Stunner! Florida Escape tour shirt finally found - Collection is complete

Here it is. Possibly rarer than the rarest of Journey shirts. I saw the Lakeland Civic Center shirt from 1981 only once before in a lot of shirts on eBay back in the early 2000s. Didn't buy them all then as the price was high and I figured it would come up again soon. Well, its been over 10 years since another showed up - I couldn't believe it when I saw it. Seemed unreal. Unfathomable even. I doublechecked it real fast to make sure it wasnt a fake or anything, and hit the Buy it Now button for $87. Listing said it was from a record exec's collection. So, so glad that exec decided to part with this kind of stuff. I am still amazed that I have it.

And as you can see, the group is now complete. These are the four shirts from 1981 that feature the distinctive Journey Escape font tilted on its side: includes the Seattle shirt, the Dallas and Houston shows, and the Syracuse show. There is no way in hell you will ever see these four shirts together anywhere else.
