This awesome tee is a keepsake that dates all the way back to 1953. The shirt commemorates the Boy Scouts of America's National Scout Jamboree, which was held that year at Irvine Ranch in California. The theme for that year's event was "Forward on Liberty's Team" and to honor it, Jamboree Road was built. This road stretches through Orange County and was paved over the dirt trail which led to where the BSA members were camping for the duration of the jamboree.
The 1953 event was only the third national jamboree in BSA history. Thanks to its proximity to Hollywood, several movie stars were able to make an appearance. This included Roy Rogers, James Stewart, and Bob Hope. Attendees were also treated to an appearance by President Eisenhower and his Vice President Nixon, who even stayed to help cook breakfast for his home town troop of scouts.
Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. There's a repair on the back of the right shoulder while wearing, see pics.
