The VCs page appears to have been removed?
Otherwise I'd have bought it then
There are a couple of very aggressive 2000ad original art collectors
And at least one lied outright to a seller in order to secure a piece I was bidding on.
The VCs piece was probably "side dealed" by a collector (i.e. they offered a set amount to buy the piece outright despite the ongoing bidding) . There are a couple of very aggressive 2000ad original art collectors that engage in that awful practice on a regular basis, going so far in some cases as to offer to pay more than the final bid after someone has already won.
