You are bidding on a piece of my past history. As a teenager, I was a huge Van Halen fan. As a tribute, I purchased a grey jean jacket and had the logo from Van Halen's 1984 tour airbrushed onto the back. This was the Western Exterminator logo - the man in the top hat with the hammer.
The jacket itself is a Canyon River Blues jean jacket, size Adult Medium. The jacket is worn but still in good shape - I wore this alot when I was a kid through high school. T is some fraying at the cuffs, and some fraying along the bottom hem of the jacket. T is also some wear along the collar, w it has been folded for years. The sleeves have some light yellowing, as does the collar, from being stored, probably since the early 90's. The jacket has been washed, so the smell of storage is gone, but t is still some yellowing...probably from the VH concerts I went to wearing this.
The airbrushing was done at Hampton Beach, NH, probably back in the mid to late 80's. It has kept very well and you can see from the pictures that the drawing is accurate to the real image used on that tour.
I have no need for this, and though t is some sentimental value to this, I am cleaning house and this is in the pile of things that have to go.
This is a unique item for any Van Halen fan. With rumors of a pending reunion and tour, this would be a welcome item for you, or if you have a kid that you plan to bring along.
The jacket is being sold AS IS, so if you have questions, please contact me prior to bidding. Thanks for looking
