My understanding is that he is on vacation in Thailand.  I wouldn't worry about it at all.  Mike will come through.

I purchased a piece from him about 4-5 years ago, with no issues.

$1300?  No worries, you will be OK with Mike Burkey, one of the largest dealers on the planet.  David

I'm confident I'll hear back soon...just concerning, he was very responsive initially, but after payment...nothing.

Having experienced that elsewhere - I agree, it's very frustrating.

Nothing would make me happier than to go home, and see the piece!  I have no doubt it will arrive, but communication would be nice!  I bought a motorcycle last year from Virginia...took 3 months to make it to me in Florida...but at least they kept replying to me...it's coming, it's coming!

You could have walked there and driven it home in less time...

I understand how you feel. Just know myself and others have dealt with Mike. He’s top notch. The packaging will arrive bullet proof. Please show us what you got once it arrives and you’ve had time to enjoy it. 

Ok we’ve all done extensive PR for Mike. Time for Mike to contribute something to the board, like his take on the OA market from his POV. Start a thread Romitman

I recently made a trade with Mike. He shipped his part of the trade before I'd packaged mine. I've also bought from him, one time and with timed payments. It took months from my end, but the art shipped promptly when the last was made. I trust him.

I too have bought from Mike.  Very stand up guy.  He even let me use him as a reference for another purchase I wanted to make using time payments.  You'll get your art, no problems.

Obviously, Mike is living it up somewhere, knowing he's doing something right.

Absolutely correct. Be careful when unwrapping. 

He's a good dealer. Let me add my satisfaction note. Your problem may be with the mail. I have had that happen.

Hello....

sorry my late message .....I actually planned my first ever vacation overseas and needless to say ....I got swept up into the big Hong Kong protests going on last week....and didn’t get to emails for a few days after flying out to Asia on August 7th.....and I’m now in Thailand.

 

Watch out for those Thai lady-boys . . .

I will second that Mike treats every size deal the same. He gets back within a day no matter what the questions or trade. I have been buying $100 -$200 scraps from him but I know when I am ready to buy my first Kirby it will be through Mike.

Very late to comment here, but I totally vouch for Mike.

Been doing business with him for 20 years. Always top notch.

Whoa dude, zero worries, it's alright to chill on this.  He's very busy, often at conventions etc.  One time I paid and got zero confirmation.  Didn't bother following up, and received the art within a week (he uses a quick shipping method a la priority).

Longtime dealers like him, reputation is more than worth its weight in gold. 

Thanks everyone for the replies...I'm very happy with the art.  I look forward to making this a focus of my future collecting.
