Hopefully the Jordan UNC print skyrockets. I picked up the 24x36 Fairey signed one for a mere $249 in 2018...half the drop price. Crazy what people look past on eBay. Now if I could only figure out how to get MJ to sign it.
i was going to go for the 24x36 a month or so ago but the 18x24 are more appealing to the amount of space i have to work with

I see a lot of prints say offset, what exactly is offset? A different printing technique? Besides the difference in size of the original prints vs this one.

interesting, offset should in theory produce a higher quality image? but cheaper because it is less manual.

There's also very different degrees of quality with "offset printing".

That goes for every printing method. There’s lower quality stuff and then there’s high quality fudge. You know it when you see it. That’s for gd sure.

very few offsets, imo, work better than their 18x24 versions, war by numbers is one of those

are most of his offsets different size than the original? i assume the reason off-sets are cheap is that they are open?
