The last recorded sale on EB was back in '10 so these have been in hiding for quite awhile. I can't wait to see this in the flesh :drool:

Congratulations man!!

:pint:

And honestly I was this close "" to putting a +$400 snipe on it, but realized I'd have to unload some new found ISO's do it.

Good price and looks to be in superb condition :clap: :clap:

Man I'm jealous :cry:

If we all put in for a new Englert Thing, will he come back?
He's okay - I let him keep my Horkey Pan's Labyrinth that I had contributed in case anyone got stuck with a lemon in the swap. I'd say someone stealing from you in your own house is more infuriating than being out an Englert Thing.

Agreed, if the offender is reading this, go drymount yourself.

Well, it takes alot to work my mood and house up for close family and friends to stay here, I cannot even imagine being set to have complete strangers from the internets come over and stay.

Nice! I actually have a buddy who's a hockey player and has that framed on his wall right now. He said he just went onto mondo randomly one day and it was for sale in the store.. back in the old days when stuff didn't sell out in 8 seconds. I sent him the link to that ebay auction and was shocked it's fetching over 200 bucks.

Thanks all! :notworthy:

Yeah, I was quite happy to finally score it and at the price that I did. I had $350 + as my bid, so I'm happy to save the extra $100. This sucker will get framed, but it has to wait for a couple Horkey's and a Ji first. But, I will have a nice place picked out for it right beside the slap shot one sheet I have too!

Shocked because you thought it was too cheap or too expensive?

I'm thinking his buddy was shocked the print was worth that much now.

Lmao... I love it when people use the "averages" as the bible for aftermarket prices

:rolling:

I think, minus the price history, the stats alone are worthy of a +$200 print if not much more.

I am totally in love right now... I got my first Sperry and she is a stunner. The quality of the metallics and "sparkle" can't be captured by a camera-- Plus, I'm a huge Wes Anderson fan and Margot is hot.

Thanks to dr_flie for the excellent trade, perfect packaging and Canadian manners.

Yeah, it's Mucha on steroids. Now how do I frame a beauty like this that is 22" x 62" and two pieces?
