Rarest of Rare Journey Shirts - Japan Tour 2
This is the final Escape Tour shirt, and its by far the rarest. I never knew it existed until the revered Terry Brennan shared it with us ebayers. It just blew me away when i saw it listed. I mean, i had the one scarab shirt, which is pictured above, so for me that was a grand accomplishment to get. But this? Nuts. He sold a small first that i got, which didnt get any bigger after a wash and hours of wet stretching. I sent him an email asking if he had a larger version and he said he didnt know. But lo and beholding the XL you see here was found and i got it.
I am very happy with my Journey Escape Tour t-shirts, concert jerseys, and jacket. Its taken a long time to get this set of items together. It was a big time for vintage shirts in the early 2000s, and it was the ideal time to be buying and selling. Sorta seems to be losing its steam though. Maybe everything got sold off? I am sure there are more closets and unopened drawers to rifle through - and i keep looking for sure. Next i will move onto the shirts from 1980 - 1977 that i have. Some really really rare stuff in there, you just wait.
