Default Rare list/ Want list

I know this is old, but let's give this another go since we got our own little place on this board now

List the top 5 of your collection, and then the top 5 of your most wanted items.

Either Foo or Foo related.

Please keep it to cd's, lp's, cassette, posters etc. So no water bottles Taylor threw at you, or autograph Dave put on your bottom ;-) However cool this may be.

I'll start:


Rarest:

Top 5

Pocketwatch (holy grail)
Probot - Centuries of Cin (1/2 red 1/2 black 7" vinyl) [limited to 90]
In Your Honor (Instrumental promo 2cd) [quantity unknown]
Mission Impossible - Thanks (7" vinyl) [Limited to 500]
Dain Bramage - I Scream Not Coming Down (12" vinyl) [quantity unknown]


Want:

Top 5

The One (7") (I know, it's in good hands, but still ;-)
I'll Stick Around (cassette)
Learn To Fly (cassette)
Long Road To Ruin (7" Test Press)
The Colour and the Shape (cassette promo)


Let's hear yours!

I'm guessing these will be on many lists.

They are so impossible to get, that you can hardly consider it collectable. On a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the hardest to get, these are a 10 I guess.

Yep almost on all lists i guess. Im with you there with a 10 on that scale. I would love to just stumble on a copy of any of the different releases in hopes of someone just not wanting them anymore...

I am hoping with the right amount of money some people can be tempted out of their The One copies. It's my life's ambition!

If I win the lottery or get fortunate any other way, I'd offer £10k for each. I just can't see how anyone could turn that down other than to piss me off and try and get more cash out of me lol!

Default Re: Rare list/ Want list

Also, I have no idea what my wants vs rares are.

When I started collecting about 10 years ago there was a whole bunch of stuff I'd have added to both lists but this time around, they've been really easy to get hold of and I haven't paid much for them. I've probably crossed off most of my top 10 list from 2001 in the last 2 months. Weird huh?!

Maybe it's a personal thing how rare something is or even it's as simple as what country you're in and what country the item is in and how it moves around over a ten year period.

For absolute rare, I'd say anything that alban78 has that nobody else has. I think he makes them himself...

My top 5:

Pocketwatch tape
The One 7"
Miracle Promo
TCATS UK vinyl
Exhausted 12" promo

That's just off the top of my head, I kinda forget what I have these days!

Wanted:
I don't do Foo-related just Foos, so...

IYH Instrumental promo 2cd
The japan vinyl cd re-issue things!
OBO DVD-A

Other than these it's really just stuff I haven't got round to in recent years, non-rare stuff that I just can't really justify spending on at the mo.

With regard to my The One, I was actually having a conversation about it the other day and concluded that the only way I would ever sell it was if the price got me a deposit on a nice house... so no go on 10k lol! I probably still wouldn't sell even then tho!

Why is The One vinyl so rare? I haven't collected in years so I don't know that story.

Well I suppose if I had a few million I could offer £50k or so. Isn't that like a days interest? Chump change!

my top items are not THAT top because it's still a small collection, but they're special all the same.

my wanted list is VERY modest too, mainly because it's the stuff I want first to build up a bigger collection, then I'll will be on the Pocketwatch onwards kind of list.

top 5

- Inédits
- Learn to Fly 7"
- Stacked Actors Australian single
- Live in Holland pt. 1
- TCATS advanced promo cd

most wanted:

- 1x1 Norwegian Edition
- Everlong 7"
- The One standard single
- Live in Holland pt.2

Yes it is! If you mean the 7"

To all you collectors: Maybe we should have a "Ask about FF releases thread"? And try to get it sticky

totally agree, this is a very common topic that people will keep needing to ask more info to other collectors, more or less experienced, It think it's totally worth a sticky.

I can't think of special things I have even though I have almost all CDSingles from ST to OBO.

Rare:
-Generator CD (just 'coz it' limited )
-Live from Holland 2CDS digipak

Want:
-Have it All CDS (I swear I STOPPED buying FF singles when this came out, stupid me, who would've known)
-Exhausted w/Winnebago, because in my "hardcore" collector phase I really wanted this but never got it.
