Jerry's T-shirt For Sale



eil.com is selling "Jerry's T-shirt" - they say he wore it in Egypt and then signed it (and they have the photographic evidence). Here's the pitch:

GRATEFUL DEAD Jerry Garcia's Own T-Shirt (Rare Black T-shirt originally owned by Jerry Garcia and worn during the 'Egypt' live concert tour, September 1978. Jerry has also signed the front of the T-Shirt underneath the gold 'Dead' slogan. Additionally this comes complete with pictures showing Jerry wearing it - Be a 'Deadhead' for the day!!)
**Complete With Certificate Of Authenticity**

£ 395.00, USD 778.15, € 600.40



I don't know what's up with that "be a 'Deadhead' for a day" suggestion...but if you think wearing Jerry's old shirt is kinda gross, remember that it was his toilet that was up for auction last year!

A "v" neck on Jerry? And, the lettering isn't even close to the movie lettering.

No way Jerry would wear a shirt like this!!!! I have never seen a picture of him wearing a shirt w/the Dead's logo on it (even though this is not even a logo they ever used) and certainly never in a v-neck!! fake

A V-Neck for sale, NOT a V-Neck in the photo? Come-On...

I have an EAR for sale that officially listened to numerous Grateful Dead shows; It also heard Jerrys' words when I talked to him in Berkeley years ago...
No certificate of authenticity, but hang on, I'll whip one up real quick!

What would a Certificate of Authenticity be anyway? Who would authenticate it (and how)?

The original shirt Jerry wore had "DEAD" written in the same style of lettering as the "Grateful Dead Movie". This lettering is green on his shirt. This fake shirt looks like it was done at the kitchen table with a gold marking pen. It's sad that someone would try to sucker someone in with this.
