    I found this yesterday at a local thrift store and put it on eBay for $395obo & immediately got an offer for $150, so I decided to look it up - and I did find a pic of it but no examples for sale (there were others from the McDonalds series for sale).
    Is this a rare piece?
    Is it a poster (because of printed name in bottom corner) or is it a a woodblock?
    The colors seem pale; is that how it is suppose to be?
    Thanks all - I appreciate your help.

    Journey, I know absolutely nothing about your item, but I have to comment: that is totally weird!

    Masami Teraoka really is a treasure whose claim to fame is addressing truly American contemporary topics with magnificently executed traditional Japanese technique. I always loved Geishas with Tampons...

    The OPs appears to be an unlimited unsigned print. I thought the offer received was pretty good. You can’t compare it to signed limited edition prints or watercolors on paper but without question Masami is a very well respected and collected Japanese American artist.

    IMO that’s a perfect example of the right piece at the right moment in time but given the popularity of the artist perhaps the OP should go back and continue fishing but a truly collectible Masami Teraoka fine art print will be pencil signed and numbered.

    I sold it for the $150 - it was pale like it'd been in the sun + unsigned
