Olympic Hopeful Doesn’t Make Cut, Gets T-Shirt Instead

Someone kept this for over 20 years. How many shirts have you kept for more than 5?

There isn’t really anything flashy about this 3/4 sleeve, “USA” T-shirt. What’s really amazing about it is that it still has the price tag on it.

$7.97 would have bought you a full tank of gas in 1985

For all I know, some Olympic hopeful bought this and didn’t make the cut for the Olympic team and it sat in his or her closet until there was a spring cleaning and it was just thrown in the “thrift store” pile.

Or it could have been a Christmas gift by the Russian Grandma who was trying to endear herself to the American slave traders that adopted her instead of feeding her to their pet lion. Then they fed her to the pet lion because this shirt is a cotton blend, not 100% polyester like they liked.

Or it just a shirt someone didn’t realize was a vintage item and just gave it away.

Now, you can buyΒ it.
