Working for a Percentage?

A friend of my husband's father is contacting me about making a image for a union tshirt. They're offering me 5% of each sale as payment.

This makes me uncomfortable since I have no idea how much they'll sell, what kind of payment I'll receive (paypal, check etc) and they're planning on selling the shirts for 30$, which I don't see as very successful.

My husband though, thinks I'm not seeing how much I could be making from this since there's thousands of people in a union.

Am I right for preferring a lump sum (I'd take 200$) over 5%?

Thanks for the advice!
