"Just purchaed everything, all the prints that were left. My family will be pleased that I spent a fraction of the cost for something that is worth hanging in the collection. Also plan on send in to my grandfather as this will hopfully make him smile. As Jasper usually meets with him to play chess.

All in this is a no brainer. Anything you can get for under 100k from the source is a no-brainer.

If you were wondering who offered to buy EVERTHING... ALL of them... it was me and they refused to sell out the remaind piece. So rest asured the control of the inventory in tight, despite me spening over $390,000 from thier studio in the past 5 years.

Good luck all and buy with confidence!!"

"Long time lister first time caller

I have been a follower since the time when we had to send a check to OG via snail mail

In the past 3 years I feel like the community has changed a bit. For the good for the bad..... I will let others discet this.

ALL I know is that I will continue to follow and collect no matter what.

On a side note I have over 200 inches of OG garbage at the framers now that I cannot wait to get on the walls!!

Stay Up"

I found Jean-Michel and Andy more cutting edge at the time. Mind you I was only 9 at the time and did everything my parents told me that was not good. I thought it was great to piss them off in any way i could... I tried to focus on how to start enough buisness selling firecracker, candy, mowing lawns any thing it took to get enough money to buy a Warhol at that time, to spite my parents.

DJ Dump?
just a foil for me today, thanks

The basic Warhol screen prints were still expensive back in the 80's (at least for me as a 9 year old kid) I remember trying to pony up $1100 dollars for one (it took me all summer) and my dad shut me down. He ended up buying it for me, after I raised the money, "just because I worked so hard." I sold that piece to pay for my college so I didnt have to take a dime from my family. I ended getting an acedemic scholarship so I had some padding to start. Still took nothing from my parents.
I have so many questions.

I think when I was 9 years old I was saving my money to buy Big League Chew and Star Wars trading cards. What kind of 9 year old gets hell-bent on saving up his lawn mowing money for an Andy Warhol screen print? I mean, really.
