Yeah, I get a real kick out of whoever that is trying to sell that on eBay. The first time they listed it (this being the third in three weeks) - They had a question:
Q: Will you take $7000 to end the auction early? May-27-08 A: Hi, thank you for the offer. Since there are already bids I can't accept. The buy-it-now price is a steal though... this sold out very quickly on the...more
Too bad they didn't take that offer for 7K! Unfortunately, I have a feeling they may have made that offer to their self. Pretty funny.
I don't understand why Mark would even consider putting out an edition of that masterpiece at the drawing stage when he could've done a framed giclee on canvas of the completed painting like the old days. I would have been first in line! I'm very disappointed
I thought those might go quick. I was lucky enough to get one (first time I ever beat the masses)I can't believe you didn't get one when you had it in your cart. What happened? I wouldn't sweat it too much a bunch of those will end up on eBay.
They sold out in a minute or two. limit 4 per customer of an edition of 500 at only $25 a pop means they'll go quick.
Someone on expressobeans emailed Porterhouse asking if these were of the same edition as previous Rose pins and was told these were a brand new edition :
"Mark Ryden’s Rose Pin being released today is not the same edition as the pin earlier released. It is the same image of Rose, however, it is made from a completely different mold and composed of far better quality materials. "
