    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.

    Yeah, I have no idea what this is, lol.

    Signed/numbered 1996 EMEK Charlotte poster.  This one is hard to come by, but not impossible.

  • Seattle set list shirt night 2 size medium or large (2018).
    Chicago set list shirt night 1 size medium or large (2018). 

    I don’ have anything to trade. I just started collecting in the last couple of years and love everything I have. It didn’t dawn on me that I should purchase multiples!!

    can I ask a dumb question? Why do people reply with “ bump”? I am also new to this forum. 

    Thanks!

    I was fortunate to find the Ten Collector's Edition on some website, a man from Belgium sold it to me at €160, it was a perfect deal. I live far from the biggest cities of my region and we don't have local record stores in my lost little corner of France. I still have faith I'll find the Vs/Vitalogy one but not where I live. I know I'll find it someday. I keep hope alive and cross fingers!!

    Open a record store so that you have one!  :smile:  

    Good luck with tracking this down.  It will come to you when it is meant to.  It's how we play the game at our house.

    This was something very cool to see at the MoPoP exhibit this year. I would have to reference my pictures, but there was an instance where Ed, writing a song, was using red pen, and the next verse was in blue pen. So he obviously needed a break, and when he returned to the process, grabbed a different pen.

    Mine is a copy of Give Way.  I know it's not the full show, and there's good bootlegs of the entire Australian show, but the audio quality of give way is amazing, and the fact best buy tried to destroy them all is also amazing.   Would love to acquire one the remaining copies :)

    You are out of luck as Stone only pisses gallons.

    Mike's '59 LP or Strat. Either would do the trick...

    There’s an aged McCready 59 on reverb.com right now with a $7000 asking price.  One of the lowest prices I’ve seen for that guitar since they came out in 2016.  (No affiliation with the seller, just a fan of Les Pauls, and the McCready in particular)
