fifty years from now, he'll still have some spare The Thing prints lying around for mystery tube sales.

Nah- what happens here is that old employees of Mondo and Alamo- who I gave the prints to originally back in the day, are now selling them back to me. I'm paying them fair value for them, and then just giving them away in these tube sales. I rationalize the expense by knowing that some people buy these mystery tubes JUST for the older prints, despite the fact that isn't really the intent, but I can't control that. I actually have a very sparse poster collection, and don't consider myself a poster collector at all. If I don't think I'm going to hang it, I don't buy it.

But at this point, I think I may have re-bought almost all of the prints I gave away, with some notable exceptions.

As far as if it bothers Tyler or not- I really don't know. I hope not-he's a very nice person. I can think though- if this bothers him, he must feel very bothered by all you here who only see dollar signs when you hear of a new Stout release, and all the flipping/scalping that occurs.

Oh come on. That is absolutely the intent. And you can absolutely control it. You could start by not advertising it like a used car salesman. Just announce the sale and slip the prints in random tubes without telling anyone. But we all know that isn't gonna happen, you advertise the way you do specifically to get people to buy these worthless tubes just for the chance at an old Stout. Which is fine, it's no different than a raffle, but dont try and claim otherwise when your intent is so transparent.

Glad to know you equate your mystery tube sale with flipping/scalping. Maybe we agree on more than I originally thought, and yeah drymount TYLER STOUT, who gives a fudge what he thinks, right?

The saddest aspect of these sales is that Doyle's art isn't high quality enough to move these tubes on their own so he needs to offer another artist's aftermarket work to make money.
