Already was 3 sold up to $1499
Most likely shilled to inflat the price and set a price. I guarantee it gets re-lsisted.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Especially Ebay.

Dear Obey Team,

I'm a big fan of the Artwork of Shepard Fairey for about 15 years now and I'm trying since one year to gather a print via your webstore...
It's simply an i.m.p.o.s.s.i.b.l.e m.i.s.s.i.o.n and even today with a prohibitive price of 900 $ the print series has been sold out in less than 1 minutes!!!
I'm not a conspiracy-like person but I'm starting to wonder if your store website is not simply hacked by some interested people which can just swallow all your production, block the others by a sneaky mechanism, and do after that an interesting speculative business.

If you think that it's not the case, I would suggest one small thing: prompt a disclaimer on your website and tell the Giant community which have the big desire to get a Graal print that the process of acquisition is done in less than 60 seconds, ask them to burn several candles during the lottery and why not address some praying for Andre the Giant. You never know it could help. Very sad.

What is that? I haven't played Starcraft (if I'm even thinking of or remembering the correct PC game) in over a decade. I was more of a CS guy. :clap:

Yeah, I've been trying to get an obey for the past few years and have never been able to buy one either. It's insane.
