I just found the name of the 5th print is "Never Mind," if a mod can fix the caption on the pic I uploaded.

Last night they went on sale. My assumption is they sold the special sets first. Call the gallery.

All 500 mini-sets are sold out? Or just the ones with the extra print?

They were allegedly "random." I'm pretty sure they sold the special stuff first. g1988 usually sells prints in order - first come, lowest number. These sets, I asked for two, and got two numbers about 40 apart, 129 and 166. I remember thinking, "weird, I expected like 19 and 20." Get home, open them up, both have special prints. Since the odds of two special pulls are 1 out of 100, and they sold out-of-order, I'm guessing the early birds got the worms. Maybe it was meant to be a deal for everyone actually attending the opening, I don't know.

Note: this could all be bullshit, it's just my hypothesis. But if they told someone all the special sets are sold, well, doesn't seem too "random."

I asked this in the other thread, but when you say "special prints" are you saying you got two of the sketched originals? Or do you mean the "regular chase" one?

OIC. Okay, I was going to be a little upset if I didnt have a chance at the signed original chases.

Thanks for the info

And the word is...

"All the sets have all been packaged randomly, so there is no way to know which sets contain the chase or drawing. And we still have quite a few left."

Nice to know. Buy away people! :)

Not to be a downer, but if they gave away the chase prints early they would have given out the originals first. There were ten, and you figure the 2 girls that work the merch table got one, the dude in the back, and three or four "friends of the gallery." I'd be surprised if anyone off the street got an original. But, and I'm not being sarcastic, good luck man.

There's supposed to be 25 originals I believe.
