Close to the bottom:
Those records me and Dave Buick did when we hand-painted them [first two White Stripes singles]. Dave said one of them went for 2700 dollars. And somebody tried to fake one and got caught and he's not allowed to sell on there anymore. Those are some good ones. You remember that show when we painted those singles for Lafayette Blues? We pitched up six dollars for them. I remember me and Ben were talking, Aw that's too much! No-one's gonna buy it at the Gold Dollar for six dollars. Hahaha! Then we went in to sell them and you can't pick! You had to buy the first one, and there was a ton of people standing around waiting for someone to buy the first one, because they didn't want the first one. They wanted the tenth one. There was one with a giant picture of Meg sticking her tongue out on one of them, which Dave made. It's funny stuff - thinking no-one's gonna buy them for 6 dollars, now they're going for 2700!
