What prints do you think are extremely undderrated?

A few of mine:

Image
This poster is huge and absolutely beautiful in person. To be for such a classic movie and such a limited run it's hard to belive these sell for such a low price. Plus, original proceeds went to a charity.


Image
An all-star HOF rock band and the father of the silkscreen poster on a 23 year old print... need I say more?

Image
A beautiful, vibrant Chris Shaw image on one of Pearl Jam's 1st posters ever.

Image

Another great Chris Shaw image. The color pops off the page and the details are awesome. Poster dates back to the begining years of the legendary Foo Fighters.

Agreed. Geddes has his devout followers, but there is a lot of people driving the hype train hoping to cash in on a flip. And it looks like it may also win art print of the year, only because the voting is taking place amid hype.

This.

Unfortunate really. Nobody would argue that Geddes is amazing with a brush and most of his images are appealing...but I dont see any other reason why Acedia seems to be the frontrunner for APOTY. Its good, but no APV. There were many others that are better.

I agree with the Matt Verges Jaws print- people freak out when they see that thing- it's a real beauty.
I voted for Acedia cause it's amazing. By far my top pick up of 2012.

This...I was on the fence after making the purchase and was actually going to sell it/trade it. Once I unrolled it, I knew I had to frame it.

Acedia image is better than APV's, in my humble O.

This steals underrated print of the year easy. Tiny run of 35. Only 2 people have put it in their ISO.
That's flying off the radar. Got overlooked in all the DAL crazhypeness.

Scroll down for some detailed shots
