Atlanta Black Crackers Hand-Painted T-Shirt

Regular price $42.00 $0.00

Want the old school real deal? This is it! Vintage tees created one at a time, by hand! Each one decorated by hand (like in the old days), and each one an original. Each features a naturally muted, naturally distressed image that harkens back to the early days of professional sports.

The Black Crackers were longtime members of the Negro Southern League, but the 1938 season found they found themselves representing the "Phoenix of the South" in the Negro American League. After winning the NAL's second half in 1938, the Black Crackers were set to take on the first half winners, Memphis Red Sox, for the league championship. Scheduling problems and controversies caused the series to be canceled before it was completed with each team declaring themselves champions.

The waterbased inks and dyes used in producing the shirt's unique design are applied to the fabric with a hand brushing technique, and the design is washfast. Because they are hand-painted, each shirt will be a little different than all the others.

The shirt is made of preshrunk 100% soft, ringspun cotton fabric. The shirt is imported, but decorated right here in the USA.

Begin or continue your collection of extraordinary vintage tees with this Atlanta Black Crackers shirt.

Please note that your shirt will be individually produced just for your order. Production time is normally 5 business days, but varies seasonally depending upon order volume.
