People have been known to spend large amounts of money for vintage t-shirts before, but a recent purchase blew all other records out of the water. The item in question is an old Led Zeppelin
t-shirt that served as a backstage pass for one of the band's 1979 concerts, and according to Blabbermouth.net
it was sold on eBay by Kyle Emantinger
of Stormcrow Vintage for a staggering $10,000.
"When I got the sale notification, my jaw hit the floor
", Ermatinger said. "Given this shirt may be one of the only ones in existence, the price tag is completely justifiable. It's a rock relic, beyond rare. Admittedly, I still frequently pinch myself.
Ermatinger was lucky enough to meet the family that originally created the limited edition t-shirts, and managed to purchase one for $123.
"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
", he claimed.
The person who bought the shirt is remaining anonymous and refuses to comment.
