Your reports are stupid.

UPDATE: These are sold out, so this post seems a bit moot. Also, get ready for Parks & Rec and Eastbound & Down poster reveals on Monday!

Alright, so someone came into the gallery and said that because we posted a warning about damage during shipping, that "lots" of the Daniel Danger prints are "damaged" by reports. This couldn't be further from the truth.

There were about 6 or 7, of the 200 we have, with "damage," that in reality only bothered the two dudes who probably started the rage. These guys bought 2 or 3 at the PaleyFest, obviously looking to sell (so get mad at them when it sells out and the prices are $150 on eBay, it's easy to track now). These were on the top of the pile, everything below looked perfect. People who bought the prints at PaleyFest were actually fans of the TV show (GO FIGURE!), so they weren't quite as buggy about the small damage. They were thankful. Those are now in their hands.

The ones we have currently are in mint condition. Keep in mind, it's a black print. If you've seen some of our black print sales in the past, we've put warnings (especially in Daniel Danger cases). If you hold these things too long, a smaller than a penny mark could be seen. It's just a warning that these are fragile. Cause they are. We've also had warnings posted about prints coming to us fully dinged, and explain that they are now available at a lower price because of it (as recent as the John Hughes show).

Much like Charlie Sheen, the rumor got a little out of control. We have 15 left at this moment, so it'll be sold out pretty soon (although I'll have about 5 at tonight's True Blood event). Once everyone gets them in the mail, and they look REALLY pretty, this will all feel very lame. Until then, let's hold hands.

I got 2 at the Paley show and they were perfect! Such an awesome print, thank you so much! Can't wait to see what the Freaks and Geeks print looks like!! XD

I've never had any problem with anything purchased from your gallery. Thanks for squashing the rumor, I purchased one before I even heard about this (again gallery 1988 is always dependable) but it's nice to have reassurance.
