All I'm hearing is that a UTBNYC mystery tube sale would probably do okay. :P

Happy holidays guys! :pint:

Probably the best mystery tubes I've ever gotten from any gallery, yet I was still a little disappointed since I lean towards UTB stuff but didn't have any in either. I think the Raid71, Ferguson and Perillo prints made the tubes worth the cost of admission alone so I was happy enough with two of those and the rest were just a bonus. Can't say I'm not jealous of those of you ending up with Pez, Roamcouch or QBics in the tube though!

:clap:

haven't seen any Roamcouch prints yet. Haha probably went to people not in a forum and have no clue who Roamcouch is.

"Wait...is this Akira?"

The UTBNYC stuff was limited to about 20 tubes maybe even less.

Happy holidays btw

Wishing you a very happy holidays Joe, Josh and Arseny. :pint: Thanks again for always going above and beyond for your customers (i.e. your fans)! :notworthy: Looking forward to more epic things from Bottleneck and UTBNYC in 2015! :clap:

Got the 2nd wave of mystery tube today. Guess I should've asked about the Christmas prints because without it, this is pretty weak. I'm hesitant of follow up sales after a successful initial sale because it feels like a cash grab but I rolled the dice. Someone post theirs and prove me wrong!

a cash grab? You basically received a poster that was in all the mystery tubes plus a sold out rhys cooper print valued at the tube.

The poster tube was always 4 for $50. You received 5 prints. So in exchange for the christmas print you received an extra as well.

Yep its my right. I've liked everyone else's more. Plus the Rhys Cooper has quite the creasing on it. The only decent print of the bunch.

you like everyone else's more…..so then the mystery tube isn't a cash grab to complain about….youre just mad that you rolled the dice and, in your opinion, you crapped out. damn, if only there was a disclaimer for sales like this that states that you are buying a tube of prints without knowing what's inside. im not smart enough to come up with the proper term for a deal like that. maybe someone else can chime in.
