Vintage Shirt Collects $7,000... Selling on eBay
A Vintage Work Shirt recently ignited a bidding war on eBay. The shirt, a 1920ís indigo train engineerís shirt, drew a virtual crowd before collecting its final eBay selling price of $7,100.
In the end 900 visitors clicked to take a closer look at the highly sought after shirt, with 14 (collectively) placing 30 bids before the 7 day auction ended.
According to James Massey, publisher of WhatSellsBest.com, a free website which tracks top selling eBay items. The train engineerís shirt (sold) was made by Reunion with a Stifel dyed fabric. ďVintage shirts made with (marked) Stifel fabrics always seem to have high demandĒ
Besides vintage shirts, old jeans also appear to be favorites among vintage clothing collectors. In 2008 a pair of 100-year-old Leviís jeans found in a California goldmine fetched a final (eBay) selling price of $36,099.
Massey also stated; ďMany times owners of rare vintage clothing donít what they have, or what itís worth. It ends up being donated to Goodwill or sold for pennies on the dollar in a garage sale. Itís too bad, because itís pretty easy to get a general sense of (monetary) value these days. It usually only takes a few minutes using free online sites.Ē
