I scanned that bar code with my phone and got a price of 54.95 plus 21.58 shipping from Ebay. Brich costs more to prep for shipping.

Brich ply is the best. Says so right there. Sounds even better when paired with MasterCaps neeps.

I could see that sticker making them collectable.

Forget mapel. I'm changing my vote to Norwegian Wood.

Brich huh? VPX? Don't think Pearl ever made VPX. They made VBX, V meaning Vision and B meaning birch, or brich in this case. Too many inconsistenies make me think this is a fake.

Edit: Nevermind, found it. It's a "special" edition, hench the brich. :)

This is hysterical.

So what would be the real story? Actual typos from Pearl, or counterfeit stuff?

If it is real it isn't a bad deal. I found 3 others, all over $100. Possibly a seller's mistake, anyone can print a bar code. I'm still skeptical though.

We live in a cofvefe culture.
I found an old newspaper from 1856. It was made by typographers who transposed the stories upside down and backwards with metal block letters, with no typos.
