Hi John - I appreciated your help earlier. I was seeking to determine whether or not my program was band-issued, sold on their website to promote the '94 tour. I'd been told this but was never able to independently verify. Anyway, the last bid placed was in the $1950 range. But as you probably know, top bid price isn't really the issue. I'd set a reserve of $1800 net to me. I put the program on eBay and just sold it two days ago for a best offer price of $2000, which after fees is around $1740 to me. This is less than what I'd hoped. But it seemed fair. I have communicated with the buyer via email. He seems to be a great guy, so I'm glad it went to a good home.
