Before a move to Tennesse, the Titans called the city of Houston home and were known as the Oilers. The team's history includes 15 playoff appearances. Hall of Fame Running Back Earl Campbell led the Oilers in the late 1970s into the early 1980s until fellow Hall of Famer and quarterback Warren Moon got into the driver's seat. A move to Tennesse was announced after the 1995 season and fandom quickly died down. While the team moved to Nashville, the legacy of the Oilers is not forgotten in Houston.
This Official Oilers T-Shirt is 1980s-90s authentic and was acquired by Vintage Sports in 2018. This new old stock item was made in the USA and shipped to Europe approximately 35 years ago to be sold at the military Post Exchange in Mannheim, Germany. The Post Exchange is normally located on US military bases throughout the world and meant to provide US products to American troops. After the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, the US military emphasis began to shift away from Germany to the Balkans. The garrison at Mannheim, once one of the largest in Europe is now mostly a ghost town.

In 1957 Garan was incorporated as a merger of seven companies. After they decided to go public in 1961 they began to distribute clothing bearing the designs of professional sports teams in 1975. During their short time as a company, Garan managed to produce some of the highest quality vintage apparel. Become a part of history with a purchase from our collection of Garan t-shirts.

Small cracks in the paint etc. add to the patina of the item and should not be considered imperfections, they are a part of its rich American history.
