    Hi, i want to get some Think Different original posters, but there's too many versions and it's almost impossible to understand which is original.

    Can anybody help me with the purchase?

    For example i've seen some Educator's sets, but they all have a grey and non coloured Apple logo, are they fake?

    Regards

    If they look good, fill the bill, and are priced reasonably for such a large print, who cares?

    An ad listing that makes false claims should be the issue your concerned with.

    Yes, but i've read a lot about fakes around the internet and since i want to keep them for 20+ years, i want to be 100% sure what i buy is authentic

    For example there's a lot of people selling from Germany, i'm not sure if they're 100% authentic

    I'd have to say that a "fake" produced yesterday, as a quality product, that being printed on quality paper, with decent ink would look as good as to be expected 20 years from now.

    Printers are only going to get better, and more accessible.

    These things are not "investments".

    Yes, and i'm pretty sure about that

    But i'm not spending 100+ $ for a reproduction which i can buy for 30$ or less :D

    ..and that's my point. There's a flip side.

    I'm not spending $100 for something when I can get the same thing for all intents, for $30.

    The same image, on the wall, framed or whatever I do with it.

    A sheet of paper, with ink. Ordered by the thousands and given away for free.

    Fake because Apple didn't pay for it, or real because it physically exists.

    As I said, if a seller is claiming "this is real", and it's not- that is the problem to be dealt with. Vote with your wallet.

    Why can't you simply realize that collectors do care about this and that value depends on authenticity, wether you like it or not. And its not the same intents. If you want a poster to look good on your wall, fine. If you want a picture that looks good on your wall and is genuine, don't vote with your wallet. And with that, 90% of all posters on ebay are fake ;)

    Is there anyone with an authentic Feynman poster that would be interested in selling?

    Exactly.

    For the moment i've paused the research, can't seem to recognize what's authentic from what's not

    If you have not already done so, there are several guides on eBay that can help with spotting fakes.
