someone correct me if i'm wrong but that is not an "original" terrible towel. i have one that was given to me by my father that was made in '75. it says "myron copes official the terrible towel" on it. before they were officially released the towels were just plain old towels.

My original that I got in 75 just says Terrible towel on it. And is a little bigger than the ones they sell today.

The one on WikiPedia looks like the one that I have, which I got back in 1976.

Does anyone know who manufactured the original. I know Gimbel's was the original retailer.

Here is mine...
