My name is Bryan Walker, and around 3 years ago, i won the Vice City Big Playback Contest that was hosted by Rockstar Games.
As a prize, not only did I get a (then brand new) ATI graphic's card, but I also managed to score a Neon Sign bearing the name of the game.
The other winner (who's name I have forgotten, since Rockstar just took the Contest's site down within the past few months) also won the sign
My questions are simple - Has anyone ever seen or own another sign like these, or are there only two in existence?
I would think that if there were any more, that they were used in retail gaming store to promote the game when it came out, but I'm not sure, and extensive internet searching has turned up nothing on them.
The main reason I'm asking this is that due to consequences I've suffered recently, and against the better half of my gamer's heart, I'm considering putting the sign up for sale on Ebay in the near future. The rarity and quality of the item might push the sales into the thousands, and that would be money put to good use making sure that my car gets fixed, my apartment bills get paid, and I can pay off a personal debt (my buddies have been giving me rides to work, and i hate free rides, so i will pay him back)
Any information would be helpful. I'm posting this same request on several forums, so responses may be slow. If you have any REALLY useful information, you can email me at [email]email@example.com[/email].
I will attempt to answer any questions on the forums as I can, but a response is not always guaranteed.

Aw, I would of won it. Do you know if they still have contests? :P Oh, and how much are you selling it for?
What kind of offers would excite you? I would try setting it on ebay and waiting for the offers to come in.
ill just have to see. I can already tell you that im asking high doller for it. It will take a lot for me to part with it, but i really need the money as well.
Im definatly putting one of those things on it so i dont have to sell it if it doesnt get past a certain doller ammount.
Thats what I would do. Hell I wish I had it, that thing is just too cool.
