This goofy vintage shirt is from Ohio's Center of Science & Industry in Columbus. The shirt encourages you to catch "rat basketball fever" and shows a lab rat shooting some hoops. Rats can actually easily be taught to play basketball using operant and classical conditioning. Several science labs have taken advantage of this and trained rats to play in competitive games against one another. The Science Museum of Virginia even offers live rat basketball games.
The tag says extra large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult large. There is a repair on the side near the bottom, see pics.
