Other than rare music.
* Cheap Trick satin jacket which was bought in approx 1980 and has since been autographed by the band. I used to wear it to the concerts but it is now retired and hanging up.
* One on One picture disc
* First 5 albums on 8-track
* Dream Police cardboard/standup cutouts of each band member
* Cardboard promo for At Budokan
* Promo posters and album flats from Standing on the Edge, The Doctor, and Lap of Luxury
I don’t know what my rarest thing is but most expensive thing I forked out for before it ended up on the box set was A 3inch CD Japanese single Stop That Thief, paid twice the price of what I got the farkin box set forAngry
Collected so many items over the years. Some are mentioned above already.

Most rare is when I received a postcard from Tom when they were in Japan a few years back.

Also I received a signed get well card from the entire band & crew when I was sick.

Towel Rick insisted I have. I actually didn't want the sweaty thing at the time. LOL

But most importantly, all the very cool time & support the band & crew has given me over the years & of course the memories & friendships that transpired because of them.

Hmmm, let's see. I've gathered a lot of CT items over the years. Most of them are put away right now because I've recently moved. Off the top of my head some of the more notable stuff...
Bun E. Signature snare
Tom Waterstone 12 string bass
Bun signed gloves and sticks.
CT viewmaster reels
Tom Petersson devotional candle
Autographed DP standees
RIAFT book autographed by Mike Hayes
"Anytime" watch
LOTS more stuff that I should probably start getting rid of, and give someone else the chance to enjoy it.

These are really things? That's awesome.

OK, my favorite mementos of the moment – not including picks and photos - are from two of the BEST Cheap Trick shows I have ever seen.

* Two rumpled one-dollar bills that spent some time in Robin’s pocket in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on 6/24/12.
* A Zephyrhills water bottle Rick tossed me in Jacksonville, Fla., on 12/6/2013 at the end of an astounding two-hour show.

Top shelf! ☺
It's like Cheap Trick songs. I simply can't pick just one favorite:

The Budokan ad WITH the tea bag (as featured in the booklet that came with the Cheap Trick At Budokan: The Complete Concert 2 CD set)

A complete and just the tiniest bit bent around the corners set of Dream Police Stand-ups (like these)

An "All Shook Up" nightlight

The Ertl Cheap Trick semi-truck (being sold right now in Canada?)

The Cheap Trick ViewMaster set (sisters can be the best, especially when they like to go to thrift shops and know what you're on the hunt for Big Grin)

I'm still waiting to find an original Dream Police badge...
Other than unreleased audio/video, the only thing I collect are 7" singles.

Here are a few of the most rare that I own:

Writing On The Wall b/w I Know What I Want 1979 Holland
This is the most rare CT 7" that I am aware of. I don't even know anyone else who owns a copy.
I have a theory behind the release of this 7" and why it might be so rare...to me, this seems like an odd song from Dream Police to release as a single. However, shortly before Dream Police was released, CT did a small tour of Europe in which a couple of songs from the upcoming album were previewed. "Writing On The Wall" and "I Know What I Want" (and "Need Your Love") were the songs. In fact, other than a few rare instances here and there, this short tour of Europe was the only time that "Writing..." was performed live. I would bet that a limited run of this 7" was released in conjunction with that tour and as a taster for the DP album, but I would have one hell of a time proving it. It would make sense considering the somewhat odd choice of songs. Where is Bun E when we need him to answer such geeky archival questions?!?
Writing On The Wall 7"


Southern Girls b/w You're All Talk 1977 Germany
Awesome early 7" with rare pic sleeve.

That's not an original,the original had a pin on the back long before those clip thingys were invented.
