VIP extras for sale.... anybody want to buy the goodies?

Recommended Posts

I bought a number of VIP Nation ticket packages but don't need all of the extras that come with the concert tickets. I used on ticket and sold the others (for face value of the ticket) and am left with all of the special extras that only VIP Nation ticket buyers received. The VIP Nation ticket package cost $300. I'd like to get $150 for the package of extras without the concert ticket but am open to reasonable offers. I am NOT interested in selling individual items at this time. PM if you're interested in buying the entire gift goodies package... I have T-shirts in size L or XL.

 

The list of goodies, as described by VIP Nation:

  • New and Exclusive Rush 2013 Tour t-shirt
  • Collectible Rush poster (limited, numbered)
  • Exclusive surprise Rush gift (CA coin)
  • Official tour program
  • Commemorative concert ticket
  • Commemorative tour laminate

Photos and specs:

 

T-shirt in size L or XL:

Poster is 18-1/2" x 12"

Exclusive surprise gift... the coin.... is 2" in diameter and 1/8" thick:

Tour program is about the size of a vinyl album cover:

Ticket is 5-3/8" x 2-1/2", one side has a hologram image with changing colors and Rush / CA logos:

Nice swag, but $150? You must be out yo mind. If (and I say if) you could buy them separately, they would cost less than $150 in total.

 

So, I won't expect you to make an offer then? "IF" is the key word. This stuff isn't available elsewhere....not that I'm trying to capitalize on the unique nature of the stuff, just trying to break even on the VIP purchases I made since I sold concert ticks for $150 each. I don't think individual items would sell for much less than $150 anyway.... IF you could get them. I am open to reasonable offers.... don't be shy. Have your people call my people....

 

"Buy the VIP schwag from Huge! It's awesome sauce....."

$35 for the shirt, $20 for for the program, $20 for the poster. At most you have $90 worth of stuff.

I thought $100. And that's my rushbackstage.com estimate pricing. Maybe OP shouldn't ask more than Rush would for this merch, but obviously he's trying to recoup all his expenses.

$35 for a shirt? I'm not sure why you'd sell the tix for $150 when they are worth much more than that.

 

"Damn skippy, tickets are worth more that $150, even in US Dollars, eh! But Huge was just doing a Rush "miracle" for a couple of true fans by selling them for a fair price... Buy his VIP schwag already, will ya?!"

I would at a fair price. But by selling the tix for far under their fair value, it seems he's trying to make up for it by selling the swag for much more than their fair value. Listen, if people are willing to pay it, that's great. That's the market. But when I got these extras on previous tours I would see them as an extra, not something that constituted half the price of the ticket. Rush's normal ticket prices would seem to back up that opinion.

 

I'll go on record offering $40 plus shipping.

$150 is too much. That said, there's a sucker born every minute.

Thanks for offering up the VIP extras. I think you have a fair price for some unobtanium Rush swag. Ignore the usual whiners that aren't going to buy them anyway. The T-shirt is easily worth 60 bucks. I'm still hoping for a Rush miracle VIP ticket with swag for the KC show. If anybody has an extra VIP, please PM me ASAP!!! :rush:

I gave away all of my VIP stuff for free (except shipping costs and the shirt which I kept) to various members of the forum.

Me too, I love Rush but for whatever reason I just dont collect stuff...so except for keeping one tour book I've given away all our VIP swag from each leg of the tour to forum members. At the Hamilton show as we were leaving saw one really young kid just beaming having experienced Rush (probably for the first time)...so I gave my VIP laminates to his dad for his son. Kid was so happy it just made an awesome show even better for us. Just mailed off my last coin & CA guitar picks today...paying it forward. Cheers!

Good luck with that at that price.

 

Nice pics though.

Fwiw, I've seen the same stuff go on eBay for under $100, and one package with all the schwag from both legs together went for about $123. Then there's the one maniac who paid $150 for just the coin, but the vast majority of the entire sets of 2nd leg schwag are going for just over a hundy. Edited by HalfwayToGone

I sold my VIP swag on ebay as a charity auction for a flooded Kindergarten. :sundog:

You are good and caring human beings and I am a greedy pig. The world is a better place because of people like you and worse for the likes of my ilk. You probably sleep better at night than I do because you are so virtuous...

No need to appear dickish. Neither of those fine two members was trying to besmirch you, IMO.
