Ric Flair's First T-Shirt:

I Do It With Flair

In 1985, Jim Crockett Promotions released their first line of commercial merchandise that was based on their wrestlers. These were sold at the events as well as through mail order.

  Ric Flair's first shirt was a classic: the phrase "I do It With Flair" boldly emblazoned in sparkling gold on the front of a royal blue shirt. This particular shirt was only available for a short period of time in late 1985 and early 1986.

Figuring there was no way I was going to wear one of these (would I do it with Flair?), I bought one for my then 5-year old step-daughter. (Actually, now that I think about it, there was something a little sick about that, too.) But Mandy loved it, she'd put it on right after her bath each night, it was her favorite sleep shirt for months.

 I wish I had that shirt now; I've never seen one of these shirts since.
