I think an Olly Moss SW drymounted set sold for crazy money not too long ago. Like previously stated, with a poster as loved and in-demand as this, I doubt the fact that it's drymounted will really hurt too badly.

I've enjoyed it long enough. It's someone else's turn. I think I'm going to throw it up on ebay and see what happens. Also, I just measured it and the idiots trimmed it too. The whole reason I had it custom framed was because of the odd size...ugh

Side note: When I bought this and the Hot Fuzztival Blue/Red variant, they were "sold out" on the old mondo site but I went to the gallery and clicked on them and there were "add to cart" buttons that actually worked. That was an awesome day.

Haha. I hope someone wants it that badly. Ebayers can be kinda crazy sometimes.

Someones got a screw loose if they pay thousands for this print. Crazy. To each their own but long term thats not a wise investment imo.

Well, paying thousands for any print can't really be a wise investment, but if it makes you happy, then great. I think most people who want this print want it because they love The Thing and Stout.

I paid a couple of grand for mine, and if I ever tire of it and get back at least what I paid, I'll be happy.

Awful haircut too. I've never heard of the height being cut down from 36, but the 24.5 width being trimmed is unfortunately somewhat common on these earlier oversized Stouts. I'd advise anyone buying one to ask the seller to measure before a purchase as a lot of them might not even be aware of the extra half inch if they aren't the original owner.
