Nope, just different drop times, 10am and 11am.

It’s Joy Division X Obey. drymounting ‘uge. Perfectly targets shep’s biggest fan’s age demographic with one of that demographic’s most iconic music-related images, plus Andre. Buy all day up until $137.76, hold for 17-19 months, approximate ROI of 148% +/-3% depending on separate resale of included stickers.

Feel free to pm me about a subscription to my e-newsletter with more info on short-term potential, the preferable colorway, future edition advice, Obay Giant drop day tipz, and more. :!:

Meh, hardly “the most iconic image” from the band or that of Ian… AND it might not even be Ian Curtis’ image he’s using here (there’s no mention that it is) although I do think it is. It's a still pict from an obscure live performance at a tiny club in Manchester they played at about a year prior to his suicide. If it is Ian’s picture that is in this print I would hope Shep paid a royalty to Ian’s widow and the photographer/videographer who he’s borrowing the image from, but highly I doubt that too because none of that is mentioned in the details. We only get a loose “inspired by” reference in the sales description.

Obey wearing kids and fans of JD/New Order don’t run in the same circles. At least not as much as Shep would hope that they do. 99.999% of Shep's “Demo” don't know who or what Joy Division is. Fact is, Shep's majority fan base, the Zummies-mall-crowd-wanna-be-douche-bag-hipsters who shop at Hot Topic/Urban Outfitters might know of the cover from Unknown Pleasures (definitely JD's most well known image/T-shirt) because it's worn by every 10th grader in high school but that’s about as close as the crossover gets.

As far as it being the most 'iconic" or recognizable image of Ian Curtis that Shep is using here. If Shep had used the better known image of Ian holding the mic right in front of his mouth (from the same gig) it would be more recognizable or even the radio waves from Unknown Pleasures but even Shep knows better to even bother approaching the remaining members of JD/NO or Peter Saville for permission to use that graphic because it would be borderline blasphemy. It’s one thing if he appropriates an image to plaster on the streets as a one-off, it’s another if he uses it for profit from print sales without compensating those involved. And show this to any JD fan without telling them the name of the print and ask them who they see, they’re more likely to say it’s the actor from 2001 a Space Oddessy.

Agree on the sarcastic flip potential, albeit small, but it does short-term flip mainly because of Andre not at all because of Ian. Long-term value, barely even money.
