    Great collection! I also have a ton of VH shirts. But some of them are getting holes in them because they are getting old.

    I like the girl from the 20's and the Hawaiian girl shirts the best in your collection. I like when they get more creative with their shirts, I get tired of shirts with just VH symbols over and over.

    Well done video.

    I have several of those shirts. If I could find a reprint of the Sheep and 1984 tour shirts, with my shows,(Rockford Metro Center and Peoria Civic Center), I would grab them.

    I have this thing where I can't wear/purchase any swag with dates of a tour I didn't attend. I first saw them in 1978, so I have that reprint of the 1978 World Tour. I also have that 1984 Tour shirt from Jeff's store. It doesn't have the dates, but I attended that tour. That is one of my favorites. The material it's made of feels fantastic.

    Nothing from the 2004 tour? The best part of that tour was the Eddie Sneakers T-shirt

    I used to have shirts and jerseys I personally bought at shows from every tour from '79 onwards except the Monsters of Rock tour which I skipped. About 10 years ago, I sold almost my entire collection and now only have tour shirts from the last 3 Roth reunion tours. Here's a couple pics I immediately found in my archives:

    TB,

    I had that fourth shirt in the top picture. I'm not even sure what happened to all my swag from The Decade of Decadence. I know that the tickets stubs I had, I threw away when I got married. Not because my now ex wife told me to, but because I just felt like it was something I was supposed to do.

    I regret that more than the swag, because it's not like those shirts would fit me now anyway. I'm within 20 pounds of my 80's weight, but sizes/ fit just seemed different then.

    I wore most of my shirts and jerseys all the time at work and was pretty hard on many of them. Working in sheet metal and later aircraft, I'd get pretty filthy in those shirts, plus I always washed them in hot water which wasn't really bright. After about a decade, they'd fade, get thin and of course shrink.

    The one VH 1984 jersey with the baby on the front was actually bought at a Music+ record store around the middle of '84 and was made of much better material then most of the tour jerseys of the time. When I eventually sold it, it was almost as-new condition.
