    Default Van Halen 1984 tour mascot Hammerman

    Sorry mods if this is in the wrong spot. Lump it where you will and accept my humble apologies.
    Hi All, Just a quick question. I had the VH 1984 eagle/globe world tour t-shirt brought back to Australia by a mate who saw the Portland Oregon show (Man was I jealous when i got THAT letter in the mail) and it had the 'hammerman' on the back. After getting married my wife thought it was an 'old and neglected' t-shirt and threw it out without my knowledge (divorce on the spot did cross my mind........kidding............not!!! The new version of the shirt from VH Store does not have it and can't get it (I checked) because they don't have the rights to the image. Does anyone know how I can get that t-shirt or that image? I think it is extremely iconic to that particular tour and time frame(for nostalgia reasons) and would love to get my hands on it again. I did see somewhere that the image was 'borrowed'for the tour. Where from? Do they have t-shirts? Iron on transfers (remember those) to add to the available t-shirt? Any help would be most helpful.
    Cheers

    From the opening sound...akin to a WWII bomber rolling overhead... through to 26 1/2 years later there has been barely a misstep by the man who (to use a cliche) redefined the way the guitar was to be played and the incredible sounds it could make. For all new chapters beyond this point it is all cherries and cream.

    Just check ebay a lot. They pop up on there all the time. Some people try to get upwards of $100 for them but I got one a few years back for $35.00 to replace the one I got at the show that is too small now.

    Yeah, keep checking eBay. It's Western Exterminators logo, but don't know if they sell shirts of it.

    I wrote to western exterminator years ago asking if I could buy a shirt with their mascot on it and they were beyond cool and just sent me one for free.
