So do promo posters not gain value? They look like they could be somewhat rare in the future if there are only 300 of them.

This post nailed it..

They hang these all over the place including telephone poles, at the venue, give them out on the street, put them on ticket booths, etc. Anywhere they can get away with posting these they will. Official? Yes. Collectible? Not really. They usually just use a generic headshot of the band from their presskit along with the date/time/etc. If you like them, get them but I wouldn't expect anyone to trade you for them in the future.


Because promo posters are just a plain stock image, reproduced on plain paper, a dime a dozen, and posted wherever possible... I can practically guarantee that they won't gain value. Sorry to burst any bubble you had about them. Although if you like them, by all means buy them. However, you'd probably be better off finding posters that are on expressobeans if you are looking for posters that gain value, but even then... many posters that cost $200 a couple years ago, can now be found for $100 less. So there is little guarantee that any poster will gain in value.

Thanks. This clears it up. I'm going to get them because these will look nice framed up and I can afford them. The official posters sold at concerts I can't afford unless I was there with the exception of some of the ones on TMR.com

Just wondering if anyone had bought wood frames form michaels. All I ever see are those crappy plastic poster frames that warp on your wall.

Do you guys frame all of your posters or just frame some and store the others in cardboard tubes?

Frame what you can afford and have room for, keep the others stored flat if possible, in tubes if flat isn't an option.
