Yeah, I remember because a buddy of mine was neck and neck with the guy for a while and then the guy pretty much blew him away at the last second with a crazy bid. I want to say it went for well over $2000...I do have a copy of the receipt though. $25 for the real one, and now worth thousands, not a bad little return.

You have a copy of the receipt? Or a copy of the receipt? I saw the original, and my friend had it signed by B0lly and James in pencil. B0lly wrote something about mikePO being and ass on it. So there is more than one receipt? Interesting? I thought the price was somewhere around $3500++.

I always wondered what the value of that test pressing and receipt would go for today. Probably at lesat the same amount since it's one of the rarest and most desirable thing out there but the market is kind of low on SP stuff right now. But, this can only increase in value.

i fail to see how a test pressing of a 7" single could be worth $3500+

furthermore, how are a bunch of promo cassettes worth dick all?
they are mearly quaint collectables.

Oh no no...I only have a scanned copy of the receipt. I'm sorry I inferred that I had an actual copy. Nope, just the scan. I think that test pressing is the holy grail of collecting....well, that and "The Box." You can fight over the Tristessa Test Presses, the Today Promo, the I Am One Flexi, etc...but the I Am One is probably the grail of vinyl collecting.

-GK

dean moriaty
04-23-2003, 09:38 AM
i'd say you are right about it being the holy grail - along with the box (by the way does anybody know who owns any of the boxes or have any pics?) they are certainly the things i'd most like to get my hands on.....

i would also add the only known copy of the siamese dream multi coloured vinyl to that holy grail list though....

dean moriaty
04-23-2003, 10:33 AM
could you post a scan of that receipt or e.mail me it please.... very interesting!

Victor_Mancini
04-23-2003, 10:54 AM
I would agree with Holy grail statement. It's one of a kind collectable that was luckily made available to us mortals. I don't understand why Skibber Bee Bye's doesn't see the value of any of the promo items. It's in a way a demo tape is a lot rarer than all the stuff that sells for big $$$ on ebay. These are more limited and a lot rarer than even the most limited SP offical releases. The fact that something like the MCIS 3 vinyl goes sometimes over $100 with a pressing well over 25K shows that the market will support anything.

And I can't say if $3500 is worth it or not. I say yes and this is why. Again, it's the rarest of the rare. Tristessa test pressings go for about $1000 ++. Also, he has the actual original receipt! In SP and music history that's huge. If the boys were ever make it into the hall of fame that would definately be a piece worth showing.

Lastly, if I had the money I would pay that for it. Maybe even more.

dean moriaty
04-23-2003, 10:56 AM
i'd pay that money if i had it and it was for sale too....

Victor_Mancini
04-23-2003, 11:05 AM
Well, it's worth what someone will pay for it today.

Like Earaphoria promos use to be tons of $$$ but now they've dropped a lot.

I remember buying the Today 7" Phillipines(sp?) promo years ago for nothing and now it's supposely with tons, but I don't know exactly what the market is b/c I never see them for sale.

I think that the I am One Test pressing, at that price, can only be seen as an investment but I think one worth taking.

And I think in pounds that come out to about 2300=$3500 right?

"The Box" ???

dean moriaty
04-23-2003, 12:47 PM
the box!

This was a promo given out to record stores that participated in a display contest.

The complete set consisted of:
one Gish CD
one Lull CD EP
one "Siva" 12"
one "I Am One" promo flexi 7"
a t-shirt
an autographed 8"x10" promo photograph
The box itself measures 10" square (the "Siva" 12" does not fit inside) and was hand-decorated by the band with colored glues and magic markers. The box run was limited to only 10, all of which were individually numbered.

I remember talking to a guy here in the 'burbs of Chicago that's buddy used to be in the Blind Venetians (a local band that used to play with the Pumpkins) and was a DJ for the Avalon. This guy went along with his buddy to some outdoor festival where the Pumpkins were playing and the guy said that someone had a table with ALL of the boxes on them. He didn't think to even ask what they were, but he said that is for sure what they were. As for the I Am One receipt, just email me, and I will reply back with it.
