Bulls "Bang Gang" T-Shirt: Something That Exists

by Ricky O'Donnell on February 4, 2010 at 2:50AM


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.

This shirt has been worn, but worn with love.  Copyright Shirt Xplosion 1995. It is now time to find it another home.  Some young baller needs this shirt. If you love hoops, this shirt is for you.  If you are a big slow white guy, this shirt is for you.  If you love the underdog, this shirt is for you.  If you dig large Australians and bearded Canadians (we're not judging), this shirt is for you.

This shirt could be expected to fetchs hundreds if not thousands of dollars in a sports-themed auction.  But you have one -- and only one -- chance to bid on it here and now on eBay.

Bid now.  Bid high.  Bid Long.  Bid fast.  Don't let this chance of a lifetime pass you by.

LONG LIVE THE BANG GANG!

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.

Get the best picture of this shirt that you can possibly find, copy it, play with it in photo-shop a bit ... then make a T-Shirt transfer for your printer and just iron it on.

Voila! (that's French for, "Behold!") You've got the rag for almost nothing.

I know that I've mentioned this before, but ... I've never understood the compulsion to purchase and wear clothing, bumper stickers, and other memorabilia emblazoned with the names or likenesses of movie stars, rock stars, athletes, teams, or politicians.

I just don't get it.

Never in my entire life, have I sought or bought so much as a button or a T-shirt proclaiming my allegiance to, or fondness of a single solitary celebrity or team. This need to "identify" must be coded into a gene that somehow managed to bypass me at conception.

I take that back ... I did in fact buy a shopping bag with a Chicago White Sox logo on it last year, but did so only because they were out of the generic cloth bags, I needed something sturdier than a plastic vessel for my groceries, and I didn't much care to be seen carrying a Chicago Cubs bag, which was my only other choice.

But this is besides the point. What I'm getting at here is that I'll actually go out of my way to avoid becoming unpaid advertising. Even if I really liked that $150 pair of Air Jordans and considered them worth the price (which they most certainly aren't) I would put them back on the shelf as soon as I saw his name on them.

It's reflexive.

Those Bulls shirts from the 90s were the best! Reminds me of the good times.

Wish i would of bought 2 of each (one being the size S i purchased as a kid & one a size L so i could of wore it now at days).

I spent all my money as a kid on Bulls paraphernalia along with starting line-ups and baseball cards. Now it goes to paying taxes and living expenses.... not a fair trade off at all.

"I spent all my money as a kid on Bulls paraphernalia along with starting line-ups and baseball cards."

And how did that work out for you?

With a collection like that you should be financially set for life.

I would like to use my poster machine to make a poster of this. "Somebody! Get my posta' machine!"

I still have all my starting line-ups and many trapper keepers, along with boxes & boxes of baseball cards stored away.

I won't be looking at all that for many years to come, probably when I move into a big place in where i can make a room dedicated to all my shit for all to be jealous of.

Perhaps this is one of the most interesting blogs that I have ever seen. Interesting article, Funny comment. Keep it up!
