Shop Around: How much is that Nathan Bedford Forrest in the window?

Folks, this auction for a so-called "rare" Nathan Bedford Forrest print by late, renowned artist Michael Gnatek, Jr., has really captured my attention. First off, I question how rare this print is, and what actually makes it rare. Nothing that I can see.

It isn't an original. It is a 750-of-a-kind, mass produced, reproduction. Yes, it is signed, but so is every single one of the prints by the same artist offered for sale here, and for much cheaper prices might I add. I collect things too, and 750 of something, isn't quite what I would call "rare". Additionally, you can get this print for much, much less than $2999. Whoever paid that much for one of these reproductions is outta his or her mind. Liveauctioneers.com shows that the same print once went for the bargain basement price of $200.

So before you go high bidding on this print, remember what my Momma always used to say, "You better shop around!" It looks like Susan Hathaway has set a reserve price for this auction. We'll keep an eye on that, which should give us an idea of what kinda clams she's holding out for.
