Michael Jackson fans wanting to show their devotion to the late pop star on a T-shirt have plenty of choices in Detroit.

At least a dozen vendors hawked Jackson T-shirts outside the midtown museum where Jackson's memorial service was broadcast live from Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon.

Some of the shirts are stacked under tents. Others are piled on folding tables. Some vendors simply are strolling around shouting out the prices and showing off the designs.

Prices appear to range from the $3 being asked by Jonathan Contreras of Westland to $20 by Kitty Walker, a cosmetologist from Detroit. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
