Bill Graham was a perfectionist and competitor, qualities that transcended his profession and were extant in all facets of his life. A big fan of basketball, Graham organized regular games before his concerts, pitting himself and his staff, a.k.a. Bill Graham's Crackers, against a variety of opponents including touring musicians, their roadies and crew. These basketball games became one of the long-standing traditions of the Fillmores East and West and originated the Fillmore staff jersey. This Crackers logo, a "cracker" saluting with the trademark Graham "finger," was repeated on t-shirts for many competitions. Performers noted that the aggression Graham demonstrated in their booking and negotiating sessions was a salient feature of his 'friendly' play on the court.
Men's t-shirts are made using the finest combed ringspun cotton to give you the softest, smoothest t-shirt around. A select few are a polyester-cotton blend which increases the t-shirts stretch and softness. These shirts are designed to fit like they did in the 70's and 80's, tailored to the body for a more youthful fit. We suggest thinking a size up when ordering these tees. Our "full cut" shirts are a little more forgiving like the classic beefy tee. The quality and feel remain the same. Be sure to check out our sizing chart to help assure that you'll get the perfect fit on the first try.
Should a tee not fit on the first try, we offer a quick and easy return policy (domestic orders only).
