Up for bid at eBay: Strike wear, circa 1988

Writersguildt Looking for a little street cred on the picket line?

Right now on eBay, someone is selling a T-shirt that reads on front, “I Survived the Writers Guild Strike 1988.”

The shirt currently has three bids, and is going for $15.50. According to the seller:

One of a kind, never worn, stored in zip lock plastic all these years, in pristine condition, an incredible collectible for a screenwriter or screenwriter-in-training.  White Fruit of the Loom shirt, short sleeved, 100% preshrunk cotton, size L, made in the USA.  Graphic on the front includes an image of an old manual typewriter — the way we USED to write screenplays!  Text on front says “I survived the Writer’s Guild Strike 1988; Let’s Do Lunch Again.”  This is truly an exclusive opportunity, whether you’re on strike or not. 

Love the classic typewriter image on front. I imagine a “I Survived the Writers Guild Strike 2007” shirt will either feature the image of a computer screen or iPod.
