1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    For Sale:

    One pre-owned, lightly-used, autographed photo of Stanley van Buren with a woman who, upon further inspection, is possibly Karen van Buren. The writing is mostly legible, but I assume that it was written while in the throes of some sort of debauched frenzy of alcohol and nicotine, and is therefore difficult to read in places. It is possible that Karen van Buren has also signed the photograph, but it’s equally possible that Stanley, unable to hold his pen straight, messed up on his first attempt to scrawl his name. Or perhaps a drunken toddler scribbled something in the corner. I honestly don’t know.

    The ink is black, and although it shows some streaking, does not appear to have bled.

    Features:

    High-gloss, quality print on Kodak “XTRALIFE” paper, ideal for framing or scrapbooking. The colors are very vibrant, and Stanley’s hair appears particularly healthy.

    Condition:

    The photograph is slightly warped, but I do not imagine that this will affect resale value in the slightest. There is one dinged corner, and there are a number of fingerprints. There is also some dust on it, as well as what appears to be a small dab of toothpaste. However, as you can tell from my photograph of the photograph, none of this is visible during the course of daily use. This photograph would be an excellent gift, or a wonderful addition to your own private collection.

    For offers and inquiries, PM me. Again, all profits (minus the 68.73$ shipping, handling and pinot fee) will be donated to the charity of your choice. Serious bidders only, please.

    You can read more about the sorry tale that lead to this listing here.

    Does it come with a chain, so I can wear it around my neck?

    Also, is it waterproof? I'd like to wear it in the shower.

    Lamination would be on you. I am reluctant to alter it in any way, lest I damage its value.

    When I first saw it, I believed its a rare photo from one of the Dolce and Gabbana campaigns. I also searched google for SVB hoping he would turn out to be one of the legendary D&G models :)!!! Man you should've sold it to hermano :D!!!

    At the risk of intensifying the already frenzied demand around this piece- it's pretty clear the value of this photo is surpassed only by the value of the subject's autograph. How is this not in the gagosian?

    any further drop?
    Thanks
