Vintage tees are very cool. So cool, in fact, that you see reproductions all over the place from Lucky Brand to Walmart. Genuine vintage tee shirts can sometimes be worth a small fortune if they contain a rare logo, or if they were received at a small event. On the Scavenger Life podcast, professional pickers Jay and Ryanne share that they regularly list rare vintage tees for well over $100, and they sell. There was even one tee from the 1990 Reading Music Festival in England someone listed on Etsy for $14,000.
Obviously, not every old tee is going to sell for $100 or more. Keep in mind that you need to examine the shirt very carefully. Look for stains or holes. If the shirt is still in good shape, disclose the imperfections and let the customer know in the description. For some people, a tiny hole is enough for them to throw a shirt away. Or, if they find it when the shirt arrives, request a refund. For others, they won’t care. They just need to be told ahead of time.
