Shepard Fairey Obama HOPE 2008 Campaign Print Hand Signed And Dated
Item History and Pricing
|Type: offset lithograph print||Slogan: "Hope"|
|Country/Region of Manufacture: United States||Politcian: Barack Obama|
This is an auction for one of the original signed and dated Obama "HOPE" offset litho posters from the 2008 presidential campaign, created by street artist Shepard Fairey. Highly desirable and very rare. While many of the original run of prints (unsigned) were used as "pasters" on walls during the campaign or were given away at campaign events (and did not survive or are not in collectible condition), Fairey offered only two signed runs in his... Obey Giant store - the first to raise money for Obama's campaign and the second, on November 10, 2008 to commemorate the historic election, offering the remaining campaign posters to the public. More information on the November 10 poster release can be found here: https://obeygiant.com/obama-hope/
This poster is in near MINT condition, signed and dated, from the November 10 release. I have the original receipt from the Obey Giant store.
Most of the Hope posters you see for sale online are reprints - this is one of the originals.
This print is 24" x 36", dated "08", and hand signed by Shepard Fairey.
It is in near mint condition, with only one tiny crease in Obama's tie (see photos - it is barely visible). Edges are crisp and clean , color is perfect, and it has been stored loosely rolled in acid-free paper in a sealed tube since it was received. It has never been displayed or framed and comes from a smoke-free and pet-free home. I am including lots of photos, including many of the edges, which are nearly pristine - just a few slight imperfections. picture #11 shows the faint crease in his Obama's tie. This is the only Obama Hope poster we will be offering.
*Am listing this with "priority mail" shipping, but will make arrangements with the buyer for insured, secure delivery as per the buyer's request at no additional cost within the United States.
10% of the final auction price will be donated to Save the Children - thank you for bidding!
I have a collection of signed Shepard Fairey posters that I've acquired over the years (have been a huge fan since the early ~2004) - feel free to contact me if there is one you are looking for.
