Holy Bible t-shirt - authentic?

Hello all,
Just won a t-shirt on eBay... not overly expensive. But on searching around I can't find any images of another one the same. Wondering if I've bought something of a bootleg/rip-off.

Any ideas? Looks like so...

Can't say I've seen it before it, but only got into them when EMG came out. Can't remember seeing the triple image used before.

I've had a couple of bootlegs in the past. Lasted a fair while. As long as not too expensive looks cool

For 20 I didn’t feel it was right... seller was really good about it. Said he should have explained better in the listing and allowed me to cancel.

Aah fair enough. I don't buy them at gigs but for some of these old designs it's the only way to get them

One of my most beloved MSP t shirts is a bootleg, which I got outside the Kentish Town Forum in December 1996. It has lasted a hell of a lot better than some of the official ones, especially the Millennium t shirt for which the print has all but disintegrated!
