Macintosh "The Power To Crush The Other Kids" sleeveless shirt

This is a 2nd generation version of the NBC Saturday Night Live commercial skit that parodies the Macintosh ad. It is a gray sleeveless size Large Fruit of the Loom HEAVY brand made in the USA of 100% preshrunk cotton.

The design is descibed on page 184 of the Apple T-Shirts Book and is the sanctioned Apple registered trademark that was sold at the San Francisco Macworld in 1996 and then at the original Apple Company Store. I do not know where the sleeveless version first appeared or whether this is a one-off for an Apple evangelist.

This shirt is in very good condition with some signs of washing on the screened Apple logo which remains quite colorful. The two small ® marks are still visible and the text is crisp. If sleeveless is not your cup of T, it could be cropped and framed as a classic SNL memento. It is priced at $55 with mailing available at cost of postage. There is also a 1st gen sleeved version and a very rare long sleeve black version available - click the labels below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Nov '14 update: there is a brand new old stock 2nd gen short sleeve and long sleeve (with ® on both the Macintosh and the rainbow Apple) they are priced at $85 and $95 respectively
