Thrower print - said on the site: Comes as set of three signed and numbered.

I wonder if he only releases a portion of the edition of these at this low price. Then, releasing additional portions in the future at higher prices on a subsequent release? Also, I wonder if one misses out on this grey edition - does that mean those that entered (and lost) will get a private link to enter a lottery for the b/w hand-finished set? So many questions...

No

It's quite enjoyable and engaging performance art tho!

Listen, I'm just as skeptical about this whole thing as the next guy. But, don't pretend that you know the answer(s)...because you don't. Bunch of Bullwinkles in here...think you know it all.

Banksy to mass produce all items after the fact to deflate the value of it. True performance art and a statement piece to boot!

Ps still put name down for a clock. Office could use some ‘artistic’ flair...

No idea about print size.

Who knows? Those that submitted a request to purchase an item...might find it in their mailbox one day. A free gift (lottery win) from Banksy - because...you know.... stranger things have happened. Sure, sounds outlandish...but, you don't know that won't happen. You guys aren't 'all knowing', so stop with the act.

Wild inferences are wild and entertaining.

Everybody trying to piece together how they get from here > $100K in the fewest steps.

I find the "Solutions for Wealth" tag intriguing.

You don't know the "facts". No one said he'd toss "millions"...but, maybe a lucky few? It's true that some items offered in this GDP sale could be bogus. It is curious that they ask for mailing/shipping addresses. Names/emails would be sufficient for a fake lottery for purchase.

I could be wrong, but I thought I read that the Welcome mat orders were redirected to a 3rd party site for purchase. No idea on the exact details of that order process; other than, someone posting they saw the inventory quantity declining in number.

I wonder if the only legit item for purchase was for the Welcome mat...to raise $ for their cause. All other products can't actually be purchased. Again, so many questions.

Why on earth would you think none of this stuff is actually being sold? You have really bad questions.

Why on earth do you think all items ARE available for purchase? Blue could be correct...that this is a "performance" and the only item available for purchase is the one that money goes towards a good cause.
