Default What Would You Pay?

I am doing a 24x36 inch painting for the Negro League Baseball Museum (NLBM) of the 20 Negro League players who played in a MLB ASG including Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Brooks Robinson and Ernie Banks. The painting is going to be made into prints that are sold with proceeds benefitting both the NLBM and us.
With a print at 16x20 inches that is signed by the 7 still living members of this group including Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Brooks Robinson and Ernie Banks, what is a cost you would be willing to pay?

I'm not interested in those players but I'd say five hundred is fair.

Hi Absolon - I agree with the 500.00 price. When are you starting the painting?

FYI to all GUU members - Absolon is truly a talented artist and as a proud owner of 10 of his paintings, I encourage you to check out his work!

I have had a mixture of votes so far from everyone I have talked to. Has been 2 people for $500, 4 for $1,000, 1 for $1,500 and 1 for $3,000.

Jeff, you actually own 11 of my paintings

Hahaha, just realized I typed Brooks instead of Frank. It is Frank Robinson.

Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Larry Doby, Monte Irvin and Ernie Banks.
Signed by these players:

Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Monte Irvin, Minnie Minoso, George Altman and Don Newcombe

The picture is pretty bad, but it is better than nothing!

Nice work!
I would say retail at least $1200 but limit to no more than 100pcs.
It costs at least $500 give or take a few to just get the autos so I don't see
any room for markup at $500; not to mention the time and effort put into
creating the piece and getting all the autos. Unless you have all 7 guys
signing at once at the same location, there's a good amount of expense associated with shipping 16x20 prints all over the country.

Again the keyword here is retail. Wholesale at 40-50% off and let some
dealers make a couple hundred bucks.

Just my 2 cents however if the guys are signing for free I would say
$500 is fair.
