them go. Is that weird?

Anyone else feel the same way?

Anyone else have a lot of them? Really really old ones?

Any of you ever sell old tour shirts and band shirts?

If you have any old Floyd tour (1970s) ones let me know...

I love band tees. I also love audio gear/software tees.

I think I just fully qualified for geek status.

Sorry, no Pink Floyd shirts.

Judging by the lack of responses, I guess I'm the only one.

Oh well.

I work at "Record & Tape Traders" one day a week to meet clients and promote albums. We actually buy band/tour shirts off of people's backs and sell them for dirt cheap ($4). I've seen some really cool vintage **** come thru. If you're ever in Maryland, stop on by, there's 11 locations or so.

I may throw out band shirts, but I always keep shirts I get for tours. I also save all my ticket stubs for every show I've ever been to, probably for the same reason. Mental snapshots, I guess.
