This past spring break, we drove from Chicago to Atlanta to visit family. On the way, we decided to take a short detour and go to the Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, AL (northeast corner of the state). I don't know how my wife heard about it, but seemed like an interesting diversion.
We weren't really planning there to buy anything specific, more to just browse. I decided that if there was anything related to Michigan, I'd buy it. Best bet seemed to be the vast t-shirt section (which I rummaged through right after electronics). I focused on the blue and yellow shirts, which were grouped in various spots through the expansive t-shirt area. After about 10 minutes of looking through the many, many racks of shirts (did I mention how big it was?), I was about to give up when I decided to go through that one last section of blue shirts. I had had a few false alarms with blue shirts and yellow graphics, but finally hit paydirt with this beauty:
Brand new, with tags, and even the correct size. I had never heard of Valiant brand, but this article in the Detroit News tells me it was created by John, Jack, and Jared Wangler and Ian Bunting and is relatively recent.
So, to whomever lost their bag and this shirt, thanks from the bottom of my heart. One of the best $6 investments I've ever made.
