    I saw that, and I'm in the same position you are in.  More power to them because that's a hard one to find.

    It was tough to fork over that much but I am hoping to sell it for 5k in a year or two.

    Was that really you?  It shows "Unsold".  
    Did you make a deal outside of eBay with the seller?

    I only see his Alpine 98 now and don't see any of his completed listings on there at all, for some reason.

    $3,000.00 for a concert poster is obsurd
  • tommy boytommy boy United StatesPosts: 445
    I actually purchased some Amazzzinnng Reproductions of said poster  on heavy stock paper from "SCHMamazon" last year because I , like you, wanted one for my collection, then posted  the others on SCHmebay  but got shut down by the Gustapo... Ask Shumway, I believe I gave him a freebee in Good Diplomatic Ties to strengthen US/Canada relations a while back...LOL....Then there was the fake pitt that was allowed...

    To be fair it's a collector's item.  Collector's item's are generally out of wack with reality :)

    There's only so many Yield tour posters that survived thumbtacks, horrible frames, and 20 years of moving around.   Back then no one knew the would become collector's items.  Take all the survivors and them subtract how many of them live in collections where they'll never be sold.  Only leave so many.  If you saw a tour in '98 and you really want the poster.   You either live without or compete on price with a number of other people who want the same thing.

    Except we haven't seen one sell for that much yet. A couple have sold for a lot but not 3k. Just more exercises in artificial inflation.

    If someone is willing to pay for it, end of story.  I have just five posters from shows that I just really liked the posters and shows, only 1 is really "valuable" - Ward S Randalls Island 1996.  The others Jones Beach 2000, Albany 2003, MSG 2003 and Ottawa 2005 are ones I just really clicked with.  

    In 1998 when I toured I just did not want to be carrying around a poster every night, I liked Barrie ok, liked Pitt ok, loved the Cleveland, was meh on Camden and the NY/NJ poster.   I thought I will see if someone has an extra sometime or pick up off tenclub newsletter when they used to sell APs that way.  I got lazy.  Then it got crazy, I was never going to spend more than 4x the show price for a poster.  

    But shit, if someone has the cash to burn on a collectible is what it is.

    True, it is crazy, but that's what you get when one pops up for sale after a few months to a year.  Especially if someone has been searching for years.

    Not artificial when demand far exceeds supply.

    Artificial in the sense that people are reporting on or discussing sales that never occurred
