I stopped counting after a while but I'm guessing it was definitely less than 50. Not living in the US really took my legs out from under me. I know a few people who ONLY went to US shows and went to 50+ shows, whereas I focused on hitting foreign countries and using it as a reason to travel again. I saw them on five different continents (regret not seeing them in South America) so I think I did pretty well, all things considered.

Unless your brother was buying 50+ lithos, I wouldn't have minded. Me and my friends do the exact same thing. My friends have their job (make sure to keep my place in line or keep a spot for me at the rail) and  I have my job (get everybody merch). Whoever has the job of getting merch might get weird looks when they're walking away with 15 shirts and 10 lithos but I honestly have no problem when they already have names on them. When people buy 50 lithos or 100 shirts to flip on Ebay, that's when they can go get fucked. You guys know who you are.

Podcast is here:

Thats probably the smart play, as you mentioned some of the non-US lithos have never been seen for sale. The US has plenty of collectors, traders, and even scalpers to feed the beast.

I was just teasing. Someone made a quip about him buying so much. We were supposed to be a group of 10, but a couple dudes bought show tix and never got flights. With the on and off rain, he burned their VIP tickets getting in to get merch to bring back to our hotel. So he was buying for everyone and a spare for a board member here. Once we all got to the venue, I was glad he did as those lines were insane. It did appear that lots of shirts sold out, it seemed like they still had lithos hanging in the booths. Plenty seem to have made their way to ebay though.

Cant wait to listen! Im sure you have amazing stories. What an adventure you have had.

Well I didn't choose the destinations because of the lithos :lol:

And honestly, I don't mind people who flip stuff for a profit. Let's face it, if it wasn't for Ebay and people like that, we would ALL have problems getting most lithos. We can't go to all the shows and we can't always have a friend going to a show who can pick up a litho. We as merchandise collectors need people who get multiple lithos for the specific purpose of making it available for purchase to people who didn't go to the show/couldn't get one at the show. But when these people grab twenty or thirty lithos instead of like five - that's where I think I draw the line.

I'm a little late chiming in here, but just wanted to give a huge public congrats to my bro A Man in Japan.  I had a front row seat to this journey (had a GREAT time being there btw) and I can assure everyone here, however much work and time you think this took, you need to 10x that number, and I am not exaggerating.   This is a really incredible achievement that took an insane amount of dedication and focus to pull off.  There are many lithos in that shot that only a few dozen people on the planet will ever see again.

If anyone has a Chicago Night 1 and Cincinnati for sale, send them my way. These are the last two lithos I need to complete my set for the shows I attended. I have 20+ so would love to finish the collection. I would even settle for WarPig quality reprints if they exist...Thanks!!!

Along that note, still looking for the Paris buhler if anyone has one for sale or trade on here?  This is the final one to complete the collection of the ones I want for my home office.

Thats an epic tale. I love details as you "visited" each city piece by piece. Great read. Thank you for sharing. Sounds like you guys had a blast.

I was hoping to catch a beer with him in Hawaii and pick his brain for a road story or two. Share that in venue memory, as he gave me one of the warmest welcomes to this forum. 

Sorry about the cleveland litho, though if any city was going to disappoint.....it had to be cleveland! Haha

Thanks for all the kind words, @estrangedtwat - Most importantly, I'm glad you enjoyed yourself! My section of Japan has much more to offer so please feel free to come by again.

Hope you enjoy the shirts - I'm not into the shirts anywhere nearly as much as the lithographs because I consider shirts a 'consumable' and always find it bittersweet that they essentially have a finite lifespan if you 'consume' them the way they are designed (to be worn). I've loved wearing many 'favorite' shirts over the years and always end up sad when they eventually deteriorate into glorified rags. But at the same time, they're designed to be worn - so it's just as sad to have shirts just tucked away in a closet, never to be worn. So wear them with pride and rock out with them while you can!

And enjoy the Kobe - you've literally been on this journey with me since day one, were the first person I traded/bought lithos with and been a great friend every step of the way. Can't think of anybody who deserves it more! Just sorry that it ended up being a late Christmas present :lol:

I know his collection is amazing but I also wanted to say that @amaninjapan is one coolest and nicest GNR fans I ever met. I've been to several shows and have usually seen the same people but they usually keep to themselves and their own group but @amaninjapan is truly a nice ass friendly dude and makes time fly while you're waiting for pit or Lithios. Rock Man and fuck those LA Manson jabrons!

Holy shit dude. Congrats.

Amaninjapan really is a great dude. Had the pleasure of sharing the litho journey with him the last two years. Hope we meet again.

Man I really love the passion support and appreciation this group has towards the GNR litho scene and one another its fukin awesome. I myself have over 30 (which is shit I know) and  I am quietly on the uphill trek of a full collection. The forum with all of it's great stories and knowledge has been an instrumental part of that journey for me. So I thank all of you from a silent friend who has been lurking in the shadows for a while.  I certainly hope as do most if not all of you the GNR train continues to roll.  GnfnR!!!   And oh yeah FUCK Warpig..
