Now, if you’re like me, you’re thinking well this must be for the Vinnie Vincent superfan, surely he has some items for sale that I can afford.
Well, the absolute cheapest items that I currently see on his online shop are $100 for either the Vinnie Vincent Guitar Pick Collectors Sets or the Vinnie Vincent T-Shirt 2 Pack. He also has autographed CD’s available for $150 each.
Now, admittedly, Vinnie is probably taking a cue from former bandmate Gene Simmons who offers “The Gene Simmons Vault”. But let’s compare what you get in Gene’s Vault…The self-proclaimed King of Making Cash.
Gene Simmons Vault:
Gene’s description of the vault contents:
The Vault includes 166 recordings featuring notable rock and roll artists and of course, my bandmates from KISS.
As an obsessive music fan and collector myself, I’ve packed The Vault with exclusive mementos created just for The Vault – a new Gene action figure, an “In Gene We Trust” oversized commemorative coin, a deluxe book containing over 50,000 words and 160-pages of unseen photos from my personal collection. As well as a track-by-track commentary on every song.” – Gene Simmons
This can all be yours for only $1,500.
To be honest, I wouldn’t spend my hard-earned cash on either one of these. Both of these guys seem to be charging a premium to their fans. Now, after all of this is stated, it’s important to remember that we live in a capitalist society in the United States and you can sell anything for any price. The market will bear whatever the price is by the buyers determining the actual value. With that being said, how many people fall into the category of (A) being a hardcore fan of Vinnie Vincent and (B) having almost $10, 000 to spend on that admiration.
In the interest of fairness, I am posting the link to Vinnie Vincent’s online merchandise shop for anyone who wants to buy any or look at the items that he has available:
