Memorabilia is the Ultimate Gift
People are always looking for the Ultimate Gift for a friend or family member. What else would make a better gift than something signed by a Sport or Movie star or their favourite Musician or Band. Imagine seeing the look on their face when they unwrap their gift and are blown away by what they now have just received.
Signed Memorabilia is the ultimate gift. It means something, it’s special, it comes with a certificate of authenticity and most importantly it will increase in value. Most gifts whether for Birthday, Christmas or just because you love and respect the person don’t increase in value as time goes on but Signed Memorabilia does. Take for instance the sad and untimely death of basketballer Kobe Bryant the demand for his memorabilia skyrocketed as well as the prices the day after his death.
Same as when Michael Jackson Passed away his signed memorabilia increased by thirty percent minutes after details of his death were announced. Imagine what will happen to Signed Memorabilia by the members of Pearl Jam when their time comes (best to get in early while prices are low). Pearl Jam signed memorabilia is the ultimate gift that will increase in value.
My Father is a huge Beach Boys fan and I recently bought him a framed picture signed by Mike Love and Brian Wilson, he was so happy when he opened it he immediately put it up on his wall in the living room and I get to see it every time I visit and remember the joy it gave him. I also know the remaining members of The Beach Boys days are sadly numbered and I will definitely telling my father to get the items valued. Your Love One or friend will be so surprised and happy with this amazing gift and will show it off in their home for many years to come.
Alternatively there is also some cheaper and more affordable Memorabilia that can be found on eBay and Amazon. Although most of this type of Memorabilia is more novelty type items that won’t increase in value they still look good and make the perfect gift for any occasion. Things ranging from rare photos, books and even glassware. My favourite though is the picture frame that comes with photos and a plaque containing the history of your favourite band, actor or sport star.
Who Is Pearl Jam
Pearl Jam is an American rock band that formed in 1990 in the city of Seattle, Washington. The band’s current lineup consists of founding members Eddie Vedder who is the bands lead singer and guitarist), Mike McCready on lead guitar, Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar and Jeff Ament on bass as well as the band’s drummer Matt Cameron who is the ex drummer to Soundgarden and who joined in Pearl Jam in 1998 after taking the drumming responsibilities from Jack Irons who had health issues. Keyboardist Boom Gaspar has also been a session and touring member with the band since 2002.
Gossard and Ament’s previous Grunge band, Mother Love Bone, was one of Seattle’s more promising bands and by 1989 had released their first EP called Shine. Unfortunately by 1990 Mother Love Bone had lost their lead singer Andrew Wood to an overdose on Heroin, this unforeseen event happened only days before Mother Love Bone’s first album ‘Apple’ was due to be released. With the death of Wood the band quickly disbanded and Gossard and Ament got together with Mike McCready and Eddie Vedder to form Pearl Jam.
Pearl Jam then broke into the mainstream with its debut album, Ten which was released in 1991 and went on to be Pearl Jam’s most commercially successful album. One of the main Seattle grunge bands in the the early 1990s, the members of Pearl Jam often rebelled against the popular music industry practices by refusing to give interviews and release music videos to promote their albums. They also sued Ticketmaster, claiming it had monopolized the concert-ticket market and the band would not play any concerts at any Ticketmaster venues.
Pearl Jam are known for their live performances and continue to sell out stadiums all around the world. One notable concert was during Pearl Jam’s concert at the Orange Stage in Denmark on the 30th of June 2000. Nine fans were crushed and died, and twenty-six people were injured, three of them seriously. The dead included a 26-year-old cadet police officer from Hamburg, a 23-year-old Dutchman and three Swedes, two aged 22 and one 20. Throughout Pearl jam’s career, the members have promoted wider social and political issues, from pro-choice sentiments to opposing with George W. Bush’s presidency. Vedder acts as the band’s spokesman on these issues.
The band has promoted an array of causes, including awareness of Crohn’s disease, which Mike McCready suffers from and the protection of the environment and wildlife. The band has sold more than 32 million albums in the United States by and has sold more than 85 million albums worldwide since their debut. Pearl Jam has outsold many of its contemporary alternative rock bands from the early 1990s, and is considered as one of the most influential bands of the decade. Pearl Jam was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 7, 2017.
I believe with Pearl Jam’s popularity still growing and the band being one of the biggest bands in the world, anything signed by the members of Pearl Jam will be in high demand will make a smart investment. Eddie Vedder is one of the most famous performers in the world and his autograph will only increase in value as time goes on it would also make the perfect gift for any Pearl Jam fan to receive.
