Get the one that got away as Mondo puts nearly 2,000 silkscreened prints spanning 15 years of the company’s history on auction starting November 29. The circumstances surrounding the sale are less than ideal: Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League is putting his personal collection up for auction, with proceeds going to pay Drafthouse employees at shuttered locations and covering COVID-related expenses for the theater chain. But if you know a Mondo enthusiast whose collection is missing one key piece, this may be your only opportunity to scratch your loved one’s nerdiest, most obsessive itch. Rare, long-sold-out originals from artists Attack Peter, Shepherd Fairey, Aaron Horkey, Olly Moss, and Tyler Stout are among those going up on the auction block, and a press release assures buyers that the host site, eMoviePoster.com, is easier and more fair than both the mad rush to buy a Mondo print when it first goes on sale and the cutthroat atmosphere of eBay. Auctions close on December 13, which is cutting it close for Hanukkah, but plenty of time for Christmas with rush shipping.
Users must pre-register to participate in the “First Ever Major Mondo Print Auction” at eMoviePoster.com, which launches with no reserve on November 29.
