Metallica are still arguably one of the most iconic Metal bands of the last 30 years. A consitent output of Heavy Metal albums, and still a storming live act. As the band gear up for this Summer's 'Metallica: By Request' Tour, we have aquired some of the most interesting, and sought after Metallica collectibles around. This has come from the collection of Sem Hadland, author of the book "Metallica Fuel & Fire, the illustrated collectors guide to Metallica" and previous owner/webmaster of Encyclopedia Metallica.
Below are just some of the highlights in our catalogue:
METALLICA Metalli-Can – Rare FULLY AUTOGRAPHED 1988 Japanese only 6½" tall paint tin with a logo embossed lid, includes the …And Justice For All CD album & exclusive T-shirt. The sticker on the tin has some wear and the tin has a few small indentations, but all contents are superb with the t-shirt in an unworn condition. What makes this copy even more special is the fact that the CD sleeve has been signed by James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo in a black felt pen, but has also been signed by Jason Newsted in blue.
METALLICA One – Super rare FULLY AUTOGRAPHED1989 Japanese CBS Sony orange label promotional- only large centred 7" featuring the Short Version, also including Breadfan, complete with the unique custom insert printed with tour dates on thefront and lyrics on the reverse. The insert and sleeve are both in excellent condition, but what makes this copy even more collectable is the fact it has been signed by James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett & Jason Newsted across the front in a silver or black pen, these were obtained circa 1999 as Lars has also added the year to his signature and Jason left the band in 2001.
METALLICA Mandatory Metallica – Mega Rare 1988 US original 7-track promo-only compilation CD, this issue is without the track 'One' which was added to the later 8-track issue, with custom picture sleeve. Does exactly what it says on the case, and includes the most Mandatory Metallica tracks, such as Master Of Puppets, For Whom The Bell Tolls, and Creeping Death. A very rare Metallica collectable that deserves a place in any serious Metallica collection!
