No worries. The one I have now is a nice reminder of the fabulous time I had at the Euro 12 shows. The ape/man one was a reminder of the Canada 05 tour. It was perhaps time to freshen things up.

I loved that shirt too and recently replaced my old, worn out one with a new one from ebay. If this new one was ever worn it certainly doesn't show.

The insignificance shirt, with the pineapples as bombs detail was really cool. I lost a bag of 30+ PJ shirts. That was one of them sadly.

I still have the pineapple bombs shirt but it's getting a little raggedy.

Mine was advertised as brand new condition and it didn't disappoint. So glad to have that shirt back.

The two shirts I really miss though: Nightmares from the Vitalogy era with the overturned burning truck on the front. And the long sleeve navy blue Binaural head shirt.

I still wonder if people actually wear those. I mean, at a PJ show, lots of people will recognize you. But going out/to work/wherever with this on you... it freaks me out:

I saw an analog shirt on FB the other day that had been made onto a tie dyed shirt. It was actually kinda cool. Also the rob had a weird version of one too.

Deep, I left them behind in my ex girlfriends(yes that long ago) when I moved out. Man there were the best shirts in there. The 95 orange one withthe mod target and the monkeywrench embroidered on the sleeve, the soccer jerseys from 98. Too many it hurts to think on them.

Man, I forgot all about the pineapple bombs shirt. I used to have that one, lost it somewhere though. Can't remember now, shit.

My favorite shirt is the Reject one from '93. Its on its last leg, but I love it.

The 2000 bootleg shirts with the setlists on them were pretty cool too. Always wanted one, never got one.

The question is... does anyone have a Goat hat? and would you rather wear that or the Analog shirt?

I had the green ten club shirt with the star on it; do you know which one I'm talking about? It didn't say Pearl Jam anywhere on it, just 10c. It was my favorite. One night, when I was out, one of my room mates and his girlfriend found a drunk girl with no shirt puking all over herself in the stairwell. So the girlfriend goes into my bedroom (not her boyfriends'), pulls a random shirt out of my closet and gives it to the drunky to let her wipe up the puke and put on. It was my Ten Club shirt! WTF! I never saw it again.

Brilliant, this thread has provided some serious entertainment.

Thanks dave for flagging it up.

Just to clear a few things up.....Bushleaguer isnt me as Dave confirms above. Hes based out west in the states, and Im in the Uk. If there was ever a collection that would be determined as complete it would certainly belong to him. He has almost everything out there that has ever surfaced. Yet before anyone jumps to the conclusion that he or other collectors are spotty nerds who only have the internet for their sexual pleasure and a bucket load of tissues by their bed, Im sorry to shatter those illusions. He is a exceptionally nice guy, a normal chap, who just has this as a hobby.

Id like to think this is true of myself. A virgin? thats funny shit right there. :D

To anyone who wonders about this and why the hell anyone would want all this in their house? I have no answer for you. But its kinda complusive. Starting out small to get certain items that stand out, it branches out from there. Obviously you have to have that sort of personality to be like that, but its nothing more than a hobby. It takes very little time, checking ebay and a few select sites in the odd spare minute, and doesnt have to cost the earth. I get that the majority will not understand it, but thats fine, my wife certainly doesnt. But its just a little fun, and if i needed to I would sell it in a heartbeat - its just stuff, but also stuff that has without question increased in value massively over the years. I honestly believe I will never sell it, and have no intention to do so, but anyone suggesting its a waste of money is a touch misguided. Its certainly proved a better investment in terms of retained value than any stocks and shares I have involved myself in.

Anyway, its a fun hobby, and as victor is quoted as saying earlier in the thread, the best thing has been making friends from around the globe, who I am delighted to have formed close friendships with and often get together and have a few drinks. These people are awesome and the community at PJC remains one of the most enjoyable ones to be involved in. Theres no negativity, no bullshit, just friendly people who have a similar interest.

I have the "Evil Goat" hat. It really does keep you warm and the flaps fold down. I live in Tampa and never wear it but I keep it just in case I go back home to Ohio in the winter.
