Now Kristina (the saleswoman in this case) has charged a very high price for a t-shirt, especially one that was made in 1991. For context, Harley davidson has been around for over a century at this point, so “vintage” in this context is a rather vague description. Still, it’s three decades of Harley history in a shirt, so it could have been worth the money. Sadly, Big Hoss expert âVintage Guruâ Anthony Terranova pointed out a few reasons why it’s just not that valuable as a coin.
For starters, the shirt wasn’t the oldest piece of Harley merch. Additionally, it was made after Harley-Davidson gave the license to sell its products to 3D Emblem, which had previously done a murder on unofficial Harley shirts at the time. While the shirt was still made by 3D Emblem, the Harley-Davidson tag on the collar identifies it as a product made long after the company received Harley’s blessing. In other words, since this is an official Harley-Davidson shirt, it is considerably easier to find than one of 3D Emblem’s pirated parts.
In the end, Terranova valued the shirt at just $ 150. And, in usual “Pawn Stars” fashion, that price has been drastically reduced so the store can still make a profit on the item. Big Hoss gave Kristina a maximum bid of $ 50. She declined the offer, which unfortunately meant the deal turned into a big failure for Big Hoss.
