11 October 2011: A Japanese pressing of Brand New Age, autographed by the then line-up sold on e-Bay for £66.00plus postage. This is roughly in-line with prices for good quality copies of this unusual release with the Promo copies fetching slightly more.
21 June 2011: A red vinyl copy of Work in Progress with plectrum and promo cd have sold on the US e-Bay site for $133.00 plus postage. Clearly a future collectable, limited to 120 copies that sold out in days, Subs fans on the other side of the pond clearly missed out first time.

11 April 2011: A test pressing of This Gun Says has sold on e-Bay for $58.00 plus postage. Only listed on the US version of the auction site, this would have gone higher if listed internationaly and as test pressings go, this was a bit of a bargain.

6 April 2011: A misspressed label 'Teenage' 7" single has sold on e-Bay for £26-00. Click on the below screen print for more details.
5 April 2011: A copy of the Fan Club 'Party In Paris' one sided single (sung in French by Charlie) has sold on e-Bay for £156.00 plus postage. Quite staggering that a release that usually sells for around £40 should go so high and that there should be such a lot of bidders (13 bids in the end). Maybe something to do with the current high level of interest in the band. Click on the screenprint below to enlarge.

As far as the web admins know, this poster wasn't given away with the LP, but it looks like either an old Fan Club merchandise poster or an old Record Shop poster?
