What in your opinion is the Holy Grail of White Stripes collectibles?

There's so many possibilities here...I'm trying to imagine something another collector has that I desire and nothings seems to fall in that category. There's some other curios I can think of, but am hesitant to mention here as I don't want others beating me to it.

I definitely think actual stage-used musical equipment would be boss. We saw what the "Hardest Button" drumset got up to on eBay and there's certainly a dearth of stuff of such a caliber hitting the actual collector marketplace.

As for an actual record...the hand-painted "Lafayette Blues" singles are pretty godhead.

The very first WS item I wanted was one of those "Hardest Button" drum sets - does anyone know how they went on ebay or where they are now?

One was put on eBay. It was put up by charity. But at 10k (?) it still hadn't met the reserve price. I think someone had asked to buy it and the reserve price was at that limit.

This pisses me off. Why couldn't the person just bid on it like everyone else?

Also due to some reason they couldn't sell the drum kits so they gave them away to schools.

So surely some crazy fan has gone around to schools trying to get their hands on them? There were enough in the video to be able to find some - you'd surely start where it was filmed....
