Riggs paintings. What would you pay?

Discussion in 'Maiden Chat' started by where_eddie_dares, Mar 27, 2004.

  1. What would you pay for Riggs original painting of:

    1 The Trooper
    2 Powerslave
    3 Iron Maiden
    4 Live after Death
    5 Purgatory
    6 NOTB
    7 SIT

    Id expect to have to shell out a whole bunch, but heres my guess:

    1 1000 pounds
    2 500 pounds
    3 1500 pounds
    4 750 pounds
    5 600 pounds
    6 NOTB 2000 pounds
    7 500 pounds

    What do you think? Am I totally off the mark here?

    you are one cheap bastard! lol But since i'm dirt poor I think those are reasonable prices except for powerslave. 500 pounds? no way 1500 easily

    I think the SIT painting is worth more too, with all it's details!

    This is nuts! Those are masterpieces, at least to Maidenfans. Expect to see prices in the tens of thousand pounds.
     
  5. Yikes Ive struck a chord [!--emo&:blink:--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/blink.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'blink.gif\' /][!--endemo--] . This is why I posed the question. Cause I certainly dont have a clue what the art is worth. I gauged my prices based on worldwide popularity, NOTB being the most commercially successful and Iron Maiden being the first one. I tried to think of it not as a fan, but as buyer in a realistic situation.

    I personally would want Powerslave if I was loaded. I would pay anything for it. 100,000 pounds if necessary, or Id give up a lung. Its my favorite by far with SIT and LAD close behind.


    And yes indeed, I am perhaps a cheap bastard as well [!--emo&:D--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/biggrin.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'biggrin.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

    I would like to own them all!!! [!--emo&:p--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/tongue.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'tongue.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

    But as LosseCannon said, they're probably worth a fortune each one of them!

    Probably more like hundreds of thousands for the older ones - especially the original NOTB painting.

    For a bonus point - the NOTB cover was originally meant to be the cover of which single?
