vintage Macintosh '87 Open Mac license plate T-shirt
This is a vintage Macintosh II Open Mac license plate T-shirt. It has never been worn or washed. It is featured on page 14 and on the back cover of the Apple T-Shirts Book. Jean-Louis Gassee was in conflict with Steve Jobs on his views about building an open architecture computer. Jobs termed early Macs "appliances" and was fired soon after. Gassee had a license place made for his company car as his statement. The shirt was actually made in June '86 as the plate would expire the next year. The Macintosh II was created as the first open system Mac.
The license plate is screened on both the from and back. The letters are raised noticeably as they would be on an real plate. This is a size Large made in China of 100% cotton and has no brand name on it. It is priced for the discerning collector of Apple history at $145 plus insured mailing at cost of postage. There is a license plate collection available as well, click the license label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel
