What is your Holy Grail for PJ collecting?

People throw around the term "Holy Grail" for things all the time but what is your true Grail? 

What is the one thing that's eluded you?  

What is that item that is too expensive and out of reach?

Post on here and maybe someone has it sitting in a closet and will trade it to you?

Maybe someone knows someone with that Grail you are looking for?

I'll try to cut and paste everyone's items so that they are in one place.

Happy Hunting!!!

    Always really wanted the 'Let Me Sleep' fan club 7". It's the only one I don't have but always seem to miss them when they come up.

    Mine would be the Mark 5 PJ20 Poster Convention trading card poster

    It would be cool to have a photo of me and my wife meeting Ed.  I think that would look really sweet amongst my collection.  
    Another holy grail would be seeing PJ in Italy.
    Tangible item: something signed by the entire band.  I have individual signatures but not all five on one item.
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    Yeah, sure would.
    I have a client that had it on their wall for years @ their HQ.  When we helped them renovate the building they took it down.  Told them I would donate a grand to their leading charity and they declined, put it back up.  They had dozens of old school items like that and wanted to keep intact.  :lol:

    I recently obtained my grail and thought I would share.

    Chris Robinson - the destruction of cities by space vehicles (live in paris) 2LP Vinyl ( issued in 2002).

    Story on this one was only 30-50 copies ever made it out to see the light of day. Company went bankrupt right at release time. Records were pulled back off the shelves but a couple employees grabbed some and that's how we ended up with the very limited amount. Discogs currently only shows that 5 people own it. So who knows if 30-50 even exist any more. Anyway, I paid $450 for my mint copy and couldent be happier.

    Ed to sign my Cubs/Indians World Series Game 7 ticket stub.

    One of those sweet ass Ukes or Telecasters with Ed's signature, handwritten lyrics and dragon waves would be bad ass too.

    If there is a way for you to find where to mail that stub and shared that it was a grail I am sure he would dig signing that. 
    If he does a solo tour you could bring and then join the stalkers outside the place post-gig and ask him.  Seems like something Ed would think was awesome.

    Not going to pay $300 for Lost Dogs because the minute I do, it will be reissued, but Lost Dogs vinyl is the only PJ related thing that I don't have that makes me a sad panda.

    Pearl Jam Live at Benaroya Hall on vinyl.

    Figured I'd see this more.

    Mirror Ball on vinyl would be nice, too, but there are so many counterfeits of this one out there. I never trust any listings enough to actually buy one.
