In full: Re: Prop shirt worn by Michael Richards - Thank you for your purchase of the above-mentioned item. This multi colored shirt was issued to the wardrobe department of the television series "Seinfeld" for wear by actor Michael Richards. The shirt was issued to the set in 1989, and was worn on several occasions. As assistant to Prop Master Stan Ascough, I can verify the authenticity of this item. After the series ended, this shirt was sold for resale to "It's a Wrap Productions" located in Burbank, CA. I purchased this shirt in person at It's a Wrap on June 2nd, 1998.
Schiffman's handwritten blue-ink notation along the base reads "Shirt can be seen in BubbleBoy episode + episode about a bet of abstinence." The shirt (size "XL") features a "California Casualaire" manufacturer's tag in the collar and displays light wear. Seinfeld
, which ran on NBC from 1989 through 1998, was a groundbreaking comedy and one of the most popular television shows of the 1990s.
