    Most Expensive VH T-Shirt Ever!!!!!

    I just found the coolest vintage T shop in Tokyo! As I was walking past I looked in thinking it was just a normal shop, but then I saw this T-shirt on a mannequin and could see the word Halen with a picture of DLR. I grabbed my wife and ran in to check it out. Turns out it was an original from the Diver Down tour, long sleeve, cool pics on front and back and my wife says "Oh you've got to buy it!" then she sees the price and says "Uh, maybe not!" Yen26,000! Which is approx US$260!!!! Holy crap! As reality sunk in and we left for lunch I thought that I had to go back and have another look so after lunch I purchased, for $85 a 1980 Invasion Tour shirt in pretty damn good condition! Looks very cool, even on me! Classic VH symbol on front and simply says Van Halen on the back. They had loads of cool stuff from AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, even that badass Ted Nugent!!!!

    Tokyo - fuck it's a weird city!!!!!!!

    Yeah, I kind of agree, but I had never seen it before and it was in absolute mint condition. Plus everything is fucking expensive over here!

    No harm, no foul!

    There was a Martian's invasion, they were harvesting linkers' posts.

    And Tokyo is really damn expencive city. I've heard from a friend of mine that a month pass to a subway costs over $300 or something, but they get extra high wages to cover that.
    Any chances to post a pic of your T-Shirt?

    Default 1980 Invasion shirt

    Wow, if it's the same one I still have only paid $15.00 in 80. Mine is black, short sleeved. The classic VH on the front is brown, with 1980 Invasion written across the top and Van Halen on the back. Wore it to Hershey last year to the show. Glad you found one.

    That's Hollywood for ya, let the ones that have been around 15 minutes get a star and the ones that have been around 30 + years never even get considered for a star.
