Here's a cool retro website that sells 50's styled bowling shirts that some of you might find of interest:

Here are some pictures of a couple shirts that I found of interest. The links may disappear as they change out products:

You might even be able to come up with an effect using this one:

Ask someone to choose a card from your shirt as you turn around, and remember it. Since it seems like there are so many cards on the shirt, they may perceive that their choice is free, but as there are actually only a small number of face-up cards on the shirt, you are really forcing one of those cards. You should then be able to come up with a quick way of revealing their choice from a deck or packet.

I got the black shirt with the card pips in a row. It is a nice fitting shirt, looks good. Recommended, especially for big guys! Shipping was fast, ordered it the same day I left the 1st post here, and received it 3 days later.

In order for me to wear one of those corny getups I would have to be dressed by an undertaker!

Me thinks that Airship's poker shirt design could possibly be converted into a Sylvester Jacketless Topit without the braces. I may have to look into this further. T'anks, Chris!

I used to work with a well dressed black man, who asked me one day at lunch "Do white men who dress like dorks know how bad they look?"

I laughed, and told him that when their wives refuse to eat dinner with them until they change their clothes they think their wives are joking, because they are absolutely sure they look cool.

When you guys wear those shirts do you put a tooth pick in your mouth, a pencil on your ear, a pack of smokes up your sleeve, and a nerd pouch in you pocket for accessories?

Some of us live in the HOT southwest.

So lighter dress is excepted.

I going to order the two shirts pictured in the first post.

I will wear one of my rhinestone magic pins on the left side of the shirt.

And I don't care what my wife thinks. lol

Hey George (Neznarf)
Somehow with your cool long grey hair I can see you looking good in one of those shirts. I hope you got the one with flames on it.

Some times my magic Café posts, and my comedy monologue writing crossover, I can't help it. That is why I love my job so much, I can be a kid for ever.

No problem, Nez! I wish more people would share stuff like this with us.

FYI: I guess that this company is sort of big, as they have a small ad in the back of Rolling Stone magazine. So they are clearly trying to appeal to a younger (than some of us) crowd.

It's like traveling in time back to the 50's.

Someone should buy one of the bowling shirts and come up with a bowling-based act. Finish with a bowling ball production, of course. You could work the bars in bowling alleys for tips.

Hey guys, thanks for the link to Daddy-O's. I'm going to order a shirt for my walk-around act.

I could never perform in any of those. Not enough pockets.
