It's funny how they normally show you how many are left for sale in the run, but not this one. Don't want people to see they haven't sold any of this fug print?

They have been up for a while. So are these an additional 150 or part of that edition?

If they have been up for a while, they probably thought they would sell better through 1xRun and 1xRun figured they would grab a $550 commission per print sold while they are at it. Sounds like a great plan.

I kept looking for the print release thinking the $5k was for the original. Not sure how much hand finishing is done on these, but they also would need to include a whole boatload of pharmaceuticals for me to buy it.

This would literally be every drop with minimal demand if the same cart system existed elsewhere. It's actually pretty fascinating to see how many window shoppas there are.

I'm thinking they are part of the og edition of 150 and I imagine Steadman partnered up with 1XRun to see if he could move a few prints. Truth is I've been after this print since they began discussing the edition on FB, but at no point do I see myself wanting to drop $5K on the print. #1stWrldPrblms
