Was it a poster from the RUSH forum? Someone who posts in SOCN? They're pretty limited...

At 100 pieces it will sell out at some point.  It's a 16x20 poster, don't let the tiny jpg fool you, and FWIW, rock concert silk-screen posters that are run in similar numbers start at around $35 and are a fraction of the size usually.  So $50 for a run this small is about right for a poster this size unless they printed it on super-cheap stock with crappy print quality.

I got one.  Not hording any.  They're lasting much longer than I thought, probably because they aren't signed/numbered and the poster market is more for underground stuff and famous poster artists.  On top of that, the merch company has done nothing to advertise it that I've seen.  If I didn't actually surf by every other day, I'd still not know about it.

That's one more than I got.

I'm surprised they're hanging around this long too.  I figured it's a no-brainer for those looking for anything with "Rush" on it. I still think they'll sell out.  Maybe people still blame Neil for ending the band and are boycotting Rush......

Highly doubt the last 3 words of your post. I don't think most Rush fans are like fraroc with the "blame Neil" chip on their shoulder.

It probably took a little while to sell simply because of the p-r-i-c-e.
