I support the theory that there's a cabal of a half dozen people who keep buying it, washing it, realizing the words are gone, and buying a new copy.
My wife suggested that there may be a Poe Museum who stocks these in thier gift shop.
As to would it be replaced, who can say. This is reckoning 240, it's survived 205. That means there were only 35 before it was printed. The records, going back to 122 never show any other shirt in that position. Though The Binge hasn't always been best seller. The Bird held that title as well until 141.

So for any artists keeping track if you want your designs on AA blanks the above colors are out. Seems like Woot has a large supply of royal blue since the binge has not gone to anvil in any size.
There haven't been many royal blue shirts printed recently, have there? The last two were I like you, but... and Deep Sea Reader, reckoned a month ago and five weeks ago, respectively.
I also think that Woot probably prints The Binge in huge batches, working under the assumption that it isn't going to be Reckoned anytime soon. So unless they were near the end of a huge batch when the blank switch was made, it wasn't likely to switch over right away.
As a chubby chica who underwent much teasing as an adolescent, I find that the idea of wearing The Binge doesn't appeal to me that much, but even I have considered buying a copy lately, since it's still on AA!
