Oh yeah, btw... bak.


And Faro, I owe you a couple of things... unless you still want me to hold 'em awaiting your negotiations.

Funny you should mention Texas.  I am dealing with a company with offices in Plano.  One of the managers brought the team a bunch of souveniers: fridge magnets in the form of Texas.  So now we have little replicas of Texas all over the office.  I did ask her why they were so small.  I thought everything was big in Texas.  :lol:

I have a simple answer for this topic.
Who is the grand master collector in any realm of collecting?
The dude or group with the most money........... :roll:

Not to mention luck, timing, and vigilance.  Take, for instance, the 3rd print woody that went for $200.   8)

Mine was like ~$676, although its condition certainly reflected that price at the time.

Wow, that's right.  I had forgotten it was so low.  Incredible.

What about the one Paul highlighted here last fall?  No one seemed to realize it was a 1st print, and it went for around $900-something didn't it?

It did go for ~$900, but I thought that we never were able to figure out for sure if it was a first or second print.

Here is the thread that it was discussed:

the one that got away....


The winning bidder told Paul that he thought it was a first printing, but it seems David was less than convinced,.  :wink: It doesn't appear that we ever came to a full conclusion on that.

It took a single email to the purchaser to confirm that the inside covers stated "2nd print". (Many thanks to them for their honesty, since otherwise I was having difficulty explaining the visible characteristics).
Was kinda waiting for Paul to update, but that wasn't forthcoming... Seemed like a simple enough question to me, anyhow. :)

Re. the 2nd print @ $500. Strange you should mention...
Another saga spooled off the back of one of us stating false price expectations to a seller. Some things don't change around here, alas.
Neither yourself or the previous (eventual) purchaser played any negative role in that; just benefited from someone else who did (IMHO).
