I even had the t-shirt.... but, that was worn out years before!

Proud owner of the Boxes, the t-shirt and the beret here. I bought them from a Southern Brazilian guy who bought it directly from Zappa. I also have a YAWYI framed poster that came along with it. From this same guy, I got BTB I and II on vinyl too...

Ok the Beret belong to BTB I, I guess...
