This vintage tee features the legendary Mad magazine mascot, Alfred E Neuman in what appears to be a 1984 election campaign spoof. It's held up great after all this time, preserving that old school charm for years to come. Feature a lovely poly cotton blend, cartoon graphics, and a classic ringer style.
Neuman's funny campaign slogan "W.I.N. (Write in Neuman)," is probably parodying the '84 US election between the Republican Ronald Reagan and Democratic Walter Mondale. The fictional character is widely known as the face of Mad magazine and can be traced back to 1894, first appearing in ads for a play call The New Boy. He actually appeared in several different mediums before Mad, including dentist ads and another political campaign in the 1930s.
In fact, Alfred E. Neuman has long been a popular character used for political satire and humor. Cartoonists have used his likeness in renderings of George W. Bush, many politicians and presidents know exactly who he is and have made references to him at important dinners- like Barack Obama.
Fits like a modern unisex adult extra small. Light spot on the side, see pics.
