They had some of these posters at the SWAT show last Satuday so I picked one up and had Shag sign it for me. Framed 'er up today. It's a double wammy - The Bomboras are one of my favorites and I think it's a pretty unique addition to the collection.

Hey Matt - the poster is wicked! Where did you get that frame? I've got a couple menus that could use a framing and the bamboo look would work perfect! Please don't tell me you had it custom made... I've spent way too much on getting artwork framed over the last few years!

Hey John, I got it at Aaron Brothers. It's 16"x20" and only $20+ tax. There's a couple of Aaron Bros. in Virginia, but I'm not sure how far they are from you...

Hey johntiki!

The guys at Urban Posters on Thames Street in Fells Point do a great job framing stuff professionally and they are very inexpensive for what you get. They have a few bamboo frames to choose from.

Tell Kory or Kevin that Lauren sent you!

Yeah, I got that a few years ago, so it would be interesting to know if this is a re-print or if someone found a new batch of them. I think it was the first time I'd heard of Shag, having bought the poster for the Tiki rather than the artist.

I was told that there was a batch of them found @ Hollywood Book and Poster, so I don't think it's a re-print...

By bootleg, do you mean that it's not a first printing of the poster?

Well, it's 11 years since the print first came out and suddenly it's become fairly widely available. As it wasn't limited in the first place, there's nothing stopping the original printers printing up a bunch more. Someone may have printed a batch in true bootleg fashion, then again, these may be from the original printing, found in a dusty box under the stairs....

Anyway, beats me....it would be interesting to find out.
