Didn't think it would happen so fast but good folks here hooked me up with a great deal in just a few days!
--------------------------------------
Please bear with me on the boring personal story before I get to the important point, but I have something to celebrate and I'm hoping you can help! 

I was getting.... big.  And I tried for years to get the effing weight off but I just couldn't make it happen. Then something clicked. My reward for achieving my goal of going from 275lbs to under 200 (and no longer medically obese) would be that after years of dreaming and watching charity auctions pass by I would finally get myself a show poster that had been signed by the whole band. Ok, not really - my motivation was truly getting healthy so that I could keep up with my young kids and live to see them grow up - but I would ALSO get my formerly fat fingers on that poster that I have been dreaming of and saving space on a wall for. I started eating right and working out on January 1st, 2021.

And I did it! On December 23rd (coincidence that it was Ed's birthday?) I weighed in at 199.6. SO, I'm hoping someone here can help me get that poster for my wall!

ISO a band-autographed Pearl Jam show poster.  My only conditions are that it needs to have at least some reasonable assurance if not proof of authenticity, AND (here's where I get picky) it needs to be a late-model EV signature with the E that looks like the Epiphone guitar E.  That has to be where he got it from, right?


I'm ready to pay up, don't have a stockpile of whalez to trade but anything in my poster collection is fair game as part of a deal.  I do have a '96 Merriweather Post Pavillion, BUT it's got tons of tack holes, and sin of all sins....... is dry mounted. But already matted and framed nicely and it looks great.  I know, I know - it was 1996 and I was a dumb college kid. Anyway, my collection is up on Expresso Beans (https://expressobeans.com/members/collections.php?id=12224) and I'm there as bostonmurphy but NO, I am not Boston Lou or related to Boston Lou, I know nothing of this Boston Lou other than his reputation here!  Eff that guy, whatever he did.

Alright, thank you if you have read this far.  Let me know if you have leads or can help in any way!

    Don’t have a poster to sell. But congrats. I dropped 51 lbs about 6 years ago, it’s life changed. Enjoy it.

    Congrats - I dropped 80 last year, too. Feels fucking good, eh?! Said I'd get myself Lost Dogs if I ever did. ... should have saved the money to do so as I exercised.

    And hopefully someone helps you out!

    I did. Unfortunately the one Brane has left has the "old school" EV signature but thanks for your efforts to help!
  • Big congrats as that's a big accomplishment!  It is definitely worthy of a Big Boy poster. You will find one, but from what I've seen lately it could be costly but worth every cent, cheers and keep up the great work.

    Congrats @JM70350 - amazing accomplishment!  I'm trying to be healthier too in 2022, not only for me, but for my family / kids.  Clean living!  I have a band-signed "Off Ramp" that I might consider parting with.  It's professional framed and gorgeous - have a look: https://www.collectionzz.com/danlee1095/pearl-jam-eddie-vedder-items/pearl-jam-seattle-2020-ames-design-signed-edition-1

    if interested, we can discuss pricing, etc.  I suppose the only caveat is that Boom has not signed it.  I can provide authenticity too - there are only 50 of these in existence.  Thanks!
