So, I'm curious how this works. I'm still very new to all of this, but I thought AP was for artist proof, which suggests to me only a handful. 5-10, maybe 20. Is that all the AP set is, or is AP just something that's evolved past its original intended purpose, and there are a lot more?

Ok. I see. So that's still pretty low. About like I thought. Just when I saw billy mention them being sold online, I thought it might mean there were quite a few. Thanks :pint:

I wouldn't buy it, but I can really appreciate the creativity of the design.

Stupid opinion.
Well, that's just rude.

That being said, I really like the colors on this.

It's all opinions.
