September 17, 1984

"I Was There" t-shirt commemorating Reggie Jackson's 500th home run. (He was playing for the Angels, at Anaheim Stadium, and hit it off Bud Black of the Royals.)

It still fits and is in great shape since I save it for special occasions.

Currently wearing a 1990 champions lacrosse tee from the athletic training department of my alma mater.

My 1992 Secret Service presidential campaign is probably the 2nd oldest.

But I have a lot of old rowing tees that I purchased while at various regattas.

I have a shirt saying "Red Zinger Bicycle Classic, Boulder, Colorado, 1985" with a picture of a turtle riding a tricycle and drinking herbal tea. I bought it from a vendor at the one of the annual bicycling conventions that the League of American Bicyclists used to have . Later, Coors Beer took over the Red Zinger event.

I don't know what the quality is now but those earlier ones were really good sturdy shirts. My earliest is from 1983 and DH has a whole drawer full of them from different years. The last is from the 50th Anniversary.

I told him if he's ever going to get any use out of them it's probably time to start wearing them. He'd look pretty silly in a wheel chair going, "Vroom, vroom."

The oldest souvenir tee shirt I have is from 2007 (hot-air balloon ride) and the oldest regular tee-shirts I still wear are also from 2007, bought for that same vacation.

The oldest article of clothing I still have is a capilene base layer bought in 1989--I still use it now and then!

I have concert t-shirts that are 30-35 years old, don't wear them but hang on to them as part of my rock memorabilia collection, they may be worth something someday.

I don't have any old T-shirts, but I can tell you a funny story about an old shirt I bought in high school. I bought it in 1965 or thereabouts, and I finally donated it to the Goodwill in 2006. Before I donated it, I still wore it once in a while. It was still in good shape.
