Vintage JB Posters and Shirts on Ebay?

Post by FinsUp6835 »

So this seller keeps posting really "rare" posters and t shirts on Ebay. I always keep an eye on posters and such for my Mville garage.

However, these posters just don't seem legit to me. Is there anyway to verify them? It seems like the tours don't match up based on the database. Here are the links below. To me, they kind of look like he took old photos and screen printed them on? (I would never spend this much money anyway but just curious if these are legit) Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated. FINS UP PHRIENDS!

I have been seeing these too. I’m thinking some former concert promoter is trying to unload a lot of old memorabilia at a high price to see what they can make off of it. Some of it does look fake while some items do look “the age”.

I did see an Anguilla shirt for sale that looked dubious, at best. (Pictures did not match what was being sold).

Moral of the story - I’m not taking the bait on any of it.

I do believe the seller is legitimate. Many of the items have been posted in the BuffettNews Facebook group. He is a memorabilia collector/vendor and I believe much of his Buffett collection was obtained from former original Reefer guitarist Roger Bartlett who he is friends with. He has some really awesome stuff but he definitely goes for top dollar on every bit of it. There are many reasons why I don't care for these listings, but I don't personally doubt their authenticity.

Interesting. Thank you.

I like the one Son of a Son poster but it is WAY too expensive.

Thanks for this - makes sense. I’m wondering if he broke some of the bundled items into separate items he could have some success.
