a collection of 4 rare Macworld t-shirts

At left is a vintage 1989 Apple MacWorld Expo/Boston Conference Faculty T-shirt. It is in very good condition, obviously washed, but only a couple of times and it has a new looking tag. It is a size XL Made in the USA of 100% cotton by Hanes Beefy-T. It has awesome wrap around graphics that are very detailed and crisp.

The original owner had this to say about it: "I was a speaker at the 1989 MacWorld show in Boston where I got this t-shirt. Good luck finding another one of these!" Price is $55. The signature on the comic illustration appears to be Bill Morrison.

Top center is a rare MacWorld size small t-shirt with "In Mac We Trust" on the front and an American flag over on the back so it predates the Macworld Conference & Expo. It is a brand new shirt - never washed, never worn - it is priced at $35

Bottom center is a black size large Macworld T-shirt. It is has MACWORLD '94 with a fractal graphic and Washington D.C. on the front. This shirt is not new, having been washed but the screened graphics are bright, crisp and un-cracked. It is a Fruit of the Loom 100% cotton shirt made in the USA and the price is $25.

The black shirt on the right is a Mac The Knife, MTK : Y2K : NYC short sleeve t-shirt. This is the MacWeek Rumors column icon and is the same shark design as shown on page 184 of the Apple T-Shirts book. This may be one of the few remaining survivors of the "Mac The Knife parties thrown by MacWeek on the Tuesday before each Macworld Expo."

It has been washed once or twice but looks brand new. "Mac" - the silk screened Shark graphic - and the text are mint. Made by Fruit of the Loom 100% Heavy pre-shrunk cotton and it is Made in Canada! How rare is that?

The size is XL and the color is black. The Shark is on the front and the Mac the Knife Y2K NYC sponsors are on the back. It also has MWNY 07.20.2000 on the back. It extremely rare and is priced at $175 for the dedicated Apple collector.
