Its the largest sum that has ever been paid for an ‘ordinary t-shirt’. Before I get pelted with abuses and rocks from Zeppelin fans, by ordinary I simply mean not being studded with precious metals or stones. Rather its a rare vintage 1979 Led Zeppelin Tee that has been sold for this stupendous price on eBay.
The item was sold by Kyle Ermatinger of Stormcrow Vintage, one of the top online destinations for sought-after authentic vintage tees.
As the most scarce Led Zeppelin t-shirt ever produced, the article was printed in limited quantity as a unique way to replace conventional backstage passes for one of the band’s historic 1979 Knebworth House concerts. Ermatinger (the seller) acquired the item for $123 (USD) from the family who ran the shop that screen-printed the original shirts. “At the time, I thought I may have overpaid, until I got back home, looked it up online and noticed it was ranked #1 as the rarest Zeppelin t-shirt.”
While there have been other tees that have asked for higher prices, they hve never been sold. So this officially becomes the most expensive t-shirt in the world!
The anonymous buyer is from Australia and confessed to being a huge Led Zeppelin fan.
