Wigan Tee Shirt On Jm

Recommended Posts

I've only just noticed this on the JM site.

 

A Wigan Casino Tee-Shirt from the early 70's.

 

I'd never seen or heard of these before. Anyone here had one, seen one, knew about them???

 

Any other Casino Wear other than Spencers and badges?

 

Is it a pre-Christmas wind-up?

I can see these being "booted" and on eBay ready for Santa to deliver :lol: . If folks are willing to produce/buy a repo-membership card, who knows :ohmy:

Are they dry yet ??

 

No, preserved with the water from the Casino toilets soaked into them. :)

 

Like those mammoths found in the ice after thousands of years...

If we could extract the DNA we might be able to recreate the old man who cleaned the bogs

Hi i may have, but doubt it, its a long time ago and my heads not what it used to be after years of nighters and soulnights, but no matter how much of a mess i was in i couldnt  see myself paying for that thing , sure i was given it free but you never know , could have been in such a mess that i actually paid for it!!!!!

Yes it was sold/ Freebie at Wigan I remember being given one and a Bag (still got the bag) by the manager as a lad I knew, John Rall, from the forces, used to be a doorman there and when we met up I got in for free, got bag and shirt along with patches. I was still wet behind the ears in them early days of the 70s. So getting the exec treatment was dead mint in those days!

 

the design is how I remember it, but to be honest over the years not many seem to recall the shirt or indeed the bag. I have posted pics of the bag in a previous post on here a few weeks/ months back.

 

As a piece of memorabilia it's just that. Cant see the point in being negative as regards to the item!

So getting this straight, an inferior quality cotton top, produced to be given away free to promote a nightclub 40 odd years ago is now 'an (sic) historic artifact (sic)'?

Ok...Thank you, Sothebys...

Previous one sold to a museum? Didn't realise there was a Museum of Worthless Old Tat.

Glad to see it has not met its reserve. If it fails to do so, I suggest the seller should be made to wear this foolish garment in public forever more....;-)

Just as a round-up of the thread - Tee Shirt finished at £186 :ohmy:

 

There is some talk in another thread that the Darrell Banks London Issue crashed the site :g:

 

I think we all know the item which created the REAL interest, enough to cause the damage :thumbsup:
