Hey! Looking for some help! Bought a t-shirt at a second hand market and wondering if it's rare/collectible? Can't find anything about this particular design online. Copyright says 1968. Any information anyone has would be much appreciated! Thank you!!

Not vintage. The copyright date refers to the song which is being quoted, not the t-shirt.

Was that shirt a tie-in with Paul's Russian album? If so, that'd date it to 1989 or thereabouts.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

If it is from that, then its kinda vintage now, but I don't think they would get much off it.

I would venture a guess that's it's an unauthorized print, probably about 10 years old.  These things get sold like crazy on the streets outside of concert venues.  I like the design, but if it were a piece of official McCartney merchandise it would be branded in some visible manner, and certainly wouldn't have a tank and the hammer & sickle on it.

It's nice though.  Wear it with pride.

I'm aware that the copyright only refers to the song being quoted, just thought it might be helpful info. I can't find anything like it online, the manufacturer is SOGO. The song is from the White Album. I love the shirt and will keep it anyways but just wanted some further info on it. Thanks!
