    Mine is probably the same as a lot of people: Pittsburgh 13 poster. It’s the only show I went to that I don’t have the poster for.

    This post has been my lucky rabbits foot.

    Found one glow- now it’s onto the whole set of four glows as the goal.

    Yes, you’ve mentioned. Several times. :)

    debating the need for 4. Gotta have goals though...

    Bought one from the artist sale. Had to sell it a couples years later as I needed the cash to unexpectedly move closer to my son. Had to sell the Ames and Klausen too. Just got the Ames back 2 days ago thanks to a mystery box trade.
    Some day I'll get the whole set back.

    I know I'll get a Reeenk Roink eventually, but since they're unique, I'll always keep looking for another and another...

    It used to be seniority to the front rail.  People complained, band got sick of the same people every show whatever, then they initiated the "random lottery"  for 1 and 2 and the later rows.  Still straight up seniority in between and after.  Now we have the GA and lottery and seniority.

    Just bought my grail off eBay... the space needle promo postcard.
  • tschavtschav Posts: 1,825
    East Troy 98 poster - first show, settled for a multiple-date 98 poster to keep me from spending thousands on it.

    Band-signed Cubs World Series baseball ranks high up there too.

    My Grail would be Pearl Jam Vs/Vitalogy Collector's Edition.
    I know there are some on Discogs but the thing is heavy and shipping costs are expensive. I don't give up on it though so I'm still looking to acquire it.
    (pic found on Google)

    My husband found one for me at a local music resale shop.  For a very long time (we watched it) it was listed as $375. That was while it was still available here. They know him well and he happened to have been there the day they decided to just clear it out and get rid of it.  (After it was no longer available here.)  It didn't seem played and just like the Ten boxset that he purchased in the same way, none of the interior contents were even out of the wrapping.  He paid $75 for Ten and $100 for V/V.  None of those pesky shipping charges, either. :wink: 

    I had a friend keeping watch at another local record store for singles.  Someone turned in 15 annual singles.  I needed 13 of them.  Paid $100.  I don't think that they were even played.  Still missing three (not including the ones we are presently owed.)  I believe that Santa may have one for me, but my husband is still looking for the other two more difficult to find copies . . . We kind of aren't interested in going into debt for them, so they'll show up when they are supposed to.  

    Hang in there.  You may be surprised what you can find.  Make friends with your local record store owners.  I find that they are thrilled to find a good home for lovelies like these.  
    The vinyl in these sets apparently sounds awful - avoid at all costs. Get the original LP. These sets are way overpriced

    Silly question- why is the Benny vinyl in such demand? 
    only 2000 (plus some promo and "friends of the band" ones) were pressed. and that was 15 years ago. Back then, the price tag was $40 for the entire box. I passed on it because of the shipping charge to canada, which probably doubled the price to a whopping $80 US. 

    doesn't matter. I don't have the patience to wait to sell for maximum gain. I would have let it go once it hit $150. :lol:

    $40 and it sat for a couple days too I think, before selling out.
    It wasn’t $40, it was $30, as far as I can remember 

  • This is mine as well. I was supposed to go, ended up cancelling last minute, always regretted it. I have the ticket stub (in mint) still. If anyone has it let me know, can work something.

    I’ve been lucky over the years with a lot of help from great people on this forum.
    Only thing I need at this point is a red lightning bolt vinyl.

    Thanks again everybody! :)
    Have those even been offered for sale as of late?
    Not that I know of but I’d be interested in trade or sale if its reasonable.
