(Gibson) A Led Zeppelin T-shirt, said to be one of the rarest rock T-shirts in the world, has sold on eBay for a whopping $10,000. The shirt, which was sold by Kyle Ermatinger of Stormcrow Vintage, was produced in 1979 in limited quantity as a unique way to replace conventional backstage passes for one of Zeppelin's legendary Knebworth House concerts.

As reported by Bravewords.com, Ermatinger said his "jaw hit the floor" when he received the sale notification. "Given that this shirt may be one of the only ones in existence, the price tag is completely justifiable" he said. "It's a rock relic, beyond rare." Ermatinger purchased the shirt from the family who ran the shop that screen-printed the original shirts, paying $123.

"At the time, I thought I may have overpaid," Ermatinger said, "until I got back home, looked it up online, and noticed it was ranked #1 as the rarest Zeppelin T-shirt." The buyer, who is located in Australia, declined comment. more on this story
