Remember the Anthrax Club? ...
-- Thursday, January 15, 2009
Chris Daily has teamed up with the Sheridan brothers to bring us a new book about the famous Anthrax Club of Connecticut. It's ramping up in 2009 and headed to a bookshelf near you before you know it.
As for me, I don't remember. I was age 6 in 1985. I was down with matchbox cars and Michael Jackson's Thriller album. But if you were there, hit up Daily as he's a good dude with a great idea.
December 2008: An Ebay Wrap Up ...

Al made up some shirts in his basement and 15 years later, made $26 on the negative films, or something like that. Not bad at all, Al!
Wow, this one was beat. Great design, but beat. Too bad.
Quality looking bootleg, if that's your bag. Good price for a white tee regardless of what's printed on it.
This one was the re-list from last month's wrap up. Last time, it didn't meet the reserve (it ended at $33). This time it hit $45. I think I deserve a cut, right! ;)
I've always wanted an original Schism logo tee. I've never see one though. Hell, I've barely ever seen boots. I bid on this a few times, but once it started peaking over $40, I tossed in the towel. No thanks, dudes. If anyone has a legit Schism logo tee, hook it up!
Another boot. Another outrageous price.
Old H2O tee. Guess kids aren't into XL ringers. Weird.
Old Smorgasbord records tee. Fun fact. There is a rumor that kids would buy the 10th anniversary tee shirts (From 97, I think), then cut the sleeves off. They would then sew a sleeve from a color matched shirt back on, giving them an '87 styled tee. What about that??
Great tee. Great tee. No doubt about it. It looks a little beat, but well worth the amount spent. I hope the new owner wears it with pride.
This band has chill merch. And for some reason, it almost always resells for ridiculous amounts of money. Take this crewneck. It's less than a year old. In fact, they may still sell them on their tour. Wowza.
I think this one must have slid under the wire. Weird.
Here's a quality tee. Sharp logo, great look, no weird blurry Matt picture either.
This makes me want to sell my american nightmare demo. YIKES!
The seller claimed this tee was original. I am doubting that. It's easily 19 years old. No way that shirt would have held up that well. No way. Great shirt though.
Hey look, another Bold Speak Out tee. This one clocks in for 6 more dollars than the last one. Not too shabby.
I've got a bit of a Bane buying habit. That's not too bad when a hooded sweatshirt sells for less than $10. If anyone has one that I don't have, look me up. I want yours.
Plain and simple. It says what needs saying and leaves crappy graphics blowing in the wind. This shirt is probably 11-12 years old. Looks great.
This lasted for about 2 days on ebay. MAYBE. Probably less. Someone must have offered a good BIN price because the seller yanked it down. Anyone know how much it went for?
No bids. Funny story: I became straight edge in early 1998. Prior to that, I didn't want to purchase any tees that screamed STRAIGHT EDGE. During March of 1998, I drove to Detroit Fest (held in Wayne, Michigan, oddly enough) with 2 great friends. It was at this event that I decided it would be ok to purchase straight edge gear. Andrew Thomas CO had a merch table set up (probably wedged between a vegan cookie table and a zine table) and I grabbed one of their shirts. Actually, they had a portable clothing rack with shirts on hangers. High class! The first sxe shirt I purchased is the one pictured above. Oddly, that seller could have purchased it from me a few years ago and decided to resell it now. Who knows? Second fun fact: People referred to this shirt as my "Hampton Beach Straight Edge Shirt." LOL!
This is a fine way to wrap up December. This one ended on the last day and sort of chafed my ass. The seller purchased this shirt straight from Bill Punch during a phase where Bill sold all his remaining FP tees. Now I know the seller didn't pay Bill Punch even half that much for that tee. I actually tried to get it from Bill when he was selling it originally but he already promised it to this other kid. And crap, this kid sells it on ebay a few months later, likely unworn. Damn it.
So there you have it. That's December 2008. Some steals, some deals, some general wackiness. Until next month ...
