Crystal shot glass
Iron Maiden family tree

This tin box looks and feels a little bit like the biscuit boxes some of us know from our childhood. Although it doesn't look in any way exceptional from the outside, with its figures embossed into the metal, it contains a real treasure. The shot glass and the Iron Maiden family tree as a scroll held by a signet-ring aren't anything special and will only please those who like non-audio/video Maiden items – collectors only! However, the three double CDs that can be found inside this treasure-chest are absolutely essential for all Maiden-lovers who enjoy rare pieces of recordings and who are interested in Maiden's early days.

Eddie's Archive is the perfect present for those who know a Maiden fan who hasn't got it in his collection yet. Newer fans may be a bit surprised by what they'll hear at first, as Maiden's early sound was quite different to what it is today – but they'll grow to like it too! – and older fans will be given the perfect material to reminisce of their first Maiden gigs and of their first albums and singles. In other words, the purchase of this item is guaranteed to please anyone who's into Maiden – much more than any grotty "best of" or "greatest hits" compilation!
