This vintage shirt advertises a fictional college called Braces University and includes an image of a cartoon tiger. The shirt is from a local orthodontist named Dr. Ira Schwartz, whose been practicing orthodontics in the city of Bayside, New York since the 1980s. It's not uncommon for orthodontists to sometimes gift their patients t-shirts commemorating major orthodontic work, like braces. This shirt was probably given to a patient as a small consolation prize for making it through their treatment.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There is discoloration on the back and sleeve, see pics.
