This awesome vintage jersey was made all the way back in the 1950s and has held up amazingly over the years. While the shirt is totally blank on the front, the back of this bright red tee features the logo for the classic carbonated soft drink, Coca-Cola. Coke was first developed as a temperance drink during the 19th century. It was created by John Stith Pemberton who intended to created a patent medicine out of the drink. Pemberton sold the drink to Asa Griggs Candler in 1888, and overtime Coca-Cola transformed into one of the most iconic soft drinks on the planet.

The 1950s were the first decade to introduce canned coke, although bottled coke was still more readily available. In fact, the modern day coke bottle shape with its iconic contour was introduced in the 50s. The bottle even appeared on the cover of TIME magazine at the start of the decade. While canned coke was introduced in 1955, it didn't become widely available to the public until about 1960. The initial coke can design had a drawing of a coke bottle on it so that consumers wouldn't get confused.

Fits like a modern unisex adult small.
