1992 Skullman® Lithuanian Olympic Tie Dye Basketball T-Shirts Resurface 2021
Original Creator offers public another chance to own a piece of iconic Olympic history
For Release- NEW YORK-04-28-21 from Skullman.com - Created by NYC artist Greg Speirs, the tie-dyed Slam Dunking Skeleton T-Shirts became an international sensation on the world stage of the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics. The Tie-Dyed tees were worn by the Lithuanian Men's Olympic Basketball Team while receiving Olympic bronze medals, becoming part of sports history and one of the most unusual and memorable moments of the ’92 Summer Olympics.
Speirs' Tie-Dyed Skullman ®, Slam-dunking a flaming basketball, with the block letters Lithuania, gained international fame and the trademarked Slammin Skeleton® & Lithuania Tie Dye ® Brands were launched. The brands have enjoyed longevity of almost three decades being marketed through Skullman.com continuously since 1992.
The Lithuanian Slam-Dunking Skullman ® on Tie-Dye T-Shirts represented the artist's interpretation of a team rising from nothing, "Like a Phoenix from the ashes to slam-dunking a flaming basketball to bronze victory. It's not a dead skeleton, but represents rebirth and a new life. It was not only a victory in Olympic sports, but it was as if it were a triumph over communism itself," recalled Speirs, featured in the 2012 basketball documentary movie, "The Other Dream Team" http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3998173/
