    I remeber when I wasa a kid and they had these at carnival and stuff as prizes. It's actually in great shape for being over 20 years old

    Are you sure it's 20 years old? I think they still make those. It's cool no matter how old it is. I had a big Dio one!

    I'm guess it is because the age of the frame and the company's copyright on it is 1982 :)

    Sweet, I used to have a Motley Crue one and an Ozzy one back in the day. I wonder what happened to them....

    There was only one reason why I ever found those useful. And it had nothing to do with looking at myself or celebrating my favorite bands. By the way, they still give those away at carnivals today.

    I've got pretty much the same thing hanging in my hallway (the frame is a little bit different, though). I've had it for probably 15 years.

    Great find!

    On the flipside, it brings a tear to my eye because it reminds me of a traumatic experience. One day when I was looking for my T-shirt for the Powerslave tour, I was saddened and maddened to find that my wife turned it into a dust rag.

    Oh the Humanity!
  13. my mom did the same thing to my maiden shirt a few years back :bawl: its a conspricy..they are all just jealous if you ask me :smug:
