I mean, I guess you can say they are "rare". Keep in mind, there are probably about 2000+ (if my math is correct) of those cups out there.

EDIT: My math is wrong. That's what I get for using Microsoft Word to "count the line breaks" of his touring schedule

He's played Nirvana about 1091 times. It's his 2nd most played song.

Late to the game here (of posting, not of being a fan). If we're keeping this to rare items, I guess my top ones are:
*"The Authorized Al" book by Tino Ansana & Al
*promotional posters for "Permanent Record: Al in the Box"
*cardboard cutout of Al and his parents (http://www.sebby.org/pictures/2002/alcon/alcon038.jpg) from my retail days promoting a polka collection including his duet, "Who Stole the Kishka", with Frankie Yankovic

Now I don't really own any TRULY RARE Al items though I do have some hard to find items.

1. The Compleat Al
I have an original Compleat Al VHS tape. Not totally rare, but still hard to find!

2. Peter and the Wolf
I have an audio cassette of Peter and the Wolf that is an original CBS Records PROMO COPY, that I got Al to sign at the tour bus once. again, not TOTALLY rare but hard to come by.

3. Permanent Record: Al in the Box
This is my latest find. Just yesterday, I was at a media store and came across a copy of Permanent Record complete with booklet for only $26! In near mint condition! Of course I HAD to buy it!!
