AMES Mystery Poster Question and One to Trade

gvilliangvillian Old Forge, PAPosts: 110
Received the print below in the recent Ames mystery sale- not looking to sell/trade, just for any info.  Looks like the one 2017 EV but without concert info?  Does Ames do this- I feel like I’ve seen others from them that have art from a show poster but no show info?  Thanks for any help.

Gotta say I feel a bit wamboozled by this sale - the promo (from e-mail) really made it seem like the prints were PJ-related and there was some type of “minimum guaranteed value” (not that I care about this, just adds to the confusion about what I got).  It is what it is.

Also got the TOTD ‘16 Seattle SE S/N (out of 330) - this one I would be willing to trade if anyone were looking for it.

    I was also pumped about their sale only to be disappointed. I'm sorry I can't help with your info request but I'm confident you are in the right place for the answers you are seeking. mL

    I agree. I didn’t get a single PJ print in my tube.

    Got the same 2 posters in my tube. Should have known better. No PJ posters in my tube. From what I have seen on Facebook 90 percent of the mystery tubes are mostly junk that there is no way they could get rid of any other way.

    Is that the mystery poster that they included with every tube that was exclusive to the mystery tube drop?

    No- the bonus print was a roughly 5x5’, kinda abstract piece if I were categorizing it.  Will post a photo once I’m home next.

    I don't see a thread to post Ames Mystery tube posters.  Maybe this could be it?

    From all reports, it looks like losing the contents of my cart because my phone number was not there (non mandatory field from memory) wasa bit of a blessing. I woke up early through the night, ensured all details up to date, but at checkout wanted a phone number arghh....

    Is there anything on the back side of your poster?

    No, there does not appear to be anything on the back.

    how people had high expectations for these tubes is baffling - when you play the lottery do you expect to win? ;)
  • HendonesiaHendonesia Posts: 85
    As someone who religiously plays the lottery, you do realize it only takes once?

    Does that blink poster glow in the dark? I think might.

    I haven't tested it but I think so.  It's definitely the best of the bunch.

    Wow look who decided To come back to the forum. You gonna be a man and pay me that $200 you owe me now or are you gonna be a little  coward and go hide on Facebook again?
