Can anyone identify this T-shirt font? The ampersand and W are way off in ITC Machine. Thanks!
I've still had no luck with this one. I'm still hoping for ideas/options.
Douglas "Ox" Baker won the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship in 1977, which is probably what the T-shirts pictured here refer to. In the 7os, custom messages on T-shirts were most often produced with iron-on letters designed and made for that purpose. They weren't copied from any specific font designed for typesetting, although they often resembled workhorse bold sans-serifs like Franklin Gothic.
Thanks! I remember the iron on letter and T-shirt booths in mall kiosks. I was hoping some one may know the name of the octagonal Machine knock-off font. I've seen a few on line with names like "Hockey font", "Rock It," and on this thread http://typophile.com/node/80815 but there are a few characters on the shirts which I can't find anything like (e.g. R, #, &). I'm still hoping.
I'm bumping this one last time in the hopes someone recognizes it.
