I never said Phish posters weren't tanking??? I said they would always retain value because they were for a show.

As far as the person saying something about Phish. I think you have it wrong my friend, most people collect Phish posters to remember the experience of the show they were at, so they will always retain value as people will always want to remember these shows, especially when they get older. These faireys don't have that same option unfortunately.
"lots of phish fans are concerned with value, especially after all those posters took a fudge."
And I pointed out to you that most phish fans don't buy prints so they can cash in on them years from now, that they mostly buy them to remember the shows they were at. And BTW no single Phish poster has ever gone for 10k so I dont even know where you get that information from. Sets have sold for 10k but thats it.
Is the person concerned, probably, but your talking about 1 incident and using it as a basis for all Phish prints. IMO, anybody whos pays 10k for any print is an idiot....
The people who paid 7-800 for a pollock and could now only get 400 maybe, I betcha arent concerned because they bought the print for the right reasons, which is to remember a show they were at, and more than likely the print won't leave there possesion for a long time.
