Update: Cure posters at Christie's auction

Christie's has some Cure posters up for auction.
(Thanks Scott/Monkeybutt)

Update: The posters went for $875. (Thanks Van)


  1. i've got over 45 posters. i wonder if any of them are worth anything!

  2. hey everyone. this yearbook yourself thing is pretty funny is you put a picture of robert smith into it!

    Yearbook Robert

  3. I think I will have to pass on the auction :(

    *puts money towards the Wishful Thinking/Dark Dreams tour in 2009)*

  4. sheesh! That's pricey!
    I had the huge subway posters of Boys Don't Cry and The Robert Gun FInger pic..
    Wish I still had em!!

  5. that single pic of Robert with the painted face is the same as the one in Maui's Hard Rock Cafe...
    anybody seen it? Is it still there in Maui??

  6. It used to be in my bedroom when I was a teenager in the 80s. It had frightened quite a few of my younger nephews and nieces at the time, or so I've been told lately! :-) Must be somewhere in a box, now (the poster, I mean).

  7. I wished I had the posters I had back in the 80's but they got all torn & tattered! Why did I throw them away? If I still had them, I wouldn't sell them, I would actually frame them and put them up in my computer room! Oh well I've got a few new ones to take their place!

  8. i had never noticed the little 'Band aid' logo before...

    @ Sofia, do you sell any?

  9. fabien,

    no i've never entertained the idea. at least not yet. if the economy stays this bad i may have to in the future. :c

  10. It's official.

    TMU won that auction and plans to put the posters up to finally support the new album: one in NYC, one in Los Angeles and one in London, UK!

    Wow! At long last! They're doing something! The band should definitely stay the course and sign with them for a couple more albums.

  11. Now that is funny...

    I have an account at work on Google to make reservations for school stuff and when I forget to log off, it makes me sign comments as "Canon" lmao

    Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted anything on here! I hope everyone's doing great! Happy Thanksgiving to any and all for whom it means something :o)

  16. Ralph came home severely drunk one night, somehow managed to slip into bed beside his sleeping wife, and fell into a deep slumber. He awoke before the Pearly Gates, where St Peter said to him, "You died in your sleep Ralph.." Ralph was stunned. "I'm dead? No, I can't be! I've got too much to live for. Send me back!" St Peter said, "Sorry, but there's only one way you can go back, and that's as a chicken"
    Ralph was devastated but begged St Peter to send him to a farm near his home... The next thing he knew, he was covered with feathers, clucking, and pecking the ground. A rooster strolled past. "So, you're the new hen, huh? How's your first day here?" "Not bad", replied Ralph the hen, "but I have this strange feeling I'm gonna explode!"
    "You're ovulating", explained the rooster. "Don't tell me you've never laid an egg before?" "Never", said Ralph. "Well just relax and let it happen. It's no big deal", said the rooster.
    Ralph did and a few uncomfortable seconds later, out popped an egg! Ralph was overcome with emotion as he experienced motherhood. He soon laid another egg - His joy was overwhelming....As he was about to lay his third egg, he felt a smack on the back of his head, and heard his wife scream....Ralph!!Wake Up. You fuckin shit the bed!!

  17. I have a HUGE poster collection along with old t-shirts dating to the Kiss me tour..... but I want them all to myself
