Looks like most of the editions were sold out quickly. I assume some of the OGs are left.
Huh?

Series prints now? :lol:

Sorry I mis-calculated. I didnt see the different tabs on top. That total is just the edition prints

The total for all edition, canvas, series, and 1 of 1 prints is $2,467,750

Most (if not all) online retail purchases are Shipment Contracts with the risk of loss on buyer; Seller simply needs to safely deliver good to carrier. UCC §2-504.

There is still an implied warranty of merchantability or particular use that is not waived by the disclaimer if your prints are injured!

While I agree, this release is beyond lame & overkill...

Buying & holding MBW will work out 95% of the time. I regret all but ONE MBW flip. To say there is no MBW market is a fallacy.
Good luck man, still up and did not see anything sell out. I think the jig is up for this guy.... slowly losing his hype. But good luck on the flip if you grabbed one.

His stuff still does ok a couple years out. The problem is that he is getting a bit greedy. cut the prices in half and everything sells.

I tried to add a couple prints to my cart at 9:05 and eventhough the button is there, several are sold out.
Try checking out in paypal and yoh will see as well.

Took me 10 minutes just to add up the total number of prints, variants, 1 of 1, etc but if my calculation is right it's 1,166 total Ali prints totaling $3,113,250 if everything sold out
