> you should be able to buy as many as you want because they should never run out


that's not right - quality posters should be limited - if you want something that never runs out, you'd have to sell only computer printouts - and those arent quality

As many of you have seen, many of the Furthur Posters are ending up on e bay. On 12/30 I saw people buying way more than one or two posters at a time. My girlfriend saw the same thing on 12/31 & I myself witnessed a lady buying 25 posters! That was obviously not for personal use. Should there not be a limit of one or two per patron? The same thing happened in Colorado in February, and my girlfriend was lucky to get one, being in line within moments after the doors opened. Anyone else think letting people buy tons of posters is fair?


bullshit guess the merch guys look at it as sales and less to carry to next show. also this way they don't get stuck with show specific posters.

but a lot like e don't buy at shows. we would rather get online which is what i do each time i get posters. if not from band from artist but never ever ebay

Agree completely. Saw the same thing. NYE poster for $115 on Ebay?!! Yes, I missed buying that night, but my only option shouldn't have to be buying it on Ebay for 3 to 4 times the face. I wish Furthur would post merchandise from tours on this site and sell at show prices. Saw the same in Boston too. One man bought 15 posters. $30 a piece, now $90 starting price on Ebay. Bad karma and bad way to rip off kind folk like us.

Desperate times calls for desperate measures, too bad, people have to stop buying them then the demand will go away...

They do...Not all but some. The price is the same I think... I am pretty sure the Red Rocks was 30 when I bought it.

saw a guy @ Phil's birthday rolling up 10-12 in a big tube. I bought one - $30. It's at my fav. frame shop now.

One is listed on ebay for $100, with only one mysterious bid.

Gr8fulauditors,

I met Mike DuBois @ Best Buy, I recently got his Furthur 2009 Poster #2 from this site (BTW rolled to tight). Nice guy.
