    I was at the Fowlerville Mi swap meet and saw 2 Robert Williams 24x36 posters Dueces wild, and Years of infamay used in great shape for sale. I asked the guy how much? He said $5? What a great find! I wish evilbay was more like a swap meet.

    Extremely hard to find nowadays... even the prints in really rough shape are going for big bucks

  9. >>Didn't he invent art?

    No - he invented primer and could beat up the Fonz.

    after saying he invented the primered hot rod, who cares what stupid cartoon drawings he made.

    Tom Fritz could do any of his stuff with his feet.
    Move on.
  14. Awesome deal ...I bought 2 of them back in the day out of the back of hot rod for I believe it was 8 bucks for them new .. and bought a few from a RF here on the hamb fro a whole lot more then that, but it was worth it to me to have originals .just stay away from Mid Mo posters on eBay he sells re pops and says they are originals ..
  15. now i like both tom and robt.'s work but you can't compare them the styles are just too different that whole realism vs surrealism
