It's never a guarantee remember. Make sure you're ok if it never comes back.

Actually, I think they personalize it so you CAN'T really sell it on E-Bay!
I don't think they'll sign anything that isn't personalized!! So I would make sure that you let them know what name you want personalized! (if you, your name, if it's a present, the recipients name)
Nope, the ones I saw on e-Bay last tour were personalized and obviously just recently signed. Saw them sell for $150 to $400 or so. There are so many counterfeits or incomplete band-signed items (most missing Peart) that people seem willing to fork out the cash even if the item is personalized.
And who knows ... the guy buying on e-Bay might just happened to be named "Joe" or whatever. Anyway, just because it is personalized does not mean people are not trying to take unfair advantage of the band's generosity.
Please don't be "that guy".

The Retrospective III posters that they gave away/sold with the CD (I'm not really sure how I got this one) - a limited number were signed by all three members and not personalized. To my chagrin, this is still framed and wrapped in paper waiting for a wall to have a vacancy.

In any case, it's a shame that so many scalpers are out there trying to flip things on ebay or sell flat out forgeries. I'm sure it leaves a sour taste in their mouths, as does the occasional insider who sells meet and greets for over $2K a pop on the ticket seller sites.

I think I will chance sending my Caress of Steel LP to try this out. So would I send it to this address exactly or add a line that would say Attn: Liam Burt at the bottom of the above? I think I will try this, hopefully I will get it back even though I live nowhere near Pittsburgh, although in my defense they aren't coming within 500 miles of me on this tour.
Cant imagine shipping an LP out- too much sentimental value on items I have been hauling around for 25ish years to risk not getting them back.
I bought a print of one of Alex's paintings with a certified autograph, that was sold by the Canadian Kidney Foundation. Thought that was a good way to kill two birds with one stone- I knew the money was going to a good cause and I got a real Alex autograph.

|You should have gotten him to send along some of his famous soup too!|
That would have been nice, but the envelope would have gotten soggy.

|How does one know it's an authentic signature?|
The item that I have signed from last time has signatures that are very close to "certified authentic" items that I have seen. Sending my photo to Consol today.
