Got This Amazing C. Jere Sculpture This Weekend...Yeah, It Was An Awesome Weekend. Status: Signed And Tagged.
This was at Friday morning estate sale number 3...no no, wait...let me rephrase that. This was STILL at Friday morning estate sale number 3 when I got there at about 11am! It was even shown in the online preview pics (although, to be perfectly honest I wasn't SURE it was a C. Jere until I had it in my hands).
It was totally the tag (my second tagged Jere) that got me. I didn't even see or recognize the
signature / date until just a little earlier this evening when I spotted a siggy on another one of
these in a picture on an auction site. I then took a closer look at my piece and realized I had
actually thought the siggy was some sort of staining on the brass! It's not real clear but once
I knew what I was looking for and where to look, well...it was just obvious.
How lucky is Mr. Modtomic? This is how this went down. I walked in the front door, spotted the
Jere, geeked over the tag, paid the nice lady, immediately took it to the car and returned to do
some shoppin' / photography. Ever get like that? It's like....Giddy Paranoia! No? No one else? Do
I perhaps need to be medicated? Maybe it was just the lack of sleep. I hate lacking stuff.
If you've been reading Mr. Modtomic (reading...that's rich...like anybody drops by for the words)
you might remember my first signed and tagged Jere. What is it with people not removing the tags?
I've found two this year and Bopfish has one too.
I'm pretty sure someone else will have one soon too as I'm gonna let this one go. It's going to
end up on my C-list ad and would make a great Christmas present...or Halloween present or
whatever. It'll just look great on your wall!
