That is a cold hard fact. However, most of the numbering snafus occurred on smaller/variant runs, and most occurred in and around his move from L.A. to Portland. I think 150 is a good number on the artist edition of this print. If that ends up not being the case, I will pass along that info (and try to figure out what I should do with #138).

It will clearly be rendered devoid of any value whatsoever and should be sent to me for immediate destruction.

it is going to be funny that people paid 1500 for one of these when we find out that there are like 250 of the around

Now this is funny coming from a person with a feedback of 1.

ADDITIONAL TERMS:
I will only ship to a confirmed PayPal address so do not bid if your
Paypal address is unconfirmed, or your bid may be canceled. If you
have 0 feedback on Ebay, you must contact me before buying. If you do
not contact me before buying, your bid may be canceled.


I don't know about you guys, but I think somebody may get burned on this one...

The BS thing about confirmed Paypal Addys is that they don't exist for most overseas customers. EG - no one in Australia is considered a confirmed address, evenr though I have my bank account and all details with them.

There aren't 250 artist edition posters, there are 150.

I CONFIRMED with Emek that there are 150 in the edition. The ebay seller is either not telling the truth (most likely), or the poster was numbered out of 100 by mistake (possible, but doubtful). THE IMPORTANT THING TO TAKE AWAY FROM THIS THREAD (when making a decision on whether or not to buy or sell this poster) is that there are 150 prints/posters in the artist edition, 50 white edition, 20 pyro edition & 20 hydor edition, and THAT'S IT (save the stray A/P).

One of the smart things I have seen was a Firehouse print where the total run number was actually silkscreened onto the print, that way it cuts the numbering in half because they only have to number up from 1.
