-Arguably the most rare/sought after Bape tee of all time. A little history: Biggie showed up to this photo shoot with Shawn Mortensen in 1996 and was interested in the Bape jacket he’s seen wearing which actually belonged to the photographer. He liked the jacket so much he asked if he could wear it for the shoot and where he could buy one, Shawn told him it was his friend Nigo’s brand out of Japan. At the time Nigo didn’t make any Bape in Biggies size so Nigo had some 1/1 pieces made in 4XL specifically for hIm but unfortunately he passed away before those pieces ever made it to him. Fast forward to December of 2002, Nigo and Shawn had a photo exhibit at Bape Gallery titled “It’s My Life.. Or It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time”. Some of Shawns favorite photos, including the one of Big in Shawns Bape jacket, were printed on tees and sold at the event in extremely limited quantities. 50 tees per design, 10 in each size, XS-XL. In other words only 50 of these tees were ever produced and only sold in person at Bape Gallery London in 2002. Saying this piece is rare or a grail is an understatement this is a truly priceless piece of streetwear history
