I actually got a tip off on instagram for a change, and was able to grab a couple of items before they evaporated (in under 5 minutes).  They had a couple of autographed posters--the Neil Anatomy Of A Drum Solo one went fastest (also pricey for a poster!!), the R30 poster signed by all 3 members was cheaper and hung around longer, they had a Rush ReDiscovered box signed by Alex and Geddy (also pricey), a Tie Dye from Geddy's dryers with an R40 duffel, a big show of hands bundle--all gone.  They still have a BTLS poster (unsigned) and a copy of the Newsletters bound book w/a promo CD.

I just got the R30 poster and the duffle/tie dye and passed on the big ticket items.  Love Neil but $400 for an autographed poster is a lot when the other one is $100 and has all three autographs on it.

Where on instagram is this group? I'd definitely like to see some other offers they have in the future.

I got an email and went straight there and everything was already gone. How much was the R30 poster?

Please share where that tip came from.

Of course all this went up for sale on the day I end up working 7am until 9pm.

So I'm curious, if anyone can supply the info, what were the prices on the now sold out items?  I see HalfwayToGone posted the $400 and $100 prices on the posters, but anyone else know what any of the other prices were?

I commented on this yesterday, Backstage Club (On The Lighted Stage) Forum.

Pretty lame when a company sends out an email for new items on sale but in fact they are on auction.
Email about 10:00 am, sold outs on all but one item by late afternoon.

Somebody is making a tonne off of offers for fans, and it ain't going to the band.

Nice!

I've run across these once or twice.Seems like something that may have been part of a press kit at one time.

Curious about pricing too. Likely more than I'd be willing to pay, but you never know.

Yeah by the time I saw the email the autographed R30 that I would've wanted was gone. :(

Just noticed all the feedback/questions--to be clear:  I only noticed the Rush Backstage Club (their online store) posted about this sale ahead of time on instagram on their regular page--so there's no special club one needs to be in.  I just usually, like you all, find out after everything is sold out that I'd be interested in.  From the things I remember, the signed R30 poster that I got was $100, and the R40 duffel with the R30/feedback geddy's dryer tshirt I also got was $80.  The signed poster of Neil, I think for Anatomy Of A Drum Solo, was $400, the Rush ReDiscovered signed box set was either also $400 or more, and may have been only signed by Alex and Geddy, I'm not sure, and there was a big bundle of Show Of Hands releases in various formats, can't recall the price.  And whoever said it was an auction, no it wasn't, it was a very small number of things they found laying around and put on sale, that sold out rapidly, like usual.  Some of it of course ended up right on ebay for vastly inflated prices like over $1000 for the $100 poster.

I have never had luck with the backstage website I think I kind of gave up on it a few years ago. I had better luck on various auction sites. I did, however, think that robe was really cool.

In my limited experience with auction sites, they tend to be a lot more expensive than ordering direct..
