that was the 1/1 edition from gallery 1988 and it was also signed my damon and carlton. i think the framed 1/1 editions were $550. overall, a pretty nice flip.

that was the BIN price too. i bet the seller could have set a higher price and it still would have sold.

huge difference. as far as ratio of profit to cost is concerned, the one that sold for 1800 is more successful

Yes, $50 to $1800, versus $550 to $3500.

There is a distinction to be made between 1/1's versus 'regular, but I think these things set precedent for/influence each other. I'm not sure Locke's would have sold for $1800 if Crash didn't sell for $1250 the week before, and I'm not sure this 1/1 would 've sold for as much if the 'reg' Locke didn't sell for $1800 the previous day.

The Lost print was massively oversold. My apologies on missing one. I understand it's very frustrating. -Todd.
refunded, oh well. kinda feel bad for Todd with all the Lostie crazyness that he had to deal with. people gotta ease up and not take this stuff so damn seriously.

You put dollars in the bank, not percentages.

Maybe Leia realized no matter what she did the poster would be lame cause its about Lost.

Me too. But. He might have been able to avoid this if he took a cue from Doyle/Nakatomi, and just taken emails. Especially when you consider the small amount of prints Todd was selling. Correct me if this sounds off, but if each of his subs got a Linus print, and he has approx 25-30 subs, and he had 50 of these to begin with , then he only had 20-25 or so to sell.

Not a criticism. I just feel bad he's been going through , what, 7 hours of refunding?
