The Rolling Stones break pretty much all the rules of the music business. After more than 50 years in the game, they're still recording, still touring, and still the band everyone wants to see. You could probably sell a pebble from the beach for a nice sum if you told folks that Mick Jagger once kicked it at Keith Richards. I'm not saying I'd buy it - but I'd think about it. I know, I know, that makes me sound weird. Maybe I am - but is that such a bad thing when it means I find stuff like this amazing shirt from the Stones' legendary 1978 tour. They tossed out the overblown stage theatricals they'd been using up until then and threw everything into the music.

This is a treasure for any die hard fan of the Grateful Dead. This colorful tee shirt proof has been signed by six members of the legendary band , which means that the proof met their approval and could be put into production. Autographed by Bill Kreutzmann, Vince Welnick, Mickey Hart, and founding members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, and the late, great Jerry Garcia himself. This is a true collector's item and your chance to own a real piece of music memorabilia that will be the envy of any Deadhead.

Legend has it this RUN DMC relic was obtained at an invite only show in NYC where only 200 or so attended. The back of this shirt contains the autographs of Darryl 'D.M.C.' McDaniels, Joseph 'Run' Simmons and the late Jason 'Jam Master Jay' Mizel. Rev Run even signed the front again for good measure. Check out the full story behind this shirt over at Record Mecca, and of course drop a cool G on it if it tickles your fancy. I really haven't seen anything similar for sale that is older than this, even though RUN DMC had been around for almost two decades by the time the year 2000 came around. Calling all vintage hip hop memorabilia collectors, any takers? Also, is there anyone out there that can verify this is real? Or that the show actually took place? Not doubting, but more backstory will always help sell an item like this. We wrote about a sweet RUN DMC jacket up for auction last year in this post, which is in fact still for sale.

As you may have heard in the airwaves, Prince is back with a new track called 'Breakfast Can Wait'. The track is supposedly part of a new album in the works for 2014 called 'Plectrum Electrum'. There's also a four song EP that was release on iTunes last week. The artist now known again as Prince along with 3rdEyeGirl have also been putting on some random and impromptu appearances (Pajama Parties?) at Paisley Park in Minnesota. Speaking of Paisely Park, we had a look on eBay to see if there were any rare or interesting Prince shirts or merch for sale. Check out our picks below which include a Paisely Park shirt of unknown year/origin, a 1982 '1999' shirt, and a local crew package with a couple of shirts, jacket, hat and CD. If you're vulnerable to Prince collectibles, hide your wallet now as none of these are on the budget end of things. If there's any Prince merch aficionados out there who can verify the authenticity of any of these shirts, please let us know what you think! And of course, try this page here, if you're looking for something more budget friendly. Maybe you're already loaded down with Prince shirts, share yours with the world by snapping a picture and uploading to our archive. On a final note, how can we get a legit Breakfast Can Wait shirt with the Dave Chapple graphic?

Band Shirt Archive lives, eats and breaths on a shoestring budget. In order to pay our bills, we receive kick downs ($$) from stores like eBay, T-Shirts.com, Stylin Online, Rock.com Hot Topic, Cafe press and other stores you see listed on our site. Basically, if you find a shirt for sale on our website and click through to the store where the shirt is for sale, we might receive a small commission(usually 2% - 10%) from that store when you purchase the shirt. This helps us stay in business, and keeps us from having to do traditional ugly banners and other invasive advertising. We often donate a portion of our revenue to support music education causes (which you can read about on our site or in our press kit). Thanks for supporting Band Shirt Archive!
