The Goonies Skull and Crossbones Pirate Flag Crew Member T-Shirt Retro Vintage Art Tee Prop Replica Reprinted Made in the USA
Ahoy, fellow Goonie! I belong to a social media group full of like-minded fans of the Goonies. One of the members, Jeff Lamp, had the idea to recreate the art that was printed on the film crew's shirts during shooting of the film. Some of these shirts had sold upwards of $600 at auction, so getting an original was like catching a unicorn. So we did the next best thing and printed our own.
The artwork on the shirts was made before the film's iconic logos and typography were created, so what you see on the shirt is a very early concept before commercialization had begun. The artist took several of the screen shots from those auctions and did a perfect vector tracing overlay so that every detail is 100% accurate with the original crew shirts.
GOODIES!!! Each shirt will come with some freebies. They will be similar to the extras shown in the listing's photo, but each shirt will come with different items.

About the artists:
Félix de León was born in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain and as a boy he moved to Gran Canaria with his family in the early 80's. He graduated in Translation and Interpreting from the ULPGC (University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria). He has worked as a makeup artist and art director. He is currently working as an illustrator. He combines this activity with teaching English. It is worth mentioning that among his accomplishments are the awarded Canarian short film "Ansite" (2011) and the feature film "Maresia" (2014).
He illustrated the award-winning children’s book Planet Nowhere.
One of his main influences are 80s science fiction and adventure movies and TV series.
As an avid cinema goer and film enthusiast since his childhood, he has been heavily influenced by 80’s pop culture, mostly science fiction and adventure movies and TV series.
I started making things in the summer of 1993. I started out decorating people’s schoolbook covers for lunch money. In eighth grade I won an art contest and was chosen to paint a mural on the school’s wall. My next move was bending the cafeteria flatware into animal shapes out of boredom, and then it occurred to me that people might actually enjoy my creations.
I spent my summers as a sign and race car painter with my uncle. I was always known for my cartoon-style mascots and characters. This facet of my life is what led me to working at a magazine, and creating advertisements and logos for hundreds of companies.
I currently live in the Columbus, Ohio area as a graphic artist by day, and a maker by night. I am more known for my Star Wars, Goonies, Big Lebowski, Hellraiser, and other pop-culture creations. I am often referred to as, “the guy that makes things that no one else can or wants to make.”
