So here my story, so I started collecting in 2001, and I have spent thousands of dollars on collecting Mma memorabilia over the last 10 years. I just have to say thanks to all the other collectors for helping me acquire some pretty rare gems. Dawggy helped me build my dvd collection, and I have done business with almost all the big time collectors in getting my personal Mma memorabilia collection complete: Fightpimp, Tjsuckerpunch, Thehomeboy, Ricksongjj, and Yuma thanks again. Chipguy has given me great advice and always helps others out, so kudos to him. So now i am retiring from collecting and officially becoming a lurker. Enjoy my collection:

 Retiring?!? You don't quit MMA collecting; MMA collecting quits you. Nice stuff by the way.

Thanks Dawggy, those gloves are my favorite piece in my entire collection, followed by the Ufc 3 poster. Expensive as $hit for both items, but well worth it imo. The Ufc 3 came from Jeremy and the Premium gloves came from Ruben.

Very nice collection Sambo! Wow you've got some real gems there for sure.

Just a question for you - the Pride 32 (the version with Fedor & Coleman) - is that a full size poster? I have the mini and always thought that was such an amazing poster.

No its the weigh-in display that was posted around the Ceasars Palace during the weigh-in. I believe 5 or less exist. I dont know the exact measurements off the top of my head, but it is an official Dream Stage Entertainment piece. I took a picture next to the mini flyer as you can see the wording is slightly shifted and Coleman's elbow's are visible on the big version. I remember inside the casino, they had one poster like this inside a light box. But this is the weigh-in display that is double sided with same image on both sides.

Man that's a really nice piece then. Even though I only have the mini, I have it framed anyway because I like it that much. I have to admit I'm a little jealous! lol

SamboReigns - So now i am retiring from collecting and officially becoming a lurker. Enjoy my collection:
Don't be to much of a stranger now, just because your not buying or trading doesn't mean you have nothing to offer here... Good advice and knowledgeable collectors are few and far between and it sucks every time we lose one!!

The double sided 32 is sweet! I don't know if most people here know it or not, but all double sided poster are made to be displayed in light boxes. If your has two side it would light up nice and bright if you where to put it in one.

A friend from a movie poster forum put a walk though (with plenty of pic's) on how to build a light box. If you want I can try to find a link to it for you? Anyway thanks for sharing you defiantly have a kickass collection!!!

There were 30 made for the event, only a handful walked out of Ceasars with Yuma and Homeboy, wasnt meant to be in a light box, it was meant to be in the gold stands all over Ceasars Casino & Ceasars Forum shops. There were posters for the back of the cabs for the same event. Other then the one I fucked up trying to rip off the cab back then, i havnt seen one hit the public market.

Ask Yuma, he had a hookup with the people that were making them until the UFC pulled the plug on them for putting all the shit on ebay

Tj are you refering to pride 32 or pride 33? I know that about 4 or 5 of the pride 32 weigh-in displays were posted around the inside and outside of where the weigh-ins for pride 32 took place. Ruben has mentioned that he has a pride 33 display and Yuma has a few as well. I dont know forsure how many Pride 32 displays were made, I'm going off of how many I saw that day. Yes your right it was displayed in the mental stands.
