    Still got your 80s/90s indie group T-shirts?

    If you've still got your T-shirts from the 80s/90s (using one to clean the car perhaps), you might be sitting on a gold mine. Nirvana are the 1016 gilt dial of the T-shirt world, but Guns'n'Roses and even My Bloody Valentine fetch eye-watering prices. Apparently English indie bands - Spacemen 3 and Slowdrive for example, are highly sought after in Japan.

    Wanna know how much? Look at the prices of these completed listings. Then check the bottom of the wardrobe. And keep your eyes open at the charity shop.

    That's eye watering, got me thinking and digging around in the bottom of the chest and found these 2 from another lifetime in the distant past. Different genre so maybe not collectible.

    Like with everything, if they are expensive and rare then that is because they are all trashed and lost in time.

    Then when you find a simular one it is worthless because it is not quite the one the collectors want

    I had all my Manics T shirts from 1992, some that fetch three figures. Around a year ago, I gave them to one of my musical friends, another huge Manics fan. I thought being 55 years old, wearing a "All Rock n Roll is homosexual" T shirt really doesn't work.

    Thing is, he gets me backstage, or side of stage at gigs & festivals, so by giving him my collection, guarantees me a place next year!

    I don't think I've ever had any band T-Shirts.

    They always seem a huge con at gigs you've already paid a shedload for.

    Shame I didn't buy any band T-shirts really.

    Just wondering if my Six Million Dollar Man T-shirt might be worth something.










    Almost certainly not.

    I'll swap it for my Street Hawk t-shirt if you like?
