NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skullman.com announces the 2012, 20th Anniversary reissue of the original 1992 Lithuania Tie Dye basketball jerseys.
Seen by the world, the basketball dunking Skullman image on Tie Dye uniforms, worn by the 1992 Lithuanian Men's Olympic Basketball Team, became a househould icon and part of sports history during the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics. The Slam Dunking Skeleton gained international attention and rallied the 1992 Men's Lithuanian Basketball Team to a bronze medal victory. The image of the Slam Dunking Skullman on the uniforms became a point of focus and pride for Lithuania's Olympic Men's Basketball Team.
The new 20th Anniversary Edition is an exclusive release of the original jersey with the same iconic Slam-Dunking Skeleton front. The back of the shirt is imprinted with the 2012 Anniversary year and the trademarked skeletal hands slam dunking a flaming basketball, available from www.skullman.com.
The Original trademark was created independently by Olympic sports artist Greg Speirs in 1992, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3998173/ who donated 100% of his profits that year from the sale of jerseys to become the major funder of the 1992 Men's Lithuanian Olympic Basketball Team. The artist was the source and creator of the image, now documented in the soon to be released 2012 movie, "The Other Dream Team." http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1606829/fullcredits#. The original skeleton design represented the artist's interpretation of team rising up from nothing.
The Original 1992 Jerseys and the new 2012 Edition Collector's Reissue are both available from: www.skullman.com.
