An unprecedented collection, with some units impossible to find on any secondary market, such as the exclusive tie-dye t-shirt sold for $ 52,000 a few months ago, which is now made available to “everyone” thanks to the help of Ross Wilson and a lot of passion. According to the collector, the most valuable in the assortment is the 1999 WTAPS Box Logo T-shirt. Only 30 exist.
