Bulls "Bang Gang" T-Shirt: Something That Exists
This is a real shirt.
Perhaps even more impressively: it appears this shirt was once mass produced. It was probably sold at Montgomery Ward, maybe even Venture. There was probably a time when you could walk into the currently defunct department store of your choice, and pick up your very own "Bang Gang" t-shirt. There are probably hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of these floating around in closets and thrift stores all around the Chicagoland area.
This amazes me.
For 10 or 20, maybe even 30 doll hairs, I would proudly buy this shirt. But can you guess how much this shirt is currently going for on the eBayz? $76!
At first I bet you're thinking "Man, that's a lot of dough for a t-shirt", which is fair point. But here's my counterpoint: is $76 really a lot of money for THE BEST T-SHIRT EVER, which, by the way, this most definitely is.
Alas: the auction on this shirt goes until February 7. When the auction is over, this shirt will probably sell for more than Honus Wagner's rookie card. I think that's fair.
If you're smart and cool, you don't need to be convinced that buying this shirt would be a great idea, but if you do need to be convinced that buying this shirt would be a great idea, here's the eBay seller's sales pitch.
I feel like I should be running up the stairs at a football stadium right now, a la Walter Payton. I am so motivated to live life.
Also: "Bang Gang"? What? Did people actually call Wennington-Longley-Perdue that? If not, they should have.
