Is This Guy Famous Or What?

McGirtFatiqueShirt_260x260

Jack McGirts's fatigue shirt was recently seen on Ebay.
How famous was Jack ? Did he perform an amazing maintenance fix on a Hound Dog ?
Did he fly a Hound Dog ? 
What did this guy Do ? Is he really worth $14.99 ?

Chuck Barrett says:
Jack was not famous he was a ladies man and left a few swooning Blytheville Lasses with broken hearts when he got out and went home. Was he worth $14.99 ? Not to you or I but those women thought he was worth a million.
