Level II trainee shirt in tie dye

Post by Hotdog »

Here's one that's unique. It's the mid-1990's Space Academy Level II trainee shirt, but in tie dye. In all my years, I have never seen one in tie dye. Does anyone know if this was a legit issue? Willing to bet this was tie-dyed by the owner after the fact.

I agree that it looks like it was tie dyed after the fact.

Otherwise, it'd likely been silkscreened with a base of white. I've also never seen any tie-dyed SC camper shirts.
Besides, it's not very well done. I have a nice NASA 'meatball' t-shirt I found at Wal-Mart of all places and it was very well done and went well with the meatball colors.
The shirt above looks like a half step from "forgot to wear something camo when I went to that paintball game"...
