Ok...here they are. A lot of you showed interest in this design from the 80s so I printed up some shirts. And I made another shirt from a picture of my brother at La Mesa Skate Park in 1979. These are hand screened shirts with a pocket logo on the front and the graphic on the back just like in the 80s. Shirts are $20 a piece or $30 for both. DM me if you want some. Thanks ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป
