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!!DSC02337_zpse9776f12.jpgImage Enlarger

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!"

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.

 

E is for 'Ergent'.

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!
