Vintage Apple PowerMac t-shirt with We Will Rock You graphics

This is an Apple Computer Power Macintosh software development team T-shirt. The back has the wild graphics. The front says "Power Macintosh" and "We Will Rock You" with 3 symbols representing code names for the first 3 PowerMac computers.

This shirt is featured on page 22 of the Apple T-shirt Book. The Rock n' Roll theme shirts were given to the project development teams at sucessive communication meetings. The cheetah represents Sheila Brady, the "high energy" manager of the PowerPC operations and the checkered flag is the completion of the project as the new computer starts rolling off the assembly line. Cheetah eventually became the first of the next gen cat named OS X operating systems, then Puma, then Jaguar and the rest is history.

This highly collectible shirt is an Oneita Power-T size Large made in the USA of 100% pre-shrunk cotton in quite good but obviously washed condition. The screened graphics are bright, crisp and uncracked. This spectacular shirt personifies the use of graphic design by Apple departments to tell the Apple world "what cool projects you've done." It is priced for the comprehensive Macintosh collector at $145 plus postage. KootenayMac has several shirts from the Apple T-Shirt Book for sale, including another in this series with similar graphics - click the labels below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel
