  1. hence why i said make me a fair offer and i wasn't attached to it cuz I'm not a stones fan....
  2. LOL! Watch out, the name calling has begun!
  3. that sounds right... Ferraris are way outta my league (since as someone mentioned, i don't have a "real" job lol). I'm more of a Nissan GTR guy (irony - The Godzilla car) lol
  4. will pm you the link.. this was in my Watched Items list, so it may be too old a posting to still show up in the completed listings search... just don't offer him $500! lol
  5. exactly - and, iirc, this is why the people who were able to "buy" one of the Enzo F40's when they were first released had to sign a contract that prohibited them from reselling the car, if i remember the story correctly... which kind of doesn't make sense cuz now that i think about it, i thought I read that you didn't actually "own" the F40 - Ferrari still owned it and gave you the right to say you were the owner...lol or maybe I'm mixing up models and stories...
  6. he only had the 1 print to sell in the past and it didn't sell at $500 which is why i messaged him - i checked his past sales to see if he had ithers but he didnt. The robert guy in venice cali seems to be able to get/or has a wide variety of prints. the 2 local guys i bought from only had prints from cali. That sammytamar or whatever his s/n is on ebay, has a wide variety also, but almosy all the prints i got from him were damaged and he didn't want to take care of it so i eneded up keeping everything he sent me - which is why i have those extra prints i listed as damaged. i would avoid him like the plague. i figured out how to find other prints because i was messaging back and forth with a seller about how he got some of the rare.ones he had in his personal collection and he told me his "secret": he basically did an ebay search for what he was looking for and changed the filters to show sold & completed items. he would then message every seller who had one of the prints he wanted and asked them 1 or 2 questions - if the print sold, he'd ask if they had any others they'd be willing to sell or know of where to get one and/or if it didn't sell, he'd ask if they still had it and if so, were they still willing to sell it (which is what i did). these are the things inwpuld recommend for you to try...
  7. what's funny is that i have that extra Nashville print, that has the little bit of damage, which I'm willing to trade to someone 1:1 for one of their prints from their country... maybe i should ask for a 2:1 trade..... lol... just kidding, like i said, I'm not trying to take advantage of anyone...
  8. it's actually the April 1st Troubador print - the full size 18x24 one and not the 3 square ones.... it's the only US print not in my collection, but $500 is out of my reach lol...
  9. Unfortunately, facts and truths don't have to be liked, by you or anyone else, to still be facts and truths... As I said, I'm not saying that i like the fact that the prints are so expensive on ebay, but i understand why they are and accept it for what it is - supply & demand. Same way I understand why ferraris are so expensive - limit supply, high manufacturing costs and high demand. Whining about how ferrari is ripping people off because they are priced way outside of my reach, is just stupid.
  10. The glow in the dark new orleans print feels like what you describe - not quite paper but not quite plastic - cheap feeling indeed. it also wrinkles very easily...
  11. If the print sells for $500 though, is it still too high of a price? or is it only too high of a price because you're not willing to pay it? I actually just messaged someone on ebay who had a print listed at $500ish, and which didn't sell, to see if he would be willing to sell at a more reasonable cost. However, if i really really really want the print and he says $500 firm, then i have to decide if I want the print bad enough to pay that. So again, it does boil down to supply and demand and no matter if you want to hear it or not, that's the bottom line - no ifs and or buts. Edit - and sure, like you said, someone could sell something for $100 (which is still a 100% markup) but why should he if someone is willing to pay $500? So using your argument, should a Ferrari be sold for the same price as a Honda, even if the cost to manufacture the cars are the same?
  12. Exactly - the only "fix" is enforcing a limit per person or per ticket. Not an easy thing to do unfortunately, and not likely to happen due to the low number complaints - mostly from thisforum lol. and you are correct about fruits - i had to look it up to verify what you said, but you are right - i stand corrected. The word Fruit is a noun. The word is an exception where the noun is both countable and uncountable. So the plural of Fruit can be either Fruit OR Fruits.
  13. LOLOLOL... I don't sell them for a profit and I've probably spent thousands buying all the US prints for my own collection. The extra ones i have for trade are ones that i wasn't happy with because of minor defects and i ended up buying another mint copy to keep. The ones I posted about today, i posted because i have someone looking to trade prints from his country for some that i knew i could get from a local and i figured I'd give others the same opportunity to trade prints, if interested. How would someone like me collect all these prints for my own collection, if they weren't listed on ebay? do you think every GnR fan is on this forum or even knows about it? Or are you suggesting that "real" GnR fans should travel to all of the different countries and cities to buy their prints in person? So is it ok that some forum members buy more than 1 print and trade the extra one(s) to other forum members? Isn't that depriving another "real" GnR fan the opportunity to obtain a print? Get real - you can't have it both ways and then get pissed off because someone wants more money than you're willing to spend. And you telling me to fuck off because you don't like what i have to say or don't like the fact i destoyed your arguments (with facts) just goes to prove how.much of a child you are...
  14. no, not necessarily a bad human being. they are just human and taking advantage of a broken system - which we could say is a dick move, but so is getting a speeding ticket for 68 MPH in a 65 MPH zone a dick move by the cop, even though "technically" you were at fault...
  15. You must be pretty young - mid 20's? because your logic and debate points are pretty ignorant/childish. The proper education? the proper education would be for the warehouse/printers to make sure their employees aren't taking advantage of the fact that they have access to these prints before anyone else and are withholding them from distribution. Also, some artists and printers may be given a certain number of prints as partial payment, to do wjth as they like. so who knows if the prints j can get from my local guy weren't actually given to them for them to do wjat they want with? These are called Printer's Proofs and Artist's Proofs.. read up on expressobeans.com about different types of prints. For example, Sara Ray was allowed to make all of her different Artist's Prints to sell. And a "real job"? So working in a warehouse or print shop isn't a "real job"? if no one had these "real" jobs, then who would make and ship prints? Again, the issue is that these prints aren't tracked and accounted for at the delivery endpoint or along the way - no one is sitting there at the merch booth saying "these are from a limited run of 250 and there are only 240 being delivered, so where are the other 10?" ripping people off - tough one. they aren't ripping off any 1 person because if there are only 240 prints at the merch booth, then there are only 240 to sell. the missing 10 weren't promised to anyone and then withdrawn, which is what ripping someoneoff would truly be. After all, even if all 250 prints made it to the merch booth, do you actually believe all 250 of those prints get sold to fans? if you do, you're in for a shock. Have you ever seen anyone here with print #1 of a certain design? shit, ever see anyone with #10? Unlikely that you have, unless that person has a connection which I believe the one person on here who has a # below 11, has. The very lowest numbers will probably get distributed to the band, their friends, their family, their management, the concert venue management, the printers and the artists. Do you really think that all 250 are meant to be sold to the public?
