  1. It's where they numbered it. I'd take a photo but I just got back to my hotel and I'm exhausted.
  2. Everybody - A WARNING Some guy on Ebay from Thailand just listed Bangkok "lithos" https://www.ebay.com/itm/142581432157 Under the description of "Original/Reproduction" he has written "Master artwork published in Thailand" which to me makes it sound like he's trying to pass it off as original. HOWEVER THEY ARE FAKES. He has listed the size as 18" x 13" but I have both Bangkok lithos and the real lithos are MUCH larger than that. I don't want to list the exact dimensions just in case these people making fakes are reading and want to try to improve on their fakes but the real lithos are multiple inches larger than these pieces of shit.
  3. I don't think they're changing the poster size. This is not the first time they've released non 18" x 24" lithos. New Zealand, Singapore and Bangkok were significantly smaller than 18" x 24" as well as Europe. Even Europe weren't all the same size (Vienna was slightly narrower and Paris was even smaller overall). Sao Paulo is a weird like, 19" x 26" or something and Buenos Aires is narrow. Nashville 2016 and Nashville 2017 were both special prints made by the local Hatch Show Print guys and apparently that's 'their thing'. Tulsa is definitely a very different shape but I'm not taking it to represent the lithos yet to come. I don't mind the odd dimensions from time to time but I'm going to hazard a guess most, if not all of the upcoming US lithos will be standard in size.
  4. knew it off hand. I'm a huge movie buff and every movie buff knows it because it's an iconic image
  5. based on the French silent film "Le Voyage Dans la Lune" (A Trip to the Moon) by Georges Méliès
  6. I mean, I don't doubt it's possible it could be a numbering mixup - after all I've seen multiple anomalies when it comes to litho numbering. I've seen a legit litho numbered like "x/300" when it was actually limited to /250. I've seen the same litho numbered in different colored pens (one was black ball pen, another was blue). A small bunch of Philadelphia 2017 were numbered upside down - Instead of being numbered in the bottom right, the person who was numbering them didn't realize they had the box upside-down, so the ended up being written in the top left of the litho and upside down
  7. Yeah, that's definitely very strange.
  8. Might be bad timing. I just looked again and it isn't on Ebay anymore. Looks like a seller sold two of them in the past week for $199 with Make an Offer - so I'm sure they sold for considerably less than $199. That's pretty reasonable considering how tough it has become to get lithos from 2016
  9. Did the other auction also steal your photo too? Was it the same seller? You bought yours personally, so you know they're legit. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
  10. I vaguely remember a story of someone apparently having the same number as someone else and they both could verify that they bought it personally from the venue - so essentially, it was a numbering mistake by the staff writing the numbers on the lithos. Sure it's possible but I think it's slim. I mean, if he really did have a #196 then why would he need to steal your photo? Why not take a photo himself?
  11. I thought I saw a Nashville on Ebay for $199. Seems steep but considering they were going for $400 only six months ago, that might be your best option. Did we ever figure out who it was on the Nashville 2016 litho? I forget.
  12. I don't know what that other seller is doing. I'm guessing he has a real St Louis litho and he's just a lazy motherfucker and stole someone else's photo, because I've seen that happen many times.
  13. If it wasn't for Ebay, I would not have been able to get many of the lithos I have. I might not like the prices from time to time but I'd rather that option than no option at all. It's pretty frustrating when you're in a "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!" mood and there's nobody to buy from
  14. Ebay sellers/flippers give people an option to buy something they wouldn't otherwise have an opportunity to buy. In the grand scheme of things, I'm fine with this. @pastortine, what I would do is just watermark your photos to prevent other people from using them. I think that's about the best you can do.
