I was expect something “fan club” worthy. Like the Fat Royal Flycatcher but exclusive to the “fan club” box.

Anyone grab a SW portrait? I didn't pull the trigger. Bossk was tempting but I think could be found for less.

Not sure how you do that with that many copies sold though? There is a fat bird exclusive to the box, so there kind of was that.

SW Portraits were overpriced. Every other day there is someone selling one on Facebook for half of what he asked.

Not really. Looks like everything sold.

Mike put up a spray-painted cardboard box for $100 and over 1000 people bought it. He could have added another 50% on those portraits and people would have still bought them regardless. They were higher than any recent sales I've seen. Check FleaBay for sold listings.

No sweat off my sack though, respect for knowing his market.
