IMHO Part of The Redlin craze was keeping up with the Jones. He was. D.U.s guy no doubt. The Black Velvet comment is spot on.

Another problem with resale is that those ‘investors’ that would be interested have an unlimited supply of future DU prints purchase opportunities coming. Instead of buying a 25 year old piece, one could go to a banquet, buy a print or a different gun every couple of weeks.

For the most part prints are hard to auction at our events. We usually only order the national package, as we can get them sponsored, so we make money on them . Anything with dogs sell good as well as the Ralph McDonald,we attach a greenwing legacy. Sometimes will do the same with a puppy print and it will always go for a legacy too.
The decoys are better money now.

I'm pretty sure i read some where, redlin prints have made DU 15 million dollars over the years. He is definitely top of the money making list. Jim Killen is a dog specialist on his prints. Art lamay has his own style, birds in groups...Killen is hands down the best dog prints IMO. Ralph McDonald does the Kid/Grandfather hunting scenes. We have several in that series. The best of those is the green wing legacy canvas from 1 of our 3 granddaughters green wing legacy memberships.

I have two Redlin pencil sketches that I love. Can’t stand his painted stuff. For me when I look at them I see the same thing. I don’t even give them a glance anymore.

Love David Maass!!
