From Obey Giant web site (11/10/2008):
“In order to do our part to help OBAMA get elected, we started a grassroots campaign on a street postering level and now the OBAMA HOPE image is now part of history. We produced and distributed over 30,000 posters to be placed in windows, front yards, and businesses. We like to think we made a little difference.
In the spirit of OBEY we have a few of these posters left over from the campaign and there is no need to have them postered on the streets anymore so we would like to offer them to you. The proceeds of these posters will be going to the ACLU. These posters are signed by Shepard …. We only have a limited quantity left so when they go, they will be gone.”
A very limited number of signed Hope pasters were released on two Obama fundraisers in California. It is believed that they are indistinguishable from the signed pasters released on 11/10/2008. There is no 'edition' for this print. It is commonly agreed that only 100 have been signed.
Print will be wrapped in a protective Kraft paper and shipped in a sturdy tube with international tracking and insurance.
