This print is pure awesomeness, I'm so happy I was able to get it. My first successful poster drop of my young collecting life! :clap:

Makes me sick seeing so many of these up for sale, bought on the drop with no intent to keep it. Is a hundred bucks really worth stressing on the drop, marketing the print, and shipping the print? Not to mention the risks involved with damage during shipping and shady buyers. :hanging:

There is this new term called "flipping".

Not sure if you have heard of it. I guess a lot of people do it, and a lot of people get upset about it. I wouldn't worry, after the initial hype, these will come down in price or you will see them in the HUT. Be patient.

At first I didn't think I would like the color palette, but after seeing the actual photos, this looks goooooood. A nice change of color for the Obey team of artists.

Anyone purchasing to flip wasn't "stressing" on the drop, as they obviously do not care about the actual print. Marketing? :lol: You mean creating an ebay listing? That should take all of 4 minutes. Shipping? You mean printing a new shipping label on a tube and purchasing insurance to remove any risk from the transaction? So...to answer your question, is $100 profit really worth the 15 minutes of effort? For most people, the answer will be yes.

Which makes it even more odd that this one is selling for so low initially.

Mothership has a run of 100. Celebration is three times that with a run of 300.

My bad. Only 100 were for sale. The other 300 were given away by the band.
