Weird Edition of Let Fury Have the Hour (Book)?

Questions, Questions, Questions. You got 'em? We'll answer 'em!
Between 2010 and 2015 I worked at a local Atlanta radio station and one of the things that came in the mail one day was the fantastic Let Fury Have the Hour book cover print. Since the program director and management did not claim it for use at the station, I enthusiastically laid claim to it. It has sat in a poster tube for several years now and I took it out to queue it up to get it framed and started doing some research. The edition must have been some sort of promotional version because while the signature in the bottom right hand corner appears to be from D'Ambrosio it is NOT number in the regular 450 edition that I see listed everywhere.

I can send a picture if that's helpful. Just trying to figure out what it is.

Welcome! Is the poster tube from D'Ambrosio and not Obey Giant? I think you are on to something about it being a promo item since it is not also signed by Shep like the 450 run was. Maybe D'Ambrosio was given some unsigned prints that he signed and sent out to help boost his documentary? Keep the tube for provenance.

OK, I will try to post some pictures. And, unfortunately, I don't have the original photo tube it came in.

I have no idea how to post pictures any more but I found a sample of Antonio D'Ambrosio's signature and this looks pretty spot on. https://soldart.com/shop/shepard-fairey ... een-print/
