Iconic Lithuania Tie Dye® Skullman® Basketball Tees 30th Anniversary 2022 Edition Released from Skullman.com
NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ –The Lithuania Tie Dye® Skullman uniforms became an international household icon when seen on the world stage of the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics. They were created by a New York fashion designer so the Lithuanian Olympic Men’s basketball team could have something fun to wear during the Olympics. But they ended up wearing them on the bronze medal platform for the world to see.
Immediately the public wanted to know where they came from and where they could buy one. The way-out warm-ups were created by New York art director & fashion designer Greg Speirs, started selling and became a hot collectible. Speirs saw it as an opportunity to help the team and chose to donate 100% of what would have been his profits to the team, at that point becoming the major funder of the team. https://www.pr.com/press-release/448933

“It represents what happens in freedom…people excel. Winning bronze was not only a victory in sports but symbolized triumphing over communism. Skullman symbolized coming up from the ashes. It’s not dead but represents life and rebirth,” added Speirs.
