the holy grail...

Post by rich » 16 Feb 2021, 22:46

I see an incredibly rare 'baby hand' hand-stamped Think Tank promo is up for auction on ebay (nothing to do with me BTW).

It's being sold with a copy of the petrol head version. I wonder what they will go for? Maybe £800 for both?

It's a nice little banksy visual pun ;)

Haha, I'm watching this auction too, just to see the final price! Anyone know more about this baby hand version of the cover?

ebay auction ended early - I guess they sold on another site?

No way this went for anywhere close to 400 quid; I've never even seen this artwork and I'm a poindexter enough to be on a Blur forum in the 2020s.

The Paris Hilton CD single is going for 1000 USD and I don't even know what Banksy had to do it with it, but something. I can imagine that was far more published, probably a lot less held onto though...

(by the way, this is a better set of art than the absolute stinker Think Tank is. Banksy sucks. middle-class faux-intelligentsia, obvious politics. you know an edgy artist isn't edgy when your parents are even over him. file under: Jamie Oliver, moving to the sea or the country.)

it would have been sold away from ebay which is why the auction ended early

Huh. I got the gas pump one, but never knew of a different version.
