"History Nerd" shirt with Ben Franklin - Light red heather
Updated October 19: Only available in Small.
We changed the design slightly and are selling these with the original design. (The difference is pretty subtle. The new design, is here.) It’s a great opportunity to get one of our classic shirts at a great price—but only if you act quickly since we only have a few left.
In the new design, which you can view here, we added some detail to the figure of Ben Franklin.
Our exclusive History Nerd design with Ben Franklin on a super soft 3.5 ounce t-shirt from Next Level 65% poly / 35% cotton and has been pre-washed to reduce shrinkage.
If you have never worn a high-quality poly-cotton shirt before, you’ll want to read this first.
Find other "History Nerd" items in this collection. Including the images of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, a Civil War Soldier, a WWII Paratrooper, WWII Soldier, and more. As well as stickers, magnets, and patches.
Thanks to Blaine Simon for sending your picture wearing the shirt during your visit to The Arch of Constantine and the Colosseum in Rome.

The shirt themes are great and the product is just as good. The exchange procedure was one of the easiest I have ever used. Keep up the good work.
