I saw one of these tee-shirts a few days ago, but I was waiting for others to hit the Bigfoot market.
Now this one is out.
Besides these two, no other high-quality tees have surfaced, as far as I have been able to discovery. The news cycle is shifting, Senator Biden, not Bigfoot, will be all over the airwaves in the near future. Georgia ice-cube Bigfoot tee-shirts will not be on folks’ minds for long.
Zeke: “Hey, Elwood, what in the world we gonna do with these 10,000 freshly printed Obama-Bayh ’08 tee-shirts?”
Elwood: “I don’t know, Zeke, but I heard about this guy out in California that might buy ‘em. He’s into buyin’ things that no one else would.”
Other regional events and generalized celebrations of all things cryptids have resulted in other tee-shirts too. I suppose the CNN or FOX mini-documentary may be the next thing we hear about, but the tees live on in photos.
While waiting on the Georgia Bigfoot hoax docs and other related-deception tees, buy a tee-shirt from a guy trying to help the cause, not make fun of it. Wildlife artist Richard Klyver, who spent seven years in Africa, has produced a series of high-quality tee-shirts. His first one is a drawing of the Abominable Snowman or Yeti, as shown here.
In support of the International Cryptozoology Museum fundraising drive, he is generously donating $2.50 from the sale of each tee-shirt. If interested, please contact Klyver at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk to him about PayPal or snail mail check payment. The cost of $20/shirt includes domestic postage, for one shirt (sizes S, M, L, XL), with the Abominable Snowman on it. Be sure to include your shipping address with your PayPal payment.
Or just donate the $20 to the Museum, straight to email@example.com

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
