Very Nice! Thank you for sharing! I like the Herb Ritts photos. (b&w pics from hits 1&2) They look as if they could be printed on metal or something...What are they exactly?

They are promotional flats from the release of The Hits/The B-Sides. Im not sure if The B-Sides was released on vinyl, if so its another I need to add!

The Hits 1 and 2 are on vinyl. (The B sides where not released on vinyl though. Other than their original bside vinyl versions.). I bought mine on EBAy about 5 years ago. Germany printed the vinyl ones.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

are any of these 4 sale??

As much as I need the mone...the years spent aquiring everything...the one of a kind nature of some of it, I don't think I could ever sell. [Edited 6/15/16 10:26am]

I'm glad to hear your answer. I was scrolling through ebay a few weeks back now and someone posted their collection - a fraction of this marvelling beauty - the whole thing. And it made me realllllyyy sad, the energy and love collecting as a devoted, loyal fan while he was with us and to just turn around and post it felt like, 'well, that's over with' - now before anyone flogs me, my objective friend did emind me that we can't really know the motivation behind their decision, and she's right, but it still stung just the same.

Is it a Prince Room????????? I think I may be re-doing the walls in my second bedroom, since I just purchased 4 vintage 80s/90s posters and some other items. Though, i will never have something as impessive as your remarkable collection.

This is an ongoing 20+ year collection; I have some rare items and thought it would be awesome to see what you all have that is even more dear.

Napkin From Prince & Mayte's Wedding

Pillow from Prince's former playroom at Paisley Park

Hardcovers, Photo journals, Tourbooks, Calanders, and misc trinkes

The magazine collection. I only pictured paperbacks with Prince on the cover.

Shirt collection

Finally, the vinyl...about 80% of it. I still have all my CDs, 45s, and a ton of posters to post; Ill get to it if you'd like to see more, its just exhausting trying to get so much in a single shot!!!

Lets see yours! Im dying to see more collections!

Do/did you live near Minneapolis? How did you obtain some of those Prince treasures (like wedding napkin, pillow, bat symbol etc)? So jealous! Especially of your 1999 poster, nice addition!

I plan on showing this pics to my hubby whenever he says something about my massive collection. Wonderful collection, by the way.

I think you need to show yours so we can compare cool

anyone know if theres a place that sells tribute t-shirts???

ETSY!!! You can find so many great ones and some have them at very affordable prices which to me I appreciate because it feels less like they are doing a money grab (some for $8-12 and of course up to $20-30). I bought the 'This Dove Is Crying - 1958-2016 one and two others are in my to be purchased list. Have to space out the spending as I have purchased 5 vintage posters, a concert program, some other things in the past few weeks. Making up for the extremely underpriveledgd childhood that didn't have the funds for any tokens growing up. And DEFINITELY not for the concerts sad Though I am glad I saved up for the Musicology tour and to have snag momentos from there. Small pittance in comparison razz But if you find any great shirts in Etsy let me know which ones you chose smile

Love your collection. I would have to put the records in order though! lol (at me)!!

I wanted to but I was already several hours into unpacking, setting up, taking down, and repacking!

Plus my set up wasnt very forgiving, nothing wanted to stay in place. I did this on a whim. Ill pull EVERYTHING out sometime and do it right.

Should display them proudly, I know I would! lol

I literally just received the set of those promotional flats for The Hits/The B-Sides I recently purchased! Can't wait to frame them! biggrin They are still on ebay, a seller is selling them as sets.
