The front of the t-shirts had the AN street-corner logo on the left breast pocket area.   The back of the t-shirt had the attached image.  For awhile I think this was also used in the website header.   At the time we all thought it was pretty cool but it now seems quite dated.  We'd all be hard pressed to find this street corner now...

"Don, you just missed it by a couple of months. :("
Story of my life. Was going to change my name to Maxwell Smart cause I was always "that" close or missed it by "that" much.
I was kidding about not having the shirt but you guys do get all the good stuff.

Thanks, Mike for finding that. It seems like a lot of work… a bit of a complex design. It would be fun to have a AN  T-shirt again. Who knows what the cost would be now, but I’d likely pay $30 or so.

Why's the front of that shirt look soooooo familiar?
Glad to see the whole thing. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks very much, Tom. I like the nice simple round logo and that shade of blue. Might ask the local t-shirt guy if he could do one.

Nick, the original shirts were done both with black graphics on a light tan shirt and white graphics on the blue shirts.  I might be able to scrounge up the original artwork done so let me know if you decide to do something with them.  I believe the size of the originals is too large to post here on AN, but I could email them to you or perhaps share them online somehow.   Once you have the artwork, there are lots of places online now that do custom printing for you... not quite so easy 11 years ago.

Mike,
Thanks for that. I really like the look of the blue T-shirt. I’ll send you a PM with my email. The other thing I was thinking of is using our current logo that has the red. Looks pretty cool as well. I have made one phone call so far and the local T-shirt company will only do a minimum of 12. I’ll check out some of the online places.

Nick, just sent you a zip of all the graphics I could find including the red/blue logo one.   If you read through the old posts, most seemed to think that the dark image on the light tan shirt came out better than the white on the blue shirt.  But that was likely a result of the printer and the blue shirt material.  But they both looked great.

Hey new member SteveZ,  I vote for T-Shirts for all members after 500 post.  You've only got 498 more to go! 

By the way, I'm kinda serious about this.  I think most of us would kick in a few bucks to encourage some newer participation.

It doesn't come through that well in the picture, but the blue shirt is actually a stone washed denim look so it has a kind of textured look to it that is somewhat unique among T Shirts.

Hey, does that mean I would qualify for 23 shirts?  :rofl:

I enlarged the picture and it does have quite a good look. Only had time for one phone call today.
