Butchered at Birth Longsleeve

This is a pretty plain Butchered at Birth long sleeve I think but it's in very nice condition, size Large and fits me like a glove which make me happy.
It does not have a Direct Merchandising or Blue Grape copyright on it. It does have the "Vince Locke" signature next to the knife in the table but that's pretty faded (I have seen ones without the Locke signature). I have two other of this exact same shirt but in t-shirt form. One of them is very well worn with holes and faded front and back from extreme wear, the other has almost never been worn but is defective in the super-wide and super-short way (I think this happens when the shirt is manufactured with the cotton weave in the wrong direction- horizontal rather than vertical. After a wash or two, the shirt gets deformed like this. That's the best I can figure as to why this phenomenon happens to some shirts and not others and I'm too lazy to look it up on some t-shirt collector nerd site). The other strange thing about my short and wide one is the colors are all off- the babies are pink and purple, the blanket upon which the mother is laying is blueish, as are the aprons of the ghouls. The oranges and reds of the original art are more pink, purple and blue. It's kinda psychedelc looking and I've been thinking of making it into a throw pillow as it is unwearable unless you are about 4' tall and 250 lbs.
Also, both the t-shirt versions have the "Direct Merchandising" logo at the bottom as opposed to this long sleeve. If there is any interest in seeing the t-shirt versions let me know and I'll post them
This long sleeve has no copyright at all so I don't know when it's from aside from obviously being from between '91 and '94. I bought it second hand.
