Just a quick note to see if you are finding the same conditions I am regarding Nagel collectibles. For one thing, the supply of signed, numbered lifetime serigraphs seems to have dried up completely, with only a few diehards offering their pieces at prices not seen since the eighties. Most are asking between $1,500 and $5,000, although I doubt any are really selling. Recently, "Joan Collins" was listed for $4,500. A double sheet of Standing Lady had been listed for $1,600, but disappeared after the price had been dropped to $1,000.
The bargains seem to have disappeared, with non-collectibles, such as signed-in-screens (SIS) being listed for what we were paying for collectibles just a year or two ago ($450 to $1,000). I haven't seen ANY originals on EBay for quite a while; what few I have seen have been listed at auction houses like Heritage,
If you've been collecting the signed lifetimes, you're looking pretty good right now -- and I suspect things will improve from here.
Let the group know if you've found anything new or different!
BTW, the Nagel biography is selling well! Great reviews on Amazon!
