    Just stopped by the event, 10-15 posters. Numbered 1-100. #1 is framed on the wall but is for sale in the frame only. Framed will run you $750-950, posters 2-100 run $250-500 depending on the poster. 

    Couple Ames Brothers shirts, pin sets, patches.  Nothing PJ specific outside of posters.

    i have no opinion either way but for the purist poster collectors out there - just curious - does this "reprint" of the 5 foot versions ruin things for you with regards to the original show and/or AE versions?   Just curious. Again, I could care less either way etc

    Does not bother me. But I also would not want to hang a 5 foot version of the poster either. Take up to much space. I'm good with the standard 18x24 or so. But I'm sure some people will really want these.
    ...got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul...

    I think as a one off these are very cool, and even more so on an iconic print like Maui 98 DK. They really pop from looking at the images online and seem to be a real cool rarity. If it became a common thing these wouldnt have much appeal, but as a select few prints presented in this new way - i think its amazing. Seeing people stood next to them to show their size is really eye catching, and Id love to have one on a wall as a focal point. Wonderful idea, if anything they will drive up the original demand imo

    but on the offchance it hurts the value of my maui or DK normal edition, i really couldnt give a damn. I didnt acquire those to make money on down the line, i acquired them simply because i like them, so whatever happens, its all good
  • Hope a couple are available online later. Would be a neat centerpiece for the wall.

    When Ames decided to pull the AP2 shtick in '03 that was over the top. These 5' reproductions are just that.

    I see them the same as the mini posters. Not original run, but they’ll make someone happy. Most people aren’t chasing bigass posters that are impossible to file away - these are meant for display.

    I had to cancel my Seattle trip due to health reasons. Is anyone going to this today and willing to get me a poster if they're still available? If so, PM me. Thanks!
