Eddie Vedder Handwritten Lyrics (Pearl Jam) PSA Graded GEM MINT 10 w/COA From Vedder
In 1995, Pearl Jam backed up their long-time idol, Neil Young, on his album "Mirror Ball." Contractual limitations prohibited the use of the band's name anywhere on the album. Young then returned the favor by playing with Pearl Jam on their two-song EP, "Merkin Ball." The artwork of the packaging was identical except the word "mirror" was replaced with "merkin." The lead song on the Merkin Ball was a track titled "I Got Shit." Here offered is the ultimate Pearl Jam display that includes Eddie Vedder's original handwritten lyrics for "I Got Shit." In offering this collection, there exists a background story that further enhances the appreciation for Eddie Vedder. Eddie Vedder has proven himself time and time again to be a talented musician, singer and accomplished songwriter. In the eyes of the public he is a true rock star. What few people know is that Eddie Vedder is a caring human being and a real gentleman. In preparing the sale of this collection, PSA/DNA was unable to authenticate Eddie’s handwritten lyrics, making the sale of this item moot. In learning the importance of this sale for our consignor, we sought out to Mr. Vedder for authentication. He graciously took the time from his busy schedule to examine the handwritten leaf, and then contacted us with the good news that the lyrics were indeed removed from one of his notebooks and he verified that it was his handwriting. Mr. Vedder then accommodated our request for a letter authenticating the lyrics. And again, he took the time to write a letter for us on his own personal stationery and forwarded to us. In addition he also included a signed cd cover of Pearl Jam’s “Rearviewmirror.” The letter he submitted reads “Yes I did write the actual lyrics to “I Got Id-.” Later, “I Got Shit”-. Thought it may get played on the radio, so initial title was kept as “Id”-. They came from my notebook – don’t know how they got ripped from the book. Don’t think they were stolen, but it’s a halfway decent song. So I approve. All the best, war is over, if you want it.” He then signed the letter “Eddie” in black felt tip. The display also includes the CD cover and CD for "The Merkin Ball." The lyrics are fully authenticated by Mr. Vedder’s letter. This LOA can also be considered memorabilia and all come directly from Eddie Vedder.
