Cannot find it any where! Is it supposed to be on the book?

There's a gold sticker on the title page, the number is stamped on there with Ernst's signed initials. Some counterfeit versions of The Boy From Tupelo were printed in Cambodia, and didn't have the sticker or the four 10X8 photos and other 'artifacts'. A lot of them were sold in Europe.

What 10x8 photos are in the set?

I'll have to check my copy again which I bought from ShopElvis but I don't recall seeing this gold sticker.

I'm joking.

I don't think there were any numbered. It was never promised it was, as far as I remember.

So, they are not numbered! Just 3000 copies printed. That's it? Okay. Just what I wanted to know.
Thanks!! :smt001
Why would someone put 'limited edition numbered' when they are selling it on Ebay? It still doesn't show it.

Hi Sheila,

My friend Josh put his box set up on eBay and he cut and pasted some of the description from another persons ad. The other seller's ad had the misinformation about it being numbered. Josh didn't know that it wasn't because his set is still sealed. He just assumed that all the sets were numbered like The First Complete Masters Sets were.

Mike C brought it to my attention on the Trade and Sell Forum.

I told Josh about it and he made the correction on his eBay auction.

Why don't we just number our own sets.

I'll get things started.

Mine is number 1.

Too late!

I already numbered mine 1.

Yours can be number 2. :wink:

I couldn't afford the "A boy from Tupelo"-boxset when it came out but it looks like my income will increase in the not too distant future. Is there any chance that the boxset will be re-released? Or is there any place that still has some copies left?
