I've still never seen this poster set in person. To be fair, Rob had already collected a fair amount of Detroit post cards before consulting me. I lucked out a couple of years ago on eBay and bought a massive lot of Detroit post cards for the mere thought that I would never find so many in the same place again. I think it totaled in upwards of 1200 pieces. Granted there were lots of duplicates, but it was still a pretty sweet haul that left a huge smile on my face. When Rob called he had a few specific buildings he was looking for images of...ones that had eluded him online or wherever. I pulled them out of my collection with ease. He was also pretty jazzed on my Hotel Yorba post card so much so that he used it for a pretty straight repro on the Chicago poster for that tour. Coupling four of my favorite things - the White Stripes, post cards, Detroit and silk-screened concert posters - is a pretty impressive coup if you ask me.

The Yorba poster is really really nice in person. The paper is some kind of linen type which makes it feel and look a bit like a huge postcard. Ben, you need to see the Detroit spotlight in person, it's a fucking masterpiece.
