Do you have a favorite Tiger basketball t-shirt from the past 100 years? Do you have a great story to go along with that t-shirt? These are questions the Pink Palace Museum is asking Memphis Tiger basketball fans. The Pink Palace Museum will be featuring fan t-shirts in the Pink Palace’s upcoming Tiger Hoops: 100 Years of Memphis Basketball exhibit to be on display March 7 to October 4, 2020.
The Museum is asking Memphis Tiger basketball fans to bring their favorite Tiger basketball t-shirt to the Museum on Sunday, July 28 from noon to 4 pm for Tiger Hoops Community Involvement Day. A free general admission pass will be given to those who bring in a Memphis Tiger basketball t-shirt. One free general admission pass per person.
Not all fan t-shirts will be displayed in the museum exhibit, yet images of every t-shirt submitted will appear online on the exhibit’s website. T-shirts that do go on display will be on loan to the museum from July 28, 2019 until October 9, 2020.
