Foo Fighters Sonic Highways Australian Sony Promo CD

wasn't me, I decided $25 was a nice limit to not win it on

and really nice key, would be great for any collection.

Flag: http://shop.foofighters.com/products...ways-wall-flag
Puzzle: http://shop.foofighters.com/products...ighways-puzzle

And so on.

They also have some of the full boxes again

http://shop.foofighters.com/products...ys-mega-bundle
That is interesting - the mega sets were up on the store for a long time. I think there was a break for a short time then they were back and stayed back for ages. I'm guessing they almost certainly made some new boxes to address the latch issue, but still there probably were around 2000.

These ones now will be leftover boxes, flags & puzzles that exceed what they deem needed to cover any issues with the final set sales - and thats's it, the run is ended.

So from here we can expect the slow price increase on eBay as it becomes the main place to still find one.

But for now...

I forgot to post this - only 12 hours left and only one bid so far at the $200 start price:

Foo Fighters Sonic Highways Mega Bundle Lot 8 Sealed LPs

These are the original site US first press records all sealed.

Plus 2HD 45

www.ebay.com/itm/131761663743

So if you were missing them - this is the whole deal complete.

Edit:
I tell a lie - it's actually missing one - the centre Forever cover version. Pretty close though.

Yeah - it's real, the stick on parts match other AUS promos and I also know the seller from other purchases, but wow how times have changed when it comes to promo CDs. Literally anyone can make that CD - so it's a AUS $71 piece of ahhm... cardboard.

I recently accquired the poster from the Them Crooked Vultures gig I went to in Plymouth in 2009!
I had looked at it on the merch stand as I went in and when I came out...silly me,I left it there! Well,on St.Patrick's Day of this year,I stumbled across another TCV poster(Brian O Connor benefit gig in Brixton) 44/200 for the bargain price of Ģ5! Checking things out online I ended up looking through a list of TCV items for sale and there it was!Never thought I'd come across it and it is mint!

Literally Massive - 60" posters are something else on a wall

This is really a very guilty pleasure - I took a fair bit of advice on this over the years because I didn't know for sure it really was a true 1995 print. Once I knew it was (around 2002) you need to find one, then you need to feel it's real. Seller has a number at the size - and you have to study the other prints to see they are selling them at many different prices - some waay higher. That says hey we probably aren't just knocking these off on a press. Then look at why some are higher and try and confirm yep those are really sought after. Then see they are selling so many posters at so many diff sizes and prices they fall in the "just no way they could be bothered to make any of them" category.

Then look at feedback. Then go back to the listing and go shit if that's as real as all that investigation makes it look then that's actually crazy cheap. Then bid hoping it gets looked at as just another original 95 18x24" No1 promo like it looks in the picture to those people whose brain hasn't exploded when they saw the number 60 in the wording because they've been looking for it for so long...

Collecting is stoopidly simple

Unhappy Re: Your latest Foo item?!

Whats up fellow collectors? Long time no post.

Ive bought a house. Nice. The not so nice part is money is running short. The only thing i have thats any value is my Foo collection. The hockeycards didnt pay off... Damn you Wayne Gretzky... The options are the following:

1. Sell my family. This will likely get me into all sorts of legal trouble
2. Rob a bank. Again legal troubles...
3. Convince someone rich do donate me money. Since i dont know any rich people so i have to resolve to stalking people which again will likely get me into legal trouble...
4. Write a book how to earn easy money. Again down the road someone will probably sue me for false advertising.
5. Sell my Foo Fighters collection. Could get me into legal trouble when im trying to steal it back...

This isnt a easy decision but many long hard hours of pondering i have decided to sell it all. Im really gutted about this. I do not want to sell it but i need to. Actually i just cried a little about it. And i probably will not ever get it back either. The last few years my total time scouring the interwebs is probably 30 minutes in total. So i guess with sadness my collecting days are over. (Just for the moderators im not selling it here and please do not send me any PMīs about wanting to buy it. I will not reply here.) So im asking for help.

Should i try to sell it all in one lot or should i break it up? Breaking it up will likely earn me a lot more money but its gonna take a lot of time administrating everything which is time i dont have since im gonna need it all to renovate my house. Or should i give bankrobbing another go?

AGAIN IM NOT SELLING IT HERE IM ONLY ASKING ADVICE!

It depends if someone will buy the whole lot at once, for that they will probably have suddenly of become an uber fan. Would of thought you would get more for selling individually?It will probably move quicker too.You are going to have to catalogue everything either way anyway.

I would break it up, its a good day work making photos and list them.You get more money ' i think' then in one lot. Its up to you if you want to spend time for that. What is your target €1000? Best thing is not to sell, but renovate your house with your foo stuff. But i can understand there is more in life than collecting , i'm thinking of selling my acetate test promo best of you.i don't want it but i can use the money also for my house.
