University of Memphis fans contribute Tigers t-shirts to Pink Palace Museum for new exhibit

Local News

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – The Pink Palace Museum is giving fans of the Memphis Tigers an opportunity to put their fandom on display in a whole new way.

The museum offered free admission to anyone who stopped by and dropped off a Memphis Tigers t-shirt for their new exhibit. Each shirt was photographed and will either be included in the exhibit or posted on the museum’s website.

 “I’m dropping off a couple t-shirts for my brother who is a collector of Memphis Tigers’ t shirts and happened to have these old shirts one belonged to him and one belonged to a friend. I believe it was her father’s, and she dug it out of an attic and gave it to him as a gift and he wanted to have someone else appreciate them as much as he does,” said Anna Lockwood.

The exhibit, which will be called “Tiger Hoops: 100 Years of Memphis Basketball,” opens to the public in March of 2020.
