ABSU - Extremely Rare 1992 First Shirt Ever Made

Almost impossible to find and rare as hell, this is the first Absu shirt ever made. The front print logo was done by Equitant, and the back print illustration was done by Chris Moyen. There were 30 of these made in total, printed by Russ's dad in September 1992. It was originally printed in metallic silver ink, but the metallic look of the ink has almost faded away (it's easier to see in real life). The silver ink on black must have looked amazing when it was first printed...

I acquired this through Equitant's personal archives.

A massive THANK YOU goes out to Ray (Equitant) for helping me get this shirt into my permanent collection. I owe you one, man!
