I think this will sway me to not buy the gold Pup Art...

Glad anyone who wanted one, got one. I was on vaca with horrible internet so I didn't even bother.
and the same one just sold for 1500

Reality is that it's very tricky to determine what will remain a "classic" print.
If too many were bought just to flip, as I suspect is the case, prices will stay low.
I'd say his Obama print will always be his best, and most memorable.
I'd also have thought that Bat Papa, Cat Nana would have been more popular.. But I was wrong. Ha!
obama doesn't even rank in the top 5

There's 5 good ones? ;)

Seriously though, which Brainwash prints would be recognisable by an average member of the public, other than the madonna prints and Obama?

Top 5 most recognizable/classic MBW images and top 5 best MBW prints probably aren't the same list for most people.

yeah those would be two very different lists with that said legend is probably my number one ISO. people can hate on him all they want but he has some awesome work both in the quality of the image and the quality of how it is printed/hand finishing he does

So I was one of the luckies who got refunded. Well as you would expect, getting the money from me is quick (same day), getting the money back to me (going on 3 days). This is none of MBW's problem as they refunded and hour after purchase. I am now waiting for paypal to wind its way through whatever bog like system they process refunds on...

Yeah, just really bitching about Paypal and how quick they seem to be able to move money in one direction, but not the other...
