Check out this listing:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=898495528&r=0&t=0&showTutorial=0&ed=1029382576&indexURL=0&rd=1

The seller has it listed in the category "Antiques & Art:Art:Prints:Contemporary (1950-Now):Limited Editions:Other"
Almost makes you think its a Ryden authentic...

Unethical Seller? In fairness, he did respond to my email and did confirm that it is NOT a Ryden authentic. Also it is priced in a fashion where the average Tikiphile can own one. Its also possible that any potential buyer is simply someone who appreciates it for what it is and not what its worth, but I'm not diggin the misrepresentation of items like these.

The seller doesn't even acknowledge that it's a Mark Ryden print. I doubt that this is a licensed product.

I sent the seller 2 separate questions and he never replied. Loser.

Someone has reported this auction to ebay as copyright infringment, which it might well be, but now I might be out of $9 plus shipping!!!!!

They pulled all these print auctions,I email the guy who sells them to make sure I still get mine. I dont care if its a K.O. it still look nice.
