Default White Dragon T-Shirt

I was browsing USA's ebay site recently and found for sale a t-shirt with a "White Dragon" logo on it. It appeared to be from the time of issue of the bo , and I wondered if anyone knew anything about this

Well there is the Whelan shirt, from Michael Whelan's site. Love that one. And there is the Dragon Wagon one, and I forget, pretty sure I have a thrid one somewhere. Or a Third Anne shirt. Crystal Singer or something. Maybe.

Was there really an official Dragon Wagon tshirt?

P'ter, the Dragonflight shirt was sold at DragonCon 1999.
Mouse, the Crystal Singer ("Make Your Blood Sing") shirt was the first and only official The Worlds of Anne McCaffrey tshirt, also presented at DragonCon.

"Jump on the dragon wagon" was the slogan for the marketing around the publication of The White Dragon.

Known are posters, stickers, buttons and such.

And yes, Lily, I certainly consider the Crystal Singer tshirt a collectible! There can't have been made/sold much as it was one of Alec's ideas. It was a good one but it didn't last long and the webshop, in which I put quite some time, never materialized...

And uhm... I wear all my Anne McCaffrey tshirts since I don't have room to hang them all on the wall and I'd rather wear them than keep them behind locked doors

Well. I would say that the Dragon Wagon shirt I have is offical. I've had it awhile. Can't see how it's fake.

If you didn't make it personally there's a great change you are right

Seriously... Do you wear it? Can you make a picture, or is this somewhere you can't get at it, too?

Re: White Dragon T-Shirt

IN 1985 or 86 but I believe it was 85 Anne was guest to Note to self cut nails at Norwescon in either Federal Way or the Tacoma Sheraton, I worked at both in hospitality and can't remember but it might have been at Federal Ways Red Lion now the Doubltree come to think of it and William R Warren did black shirts with gold dragons on them that were hers....mine is buried in my small clothes and hopefully impervious from mice in my storage unit of 15 yrs......Becky did you go to that one? it may have been the NonCon year since there was terrible vandalism so last year because then because of an error in our cancellation the 4 of us that normally shared a room we ended up in a room with like 17 others whom several of were the vandals....well I was last out of the room and 2nd of the hospitality ConCom so they didn't have it if it were that year but I got 3 suede romance books of hers in pastel colors that I sold last summer or the year before before I knew you guys dang it.....and that was at the red lion so I think it was there......anyways so that is another Convention that had unique but approved shirts just not by Whelan. If I ever get into storage again I will post it here I promise I have a few others I can ask about it and will too.....Merry Christmas to you one and all, all my love to you deb

It's not so much that I can not get to it, it's hanging in the closet. I don't wear these shirts, they are at least 30 years old. Some less but. The problem would be that I have no clue how to go about posting a picture here.

You could e-mail it to Hans (or Cheryl or me) and have it done for you.

Better yet, open yourself an account on Photobucket. Upload your picture(s) there (their built in loader) and from there you can get the IMG code to post in here.

Go to 'reply' and click on the icon of a postcard. Paste in your IMG code and there you are. Do check your post in preview before posting as Photobucket occasionally gives you some extra code bits; usually (when it goes wrong) it doubles the at the tail.

It's not as bad as it sounds.

P'ter is right. If you would rather not bother but are able to send it to me I would post it for you. That would be great. I really would like to see it as I have never even seen even a picture of it!
All this provided you have a camera, a phone with camera or a friend/colleague with camera of course

Debadoo - I've only been to one con in my life and that was DragonCon in 99. I never even knew about cons in Seattle till AFTER I really got into reading Anne's books. Makes me so very sad to know that I missed out on meeting her sooner!

I had that shirt from Sci-Fi Book Club years ago. It was a promo item for Wheelan fans. Unfortunately, mine wore out, though my wife found a replacement. Too small for me though.Waaaaaahhhhhh. Loved that shirt!!

That sounds right, Elvenart! Maybe you still have a picture of yourself in which you are wearing the older one?

Uhm, if you have a shirt too small for you, would you consider selling it? I'm a really small guy...


Dernok, the promotional shirt will probably have the same art and text on it as the button of which I posted a picture somewhere on the board back in May 2006:



And artwork like the (bumper) sticker Lady Maelin has in her collection:
