Yeah that's pretty great that one item is doing so well; that's 3/4th of a well by itself!

But there is tons of other affordable stuff; even one of my 12x36 montage prints is I think $36 right now. Remember all the money goes to the AWF, not the photographers, so with 108 choices something should look good!

That took a $200 jump since last night. I'm still keeping my eye on a few auctions, but many prices are starting to get a little high for me.

But my Edge picture from last year needs a new friend

good point Otto -

if you were planning to donate to the Bono Birthday fundraiser anyway, this is a way to do it and get a gift for yourself in return

I won 3 auctions and have paid for them so I'm not tempted by any more! I was surprised all 3 of them went for as little as they did. I got four 8 x 10 pictures of Edge and a 9 x 12 of Adam for not much more than I paid for one 5 x 7 of Edge last year. So last year's Edge has some friends now

Happy birthday Bono a few weeks early!

I bid on four and won one . There seemed to be a last minute bid surge on my first choice, but I won my second choice .

I bet we did. I initially bet on 10 of them. I did win my first choice, but had to keep increasing my bid. We could all just move in together and enjoy them.

My photos arrived today in a padded mailer with only a thin piece of cardboard inside, and all five of them are bent in the middle with visible creases

The packaging on the photo I won last year was top-notch; had I known this was the packing that would be used (for a $24 shipping charge for the three auction combined), I would've just made a donation to the AWF and not even bothered with the auction. I've contacted the seller, but I feel like the only solution is going to be to send them back, because these are the only copies of them they have

Are they coming from the same seller/packager? I am so nervous now! I want mine in pristine condition. I will send mine back and ask for another. That's just wrong.I'm sure they can be reproduced by the photographer.
