The Best Place to Buy Unlicensed $5 San Francisco Giants T-Shirts is at the 19th and Judah 76 Station?

[Area resident M. has the deets:

"Ha. I live on 19th right across Judah from this. It's totally an ongoing business, it's been there every day, all day since right after the world series last year and I have no idea how they haven't gotten busted just because it's so brazen and regular. I've actually seen a water department truck blocking the 28 bus stop in front of the gas station while the two dudes were shopping for t-shirts and the bus was trying to find a way to pull over and pick people up. It does tend to screw up traffic right there with so many people trying to pull over/pull in, so it's definitely a bit annoying. I have to assume the gas station owner gets a cut or something."]

This sure seems to be a good place to buy Giants shirts for cheap.

Now, I’m talking about the 76 gas station way out in the West Bay* what’s on the east side of 19th Ave. on Judah (and not the carbon copy 76 on the west side of 19th.)

And my buddy showed me a shirt he got there that wasn’t licensed.

And yesterday, they had a sign up what said, “$5 T-Shirts.”

Here’s the view from Google Maps Street View from a while back…

And here’s the scene from yesterday: 

(Is this an ongoing bidness? Does the gas station owner get a piece of this action as well?)

Now I didn’t stop to check things out or nothing, but, well, you tell me if you think I’m jumping to conclusions.

*You know, the Sunset District, but I’ve heard 19th Ave. being described part of the Inner Sunset, the Middle Sunset, and the Outer Sunset so I don’t know…
