:lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah, I think my plan now is to skip the drop, sell Kramerica one I don't have for $300, buy two for $300 and send him one. Everyone walks away a winner.

edition of 400 and the weakest letterpress yet image-wise means it wont be too bad of a drop. As long as everyone that misses out doesnt jump at the early listings at 3x cost it will be available for months at the 100-125 range max

Well, whatever it may cost in the future, I'm gonna try for one: for the thrill of an Obey release and for the image as it has some meaning to me.

Any tips on how to score one? Come on, don't be selfish :P .
I/ve never tried for one. Do they always drop at the same time?

LOTC (that's letterpress of the century for all you noobs).
pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

The last three sales of the first edition of 200 were $400, $260 and $202. I can't imagine this letterpress outperforming the larger sized and smaller run first edition.

I never said flop. If offered the first edition of Mustard and Navy or Chinese Banner, most right minded people pick Mustard and Navy.
I think this wins in the design/layout dept because it's the more visually appealing of the two, but the colors don't make it stand out. If you put the two side by side, the Mustard and Navy will take your attention almost every time, it would stand out from across the room; I don't think the Chinese Banner will do the same.
I agree. I think the size is going to make it hard to see from a distance. youre gonna have to get up close to see. This is a sticker, not the same banner, but you can see Shep tried different things. Adding the black would have made it better. #lazyprinting
