Fairey is pretty hardcore about the ebay stuff until it's in the persons hands. No way some of those that already sold don't get caught by him and his people.

These will be steady @ $400+
How's that? This is a run of 450. What's the last Fairey that's been up at $400? Are you saying that this is his best outta the last two years? No way. These will be no more than $175 when they get into peoples hands.
this is his first image in a few years that has been on the cover of time magazine.

I think because of the subject matter and given the fact that this was on the cover of Time magazine it's gotten a lot more attention than any other print he's done in the last 2 years. It doesn't have to be the best looking print he's done in the last 2 years to sell for those inflated prices. I like the image and will likely frame it and display it in my house.

I cant predict the future but Ill bet you a $50 print it's over $400 avg in 6 months..... :D :D I'd buy this in a heartbeat for $200 right now.

Usually the flippers start underbidding each other on Ebay. With this print the Buy It Nows are all slowly climbing.

what I don't understand is the one on auction at $610 now, but a few lines down there is one for Buy it now for $499. OBO? At this point, sounds like a deal.
