A lot of orange in here

Yep. Def in line with P&T pricing, and well under current market value.

Start rant\

Seriously, I dont understand the moaning on the prices. So an artist pockets a fair market value on his work & values it as such and everyone complains yet everyone who really badly wants the print at some point or another pays the flipper market out there anyways. Why not give the money to the artist instead who created the art for your consumption and support them. Flipping's a part of the game, I get it and most of you get it, so whats wrong with the artist "flipping" and getting paid?

Its like the recent Daniel Danger drop, read some comments from people whining about his prints being $80 at release... seriously what the drymount?

Cuz now the flippers gotta expect an even higher value so they can get that profit. Maybe the price will scare off a few?

EDIT: this is not an attack on flippers. I flip fudge. Just not posters. #NoDropLuck (so far)

Love the print, the price point and the edition size. I'm glad more money is going to Jason :clap: :clap:

Those prices are nothing new for an Edmiston AP drop either. I don't know about the edition size (70) but... think I paid around $150 for his Rocky IV AP.

Yeah the demand seems to more than support his price, and yeah I'd much rather give it to him, I have the reg but like his variant better, I'll try for it

The lowest price sold according to here is like $172. So...yeah, probably a fair price.

Anyway, such an in-your-face poster...would love to see somebody frame and hang it in a closet. Especially somebody married. :lol:

I think the price is very fair. It is a great looking print and Jason earned every cent he is charging.

Gonna have to rethink this drop
fyi, im not complaining. i have no problem with Jason (or anyone else) doing their drops this way. im just not down for it.

I've never paid triple digits for a piece of paper (and that includes shipping). imo, and no offense to the artists, none of the screen prints/giclees that im interested in are worth that high of a price. its why my collection is tiny and i virtually never buy anything on the aftermarket. regardless of how much i like/want a print i won't overpay for it.

it's just my philosophy and because im cheap.

The price is more than fair for the variant.
A small run of 70 with preferred colors for $175 while a reg with a run of 300 is going for $200+ on ebay.
