    I'm up in Sheffield UK and mine turned up at work while I was on leave last week. Scored the Camden II and i'm really happy with it. Would definitely take part in this again, it's been ace to read about what people have received.

    Sounds like the real mystery is going to be 'what happened to my poster tube delivery' then...urgh, think I may need to knock this merch stuff on the head and just be thankful for the 10c tickets from here on out. Disappointing once again after the Halloween Tshirt never made it and the drama that was Lightning Bolt vinyl. you'd think id have learnt by now. :(

    Again, I want to say that I am happy with the poster I received and the whole 'mystery' thing is the real fun part. This is a pic of the damaged part of the poster - is this to be expected on a 2000 poster and should be just attributed to age or is it significant. I truly don't know or I wouldn't be asking -

    Damaged area - right side watermarks? in brown area and above skateboarder/left slight marks in brown and horizontal line in brown area.

    Tough to see the damage in your print (small pci, my bad pc). A 14 year old print, some are gonna have some damage. I bet there are a ton of ppl who would trade for it, I wouldn't be surprised if you could get a print worth 100$ in return. Nice score btw.

    Wouldn't it be funny if the world ended in 2010, with lots of fire?

    Thank you very much! For your input and compliment on the poster. I'm definitely holding onto it and I now have two posters to seek (#2 & #3). I am starting to see how this whole poster acquisition 'thing' starts...... :bz

    I still need to post a pic of the damage so you guys can let me know if it's normal wear or not. Tomorrow I'll figure out why the upload isn't working for me today.

    I didn't mean to give you the wrong idea. I wouldn't say it's "normal" wear and tear. It's quite possible to have a poster that old and still have it be in mint condition. I just think that these were probably not necessarily kept in "ideal" conditions.

    I scored France 2006 the Mad what me worry George Bush poster. This is up for trade if anyone is interested. Enjoyed the anticipation of the mystery poster more than the actual poster. Would do it again given the chance.

    I had seen a post way back in this thread where someone had gotten a poster that had a crease or tear in it and they had it replaced by nugs/10C . When I saw the damage, which I think is more than just a little, I wasn't sure if I should ask for a replacement for a damaged poster or if I should just be happy I got something good. I don't know if there are even any more of this poster in the store; so I'd rather keep it with damage than get something else.

    I posted on here because of the knowledge and enthusiasm for poster collection that is evident and also because I'm new and not sure what the procedures are for things. I didn't want to seem ungrateful either because I know a lot of people are not thrilled with what they received. So you didn't give me the wrong idea at all. i just took the general tone of your post and a5pj's post as saying that the posters are probably not being kept in pristine conditions (I imagine 10C staffers chuckling as they look at the merchandise strewn about its' storage space) and it's been laying around for close to 14 years. It could have been laying underneath boxes for a decade for all I know.. And it's not like i paid massive $$ - so I figured take the positive angle - good poster in average condition, I'm not going to sell it and it's not life altering, so I'm satisfied.

    I appreciate everyone who took the time to give feedback and information. It is, in the end, just a poster. (distant sound of a collector gasping). Thanks. :)>-

    But I'm not sure that the posters I mentioned are undesirable ones that otherwise won't sell. They may not have ended up at the right persons with this mystery sale, but from what I gather from this thread, there's interest in them. And to my knowledge none of the posters that are still in the shop (and thus aren't selling) have showed up in this mystery sale.

    But that first part of your quote might be it, that they just withhold posters when their inventory is below a certain threshold, just so they can sell them in a mystery sale.

    The posters you mentioned are the gems that we all want! Those are the ones that make these sales happen. But there are posters in the store for example that will never sell. So the only way to unload them is in a blind draw like these mystery sales. Of course the quality of the art is truly in the eye of the beholder, regarding some of the undesirable ones. We all have different tastes for what we like.
    But the thing is, the posters that apparently never sell are not popping up in this mystery poster sale. And the ones I mentioned are apparently some recent gems (2009 and newer). So why not have those in the shop? Then PJ could've sold them sooner. They would have the money sooner and less space in their storage/warehouse.
    I think the mystery box was clearing out excess stock, but this mystery poster sale was more of a treat for the fans. Its no secret that they keep stock of lots of memorabilia no longer available in the shop, which is evident by the pop-up shops, etc.

    </blockquote

    A possible answer is "Drawdown" - a few posters are kept in reserve for lost or in-transit damage... Sometimes 10club needs to replace a damaged print - could you imagine Santos' headache if a few CrackerJacks were lost in the mail & he had nothing to offer ~
    That's probably why 10C poster sales sometimes sell out, & mystery tubes are specifically sold "as is".
    Wasn't looking too good but I was feeling real well...

    I saw that, everyone has their own opinion, it's ok. The poster is a little smaller then expected, thats all.
    Since Klausen is my favourite artist, i love all his prints, no exceptions.

    A few questions for all the AUSSIES in the house...

    *How did your Mystery Poster arrive? Australia Post or courier?
    *Was it a parcel sort of drop off or did you receive a little card in the letterbox to go collect at AusPost or depot?

    Mine hasn't arrived yet, received my shipping email on 14/07. The tracking numbers seem to be useless. What a MYSTERY right!?

    Mine just came through Aus post. Not sure it was left at the door. My wife was home so she may have collected it. It usually depends on the delivery driver. Mine generally leaves them at the door when no ones home. At my old house they would always drop the card of to collect and never leave packages when no one was home. Luck of the draw I guess but it definately doesn't come through a courier.
