lol got that long title out of the way.
I've been coming to this site for a little while now and originally scoffed at becoming a paid member when it was first introduced. Then I started coming to the site more and more and that attitude changed very quickly and I wanted to give them money, premium content or not. I had to wait until I had a birthday come up but it worked out perfectly because they were offering those badass Giant Bombcast posters. Not only that, they were going to sign it. I hopped on that right away and eventually the poster came.
I unwrapped it once to have a gander and was not disappointed. I wanted to keep it in the best condition possible so I put it back into its mailing tube for temporary storage. I knew that to give this the honor it deserves I should get a custom frame made for it and put it up on the wall. I realized that it would cost a pretty penny so i sadly had to put the idea on the backburner for the time being. Fast forward to now when I have tax return money coming in I was able to get the frame ordered.
18x35 7/8's black wooden grained rounded frame, glass is twice as thick as normal frame glass, and is going to be dry mounted on to the acid free board. In total $98 before tax. It could take up to 2 weeks for it to be done but it should be done in about 1 week. I'm very excited to see how it turns out and to post pictures.
The guy helping me with the frame was really nice and polite and he finally asks me the insurance question, "so lets say something happens to the store. It catches fire or falls down and your poster gets ruined; how much is it worth." I just start laughing and kind of shake my head, "To be completely honest its not worth anything. These guys aren't famous to the normal person." He kind of laughs and gives me an expectant look "ehhhh well, I guess if I had to put a number on it I would say about $300. I imagine it make take that much just to get the guys to give up some of their time to all sign the same poster again." I then tell him its probably pretty awkward to ask people to put a number on these type of possessions. He said that most people try and say "priceless."
Only thing missing from all of this would have been dave and drews scrawls on the poster. I know they aren't Bombcast crew but they have an equal place in my heart. lol maybe one day I can have a post-it note with their sigs added into the frame. I've rambled on enough, I'll update this with pics once I'm able to go and pick it up.
