Rare Apple Powerbook Engineering Project Team T-Shirt

This t-shirt was made for Apple's CPU Development Team when the Macintosh Portable reached its design verification test (DVT) milestone. Steve Jobs had always envisioned a notebook-sized computer and the Portable predates the iPad by 20 years. These 1989 Apple employee t-shirts were printed in very small quantities and handed out to internal Apple engineering staff and project team members only. This shirt was never offered for sale and is a rare part of Apple history. It is shown on page 28 of the Apple T-Shirts Book. The dinosaur head shows a profile of the Portable.

This shirt is new and has never been worn or washed and is from the collection of a 20 year Apple employee. It is a size Large Super Hi-Cru made in the USA of 100% cotton by Steadman. The dinosaur graphics are silkscreened on the back and CPU Development Team and an Apple is on the front left chest. It is in mint condition and is priced at $75 with postage at cost.
