Some people charge ridiculous prices for picks. I mean sure they're rare, but their actual value is pennies. The value of being a used pick by a band isn't that high. I'd never buy any.

It looks like Shifty in it and it is his color but I'm not sure. there was another "joke" DG one that I was shown and really wanted but no go. it was the dark grey but said something else.

I still never got the red white and blue ones!!!! I have so many from over the years. The Foo crew is always very nice about getting me handfuls of them!

The White ESPG picks that I have must be so rare. I have a ton and have never seen them anywhere. 100 % real

The fake ones are usually easy to tell apart, they look cheap and nasty.

I was wondering how much the white ESPG full set would go for but haven't seen many around. Like I said though, I know they were real and not those fake one you see one ebay.
It looks like Shifty on the bottom half but the top half looks bald! Never seen the white ones on ebay.Simon is right about the fakes they always look cheaper than the real ones.You are lucky about the road crew giving you picks! I have to resort to ebay as I don't seem to get near to any crew to ask!

I'd like to see all of your FF pick collection.

I have one black on white pick from the set but the print is very bad and resembles the prints of other black on white picks from other bands that were being sold by someone on Ebay several years ago. All those picks were fakes / self-printed picks however.

I've been collecting picks for years now and trade a lot. Fellow collectors have told me they have not seen the black on white picks at shows and I even heard from one of the Foo techs that there was never a set of the black on white ones made for the tour.

So I hope you can shed some light on the possible authenticity or not of the picks.

Cheers,
Jaap

Glad I found this thread, I am an avid guitar pick collector, and my main focus is of course on Foo picks. Nice collection Emily. My collection can be seen here:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...4&l=1cccfd2565

I have a couple of fake/fan made picks among my collection, and I know Emily is the resident foo pick expert, but if any of you have questions about any legitimacy to ones you come across, feel free to ask me as well. Happy Pick Collecting for those that do.

Brandon

I had heard/saw that Dave had new ones, but not that Nate did. My "little birdie" told me that the rest of the guys were not going to be getting new ones, because they just didn't care about designing new ones. PM me if you want more details on my source, and if you have any other Pick news for me.

Again, sounds like Chris' pick.

Is Pat the one that uses the Parrot one? That's the one I caught down at the Anaheim show.

I've gotten a few of them in the past (none of which differ from the ones in the pic above), but I also have a really huge white triangular pick that I believe Nate used, which is an interesting one in the collection.
