This amusing vintage tee reads, "give a sucker a break" and the phrase is paired with a comical image of a vampire sporting the same type of slicked hairstyle and high-collar cape that was popularized by Bela Lugosi's Dracula.
This shirt was made in the 70s by John John Inc. and the humorous image it has featured is perfectly reminiscent of the wacky cartoon style that was commonly used on t-shirts around that time.T-shirt manufacturers drew inspiration from underground comix artist like R. Crumb and custom culture cartoonists like Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.
This graphic on this tee is signed Hord, likely in refernce to Bob Hord, an illustrator who worked for Mattel Toys in the 70s, before he turned to freelancing. Hord's work has also been used by the popular Hawaii-based t-shirt company Crazy Shirts.
