If you like sports and the Grateful Dead, and are interested in wearing something other than that ratty old poncho, you're in luck: Sportiqe Apparel is releasing a T-shirt line combining NBA logos with classic Dead artwork, so you can rep your favorite team while jamming out to "Touch of Grey" and "Scarlet Begonias."
The "Grateful Dead by Sportiqe Collection" T-shirt line will feature Spotique's vintage design with renowned Grateful Dead artwork and select NBA team logos, including the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors.
“We are so honored to be able to bring a collection to the fans of such legendary artists as Grateful Dead," said Jason Franklin, co-owner of Sportiqe. "These guys have fans who are quite possibly some of the most devoted music enthusiasts out there. We truly appreciate how much inspiration they offered the collection and we believe it truly reflects their signature rocker lifestyle and look."
The tees will be available in mid-April on www.Sportiqe.com (and high-end retailers and department and specialty stores) and will run $35-$45.
