Evel was my hero! I was so excited when I got this autograph from him a few years back. I mailed him and a week later it was in the mail. I wish I could have met him.
Anyway Shan, I really like this design.

Oh wow, it even says To Andrew, how cool You're lucky you even got a response, let alone such a good one...you always hear stories of how kids wrote to their favorite athlete or celebrity and never hear back from them.

In Feb. 1971 he jumped 19 cars to successfully break the world's record. A little bit after that he tried to jump some Pepsi trucks and I guess that's where he had his first major wreck.

The morning show I listen to used to have him on quite often, right up to several days before he died and he was always a good sport and so nice.

Great work, shan! I love the white silhouettes. Evel was so cool.

another 1971 baby here.

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

Nope sorry, I wish I did. Joe and I have both emailed Jason and Dave with no results. I guess we're taking the week off.

Great. I'm not sure how the brown works with the red/white/blue though.

Yeah we went through the different color choices over here but everyone who responded said to keep the brown. I liked it on both brown and navy. Thanks for the nod!

Thanks for the link to your Zazzle store. They're pretty slick, and the shirts and designs can be very cool. I've ordered a couple of things there, and received them in just a few days. The quality of the shirts is good and the images are comparable to Woot's in printing quality. I have a family connection to Evel Knievel (God rest his soul) and would love to have this shirt!

I'm glad you like the shirt and with a connection to his family, I'm glad you're not offended by it. Also I'm encouraged by your good experience with Zazzle. I have a lot more to put on there, just haven't gotten to it yet. But I would like to have this one and will probably order one for myself too. Another good thing about Zazzle is you can let the buyer choose the shirt color
