    Wrecked. That stinks! If you see another on ebay try to see if it's your stolen one. I wouldn't think many fans would want to sell this. Maybe bust a criminal if possible. Unlikely but who knows.

    I am sorry your item was stolen.  I lost a valuable item during Encore weekend.  Someone gave me a great perspective:  imagine if 12 months ago before there were vaccine trial results someone would have told me I’d be able to see live shows in 09/21 but I would have to part with the item in order to make that possible.  Would I have made the deal? Yup.

    I used to work for Marriott. They have a claims department. If you want anything done, you're going to have to be patient & follow the process they lay out for you when you contact the resort.
    Ask for a manager & explained what happened - don't assign blame, just lay out what you KNOW, and how it's affecting you. Don't use foul language, or raise your voice - you'll get nothing.
    You'll have to be patient, but it's worth putting in the work. This was arguably something worth 7k. After this is all done, get another Eddie signed item on the bay, or some such. But for now, sleep it off. Tomorrow, time to make some calls & start the process.

    Yes it was worth 7K to me, WITH the poster :(      Sorry to be so bummed out but dang.  How can people be so cruel and greedy?  
    Deleted because I got feedback that my post saying I've also lost a tube of posters, so actually understand that feeling, and suggesting the original poster has a lot to be grateful for, and suggested putting it in perspective of the last 2 years might help him move on... was callous and might make ski_fast feel bad.  So, deleted.

    So, you got the tube with no ends and only one poster inside? I can see where you're coming from because it would be hard to explain why there is only one poster in the tube. It's not likely one of them fell out on accident. You say the tube looks like it had been run over, does the poster still in the tube have any damage to it?

    Thank you. You were polite saying not likely. NOT POSSIBLE is the term here. This didn’t come from the Ritz end because the PO wouldn’t have accepted an inclosed run over tube with no caps. So now it’s only a PO issue. Seems fishy as fuck to me. 30 signed copies and as a PJ crazy that knows the value of all their shit you allow the hotel to “take care” of it. Not buying this BS. The people crying oh no are the ones that will give away their livelihood when they are old to the same scam bullshit

  • So sorry to hear this, what a fucking bummer. I was pissed off when USPS lost my Baltimore poster and was told there was no replacement stock This is 1000x worse. Condolences

    Maybe I missed it in with all of these posts but why was keeping it with you in the tube and travelling with it not an option?

    Pretty messed up that someone not only potentially stole the poster, but then damaged the tube to make it obvious something was up! 
    Why would Fed Ex not seal the tube endings back on if they came off? 
    Terrible service all round 👎🏻

    JH6056, no harm done.  I do try to look on the bright side but I have had a lot of things stolen in my life.  Cash, a mint Gibson Les Paul Custom and Marshall amp, my Audi S4, a Marantz 2270 receiver, a Carver receiver and more.   To steal from a brother or sister is evil.   
    Are all of these separate incidents? If so, what are you doing that sets you up to have things taken from you so often?

    I'm still wondering about this as well. Stealing posters that aren't even signed happens all the time, so people messing with valuable ones seems so likely. I didn't get why he didn't carry them if they meant this much to him...

    To be honest I would have never let it leave my sight.  

    I’ve taken rare vinyl and posters as carryon before many times.   On the rare time I shipped something to myself I added insurance (it was only a $100 poster).  
  • HughFreakingDillonHughFreakingDillon HeadstoniaPosts: 28,173
    victim blaming is a pretty bad take.

  • My signed copy made it fine on carry on. Also did not let it leave my sight.

    Not blaming, but instead relaying how I try to take care of my own stuff.  I’ve had the Usps and ups turn 3 day shipping into 3 week shipping for rare PJ stuff.  

    I know people with incredible collections who only ship posters in legit pipes.  Doesn’t stop theft but should stop the damage from these people launching it around and crushing tubes.  Insurance is a must tho, especially on a $1,000 signed EV poster.  

    Really the only way to limit theft as much as you can is to carry it with you.  There’s always going to be scumbags out there.  More and more of the public are aware of what’s a collectible these days.  We see it at every merch line with folks who couldn’t name a single Pearl Jam song.  It sucks but you can’t trust the hotel employee that knows PJ is in town or the curious person at FedEx looking for opportunities.  Insure that stuff.
