and sell for much higher... oh well, hope to get it...
I snagged an extra off eBay. Seller canceled. Said all 5 of his were refunded.

for this drop, the best collective action would have been to let the ebay flips sit for days, keep the price at a low premium, their "investment" cash went to charity (keep the good cause going) and those who wanted the image could of snagged at amplifier(doubling down on the good cause)

I missed the drop. Carted then PP the back to store to prove I wasn’t a robot with a captcha, I did, then got kicked back to print main page. Then I was on eBay trying to grab one. But every time a new “reasonable” listing came up I would click and it was gone already.

Everyone I know that scored did it manually. Everyone I know with bots failed lol
Shep's anti-bot security might actually be working (for a month anyway)
some have 3 - 6 listed for sale. doubt that's a 'manual' purchase.
I saw that also... wtf? Am I completely naive for not understanding how that's possible? (after 12+ years of collecting you would think I would know these things)

Moved into our new house and finally have some more wall space... been itching for a new (small format) letterpress release.
Ask and I shall receive...

MOTHER NATURE ON THE RUN LETTERPRESS AVAILABLE TUESDAY, APRIL 21ST!

The "Mother Nature on the Run" letterpress print was inspired by a couple of things: specifically, the genetic modification of fruits and vegetables by monopolistic corporations, and generally, the pervasive disregard for nature's delicate balance reflected in government policies and societal practices. I've always admired Neil Young's music and environmental activism, so I incorporated his lyric "mother nature on the run" from his song, "After the Gold Rush," into the art. With #EarthDay coming up, I'll reiterate that every day should be Earth Day. We are part of nature, not above it, and when we don't treat our home well, it will eventually not treat us well. We (powerful corporations especially) are behaving like the earth is indestructible… and it isn't! Hopefully, you don't need to be a "nature" person to understand that this planet is the only one we humans and all other species have to live on. We don't need to behave like greedy, short-sighted, pigs, and we certainly shouldn't let our corporations behave that way at our expense and their profit. I hope that anyone who appreciates natural beauty can understand why I try to use my art to highlight environmental issues. Proceeds from this print will benefit the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) to support their efforts to defend the planet. Thanks for caring!
-Shepard

Mother Nature on the Run Letterpress. 9 x 12 inches. Cream Cotton Paper with Hand-Deckled Edges. Signed by Shepard Fairey. Numbered edition of 450. $65. Proceeds go to NRDC. Obey publishing chop in the lower left corner. Available on Tuesday, April 21st @ 10 AM PDT at https://store.obeygiant.com/collections/prints. Max order: 1 per customer/household. *Orders are not guaranteed as demand is high and inventory is limited.* Multiple orders will be refunded. International customers are responsible for import fees due upon delivery.⁣ ALL SALES FINAL. DUE TO COVID, SHIPING TIMES ARE DELAYED.

Some ppl will do double listings because they get loads of free listings every month.

It doesn't always mean they have 2 posters.

They may have one poster, but list is as an auction and list it as a 30 day listing. When and if the auction sells they end the 30 day listing. Or vice versa. If the 30 day listing sells, end the auction (if it has no bids).

Most I see are single listings that say "X available".
