Nothing too extravagant, but I was pretty happy to grab these over the course of the year.

A vintage year indeed:

Some great pick-ups by everyone on here - :clap: Always great to see what other EB'ers are collecting.


2014 was a pretty solid year over all for me. :D Started off with a bang (in late Jan) by picking up an original direct from Josh Keyes himself (and Josh also included the Drift print) - and it ended with a few nice pieces by Mr Horkey.

I am hoping to hang onto all of them for quite a while unless another "white whale" appears to tempt me (which is probably inevitable).

When I discovered all this pretty paper earlier this year, Kill Bill was one of the first properties I looked up. This print rules so hard, and it made me aware of how valuable these things get. So glad I was able to score this without totally killing my bank account.

Image
A Tong print was what got me started in all of this mess, and after viewing his body of work, this piece was clearly his best IMO. I was lucky enough to have been the buyer on only the second recorded sale of this piece in it's 3+ years of existence.

Image
This was a crazy print to acquire for me. I knew that Mondo had something special up their sleeves when they announced a foil print for MondoCon, but I still didn't even attempt to purchase tickets to the showing. I was able to see this print in person while lined up for the BttF 3 drop, and I knew I couldn't leave the con without. I walked around with a sign taped to my shirt trying to trade for this, and it somehow worked. That sign also got me on NerdLocker :lol:

Image
This was a piece that I've only recently desired, but it turned out to be a difficult one to track down. One of the messages I sent out about it finally got read after weeks of no response. Arranged a killer trade, and this will be getting the custom treatment soon.

Image
This one was a sweet pick-up for me. I've been collecting records for a lot longer than prints, and I've wanted this record for a while. One of the days at Mondo's recent flat file sale, I inquired about a couple sealed copies of this record that were behind the counter. I assumed I would get shut down, but it was worth a shot. After David did some messaging with someone, he told me he could sell me one. I opened it up right away and was so stoked to have scored the pink variant. It was definitely my favorite score of the flat file sale.

When I discovered EB I hit the ground running and was able to track down most of the prints I never thought I would even see in person. Hoping 2015 will also be great, but I'm thinking I probably should have bought a couple awesome OGs for what I spent on prints this year.

In no particular order, and photoshopped into a single low quality picture. :wink:
