One of the best decisions I made in my young poster career was buying that for $100 the day after the show. I thought at the time it was an obscene amount to spend on a poster.
Yes, they were available. I purchased one. Every print was made in an edition of 100. The Kong print was $500. The others ranged in price from $250 to $450 from what I recall. There were probably only 50 people lined up when the gallery opened and I was in the middle of the line. I bought the 3rd Kong print that was sold I think. It seemed that most people were buying the stickers and pins and stuff. I think the size of these prints was intimidating to purchase for most people. I wanted some of the other prints, but yeah, the size was intimidating to 1) frame and 2) figure out a space to hang it. I had always wanted the Kong print since the first time I saw it after the show, so I was pleasantly surprised I had the opportunity to buy such an awesome version of it. The tubes they provided were comically large. I think they were 6 inch diameter and about 4 feet long. I had to ship it back to my house since I was visiting from out of town. I should get it back in hand on Friday.

Remember back in the day when the Ten Club would send a mailer out with posters for $20-$35?

I picked up almost all of the 1998 tour posters from those mailers. I marked the boxes next to the prints I wanted and sent them a check in the mail. Good investments. ;)

The Kong has always been at the top of my ISO list but they go for stupid prices on eBay when they pop up.

It's my favorite poster I have framed up by a longshot. Those XLs looks great but I definitely would never be able to hang a gigprint that big in my house, ha.

Any posters officially sell out for good?

"We usually sell posters from a tour some time after the tour is over. I don't have any specific information regarding the sale of recent tour posters.
Check in at Pearljam.com periodically for updates on Ten Club exclusives.
Thanks

Yes, they are signed, numbered, and embossed with the Ames Bros logo.

Looks like I got the 2XL version of the kong print added to the database. I'll have to work on the others that were sold at the show, but I don't have the dimensions or prices for them.

I know this is a long shot but figured I'd try the Pearl Jam thread...

I'm looking for a S/N Ames Lauderdale 96. It was my first Pearl Jam show, and for nostalgic reasons now (23 shows later) I'd love to get a framed copy up on my walls. Lots for trade (though not much PJ). Also willing to pay cash.

Thanks. :pint:

The MAGA asshat reaction on the Facebook to Jeff's poster is something else. Check out the official Pearl Jam post with the poster. Never knew there were so many racist inbred Pearl Jam fans.

Also, dat belongs in the melthunters thread.

P.S. Weird that it took a poster for those outraged die hard fans to realize what PJ's political views are.

lol, those are people mostly just coming out of the woodwork to support MAGA . . . if they've been fans for 25 years and only today realize what PJ's politics are because of a poster, they were never really fans. . . they just owned Ten and listened to them when their local Classic Rock station played Jeremy.

I love the "you just lost 1/2 your fan base!" comments . . . more like 33%, maybe if they're going by Trump-support.

I just think the poster looks like trash regardless of whatever message they try to get across. It's just poorly done.
