One of your favorite Memphis Tigers basketball T-shirts may soon be on display in the Pink Palace Museum.

The museum is seeking such T-shirts and your stories behind them as it prepares to celebrate 100 years of Tiger basketball.

Pink Palace’s “Tiger Hoops: 100 Years of Memphis Basketball” exhibit featuring those shirts be on display March 7 to Oct. 4, 2020, according to a release.

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 p.m. for Tiger Hoops Community Involvement Day.
