I HAVE to make a separate list for OG's and prints, otherwise Nesting wouldn't make the cut and that's just not acceptable.

Top 5 OG's for 2013

1. Horkey Aepyornis pencils

Hoping next year is the year of the older prints, but these were my favorite pickups from this year. LOTR reg was acquired this year though.
Love the Laurent Phantom and am glad it is someone's top list.
