About Reagan Bush Shirts

In an electrifying 1975 speech to conservatives, Republican Ronald Reagan encouraged the audience to raise "a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people." From the moment that President Reagan took the oath of office on January 20, 1981, all the hard work by volunteers wearing Reagan-Bush shirts paid off. In the midst of the Iran hostage crisis, former California governor Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, soundly defeated the incumbent, Jimmy Carter, carrying 489 electoral votes to Carter's 49. For a touch of American history, browse the large inventory on eBay for Reagan-Bush shirts from 1980. These shirts include old-school banded T-shirts from the Republican National Convention held in Detroit, featuring the GOP elephant logo and the city's skyline. Other authentic styles include blue T-shirts sporting the campaign slogan, "The time is now," above the candidates' names and 1980 flanked by stars. When Reagan and Bush ran for re-election in 1984, the electoral landslide was legendary. They earned a record-setting 525 electoral votes, carrying 49 states, to challenger Walter Mondale's 13 electoral votes and one state, plus Washington, D.C. The 1984 campaign shirts simply read "Reagan Bush '84," setting the stage for George H.W. Bush's win in 1988.
