When i first loaded the page to buy it said 78/200 sold. i bought one and loaded their homepage again and it said 197/200 sold, so i made a 2nd purchase. I wonder if thats the print # we get? Well, maybe not the 197 print (that may be part of the 2nd edition numbered 201-300), but I wonder if I'll get print # 79. I'll follow up and post what # I get.

As for the extra 100 prints, I'm really indifferent about the decision. People who know me on here know this is super contradictory to what i have previously posted before. Its a super small print (and a great image) and its a great way to get Jeff's work out to people who wouldnt normally buy one of his regular sized prints (this includes me). And its for charity (I think Jeff and TS will do the right thing and increase their donation by 100-150). But if they refunded ~100 people (including me), i wouldnt have been too upset.

You'll get a number fairly close based on when you finish paypal. I tried to get #1 and #100 (that's what it said when I logged into paypal)in the Kehoe sale but ended up with #3 and #99 - Withthis one selling so quick the numbers you get may be even further off though

I got #100 on the Kehoe. I was watching it like a hawk. Was a bit bummed to see the #'s were on the back though.

I actually loaded the page the second it appeared apparently because I clicked add to cart when it was at #5, and I got through it and even reloaded it and it was at #8. So who knows but as soon as I got the last page loaded that said #8 of 200, then all heAll happened to the server...

I have bought stuff for a long time and never even checked and see if the number matches when I checked out..

Do they just shrink a print like this? Or is there some type of a new drawing ? Stupid question...I know but have to ask..

I support the no more than 2 logic. B.S. if someone is sitting on 10+ let alone 3 or more

Yeah same here with the Keyes ... Never showed up and they would not give me a refund even though they could not prove they actually shipped it. ... It's pretty sad when a company would rather lose a customer than refund someone 20 bux or send them another one.
I had the exact opposite experience. After a few weeks (and after everyone else on EB seemed to get theirs) I emailed asking if it had shipped, they apologized and said if I never got it there must be a problem, and they refunded me right away. Simple, quick, awesome. So, I just want to vouch that Tiny Showcase has great customer service in my book.

As far as I know it is just a married couple who does all of this. Sometimes there are even cool stuff like different trees bent out of metal. They have some of the coolest stuff. They are super nice and very helpful.

Just come on by my MI crib and you can enjoy some art with it!

Remarkable experience....I didn't know who he was until he floated back into Sherwood forest and some folks asked me if I knew who I just partied with!

Such love and magic at Rothbury!!

Im glad I got one of these. I love Sotos work and only have a few of his pieces. I had 4 different browsers going and at one point I must have had like 8 or 9 in my cart total but I just let em go. I didnt want to be that kind of dick.
With great mustache, come great responsibilities.
