Led Zeppelin crisscrossed North America from Minneapolis to Madison Square Garden in early winter, 1975, visiting the West Coast in March. Performing on Swan Song, Zeppelin was enjoying an all-time high of popularity after lying fallow 1974, and planned an even larger tour for late summer. What should have been a superb year for the band ended abruptly in August when Robert Plant was seriously injured in a car accident.
This rare baseball shirt carries the celebrated Swan Song record label artwork created by British design firm, Hipgnosis. Firmly associated with the band's persona, the icon was later reproduced by the firm in a new piece that recalled Led Zeppelin's finest days in 1979 and their live concert appearances in the U.K. at Knebworth House.
