Bootleg Fenway setlist shirts

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has noticed the influx of bootleg setlist shirts for the Fenway shows? Dunno if this occurred with the other cities but it speaks volumes to the demand aspect for these. Fenway 2 was one of the best shows I’ve seen, I’m a Bosox fan, and I love the color red. So the night 2 setlist shirt looks damn good to me. But there is ZERO chance I’m paying $80-90 for a fucking t-shirt. 
I know it’s been talked about to death but again...10C can we please make these available as a presale to ticket holders? They’ve done it before, it’s a guaranteed money maker, cut back on bootlegging, fans get the merch before scalpers, win across the board.

    Not gonna lie, if I had the $25 on me, I would've bought the green Citgo Vedder shirt from a street vendor near Wahlburgers.  Those looked dope.  Even Ed Ved showed one off at the show.  LOL.

    The setlist shirts are kind of always a scam at least to me- I hate to be a downer but I have several and after a few washes they’re goners.  Faded printing and frayed seams on a few.  I wouldn’t wait in line for one nor would I pay secondary market prices ever.

    Totally regretting not grabbing one of the grey ones now. Saw them as I passed by the CVS N1 and totally lol’d. Now I really want one.

    Did a basic search online after but nothing popped up. If anyone finds them on the web please post!

    Yeah, don’t wear them.  They’re trade bait at best.

    My wife and I went the 2 for $40 and each got a grey one.  Very Boston.

    My 2016 Fenway night 2 setlist shirt has held up great. Probably has 10 washes in it but always hung to dry.

    I definitely wear my setlist shirt. I wouldn't have bought it otherwise. That's like people who buy collectible records and don't own a turntable. Why? I guess it's all about $$$$$$$$$. I will admit that I have many posters that I have not had a chance to frame and hang, but my intention was to hang them, when they were purchased. I think I need more walls, at this point. ;)

    Yeah, my setlist shirt from 2013 Wrigley was worn and washed maybe twice, and now it's in my old band/concert tshirt bin.

    I think the reason the setlist shirts wear out is the printing process. As they are done fast and overnight obviously I’m sure they use digital direct to shirt printing versus traditional multi-colored screen printing. Without a doubt the color and quality of a digital print shirt will fade quickly and drastically especially with the addition of any heat. But it’s also faster and you can print any and all colors versus 3 or 4 on a screen print. I worked at a print shop briefly a ways back

    I almost asked if anyone could have grabbed one of those shirts from the street vendor as well. It is awesome.
    My favorite shirt I have from a concert is one I bought from a vendor on the street outside Olympic Stadium in Rome this summer. Pic of EV and under it it says GRUNGE. Done like an Obey print. Really cool, cost 7 Euro. Wouldn't trade it for anything.

    How funny would it be if PJ made those shirts to say F U to the bootleggers, like they did with the Vegas vault release.
