One of the rarest Halo collector items would be the Ultra Rare Halo 4 Cortana Canvas. It’s a beautiful framed piece of art that was attainable in a Mountain Dew contest.
Halo 4 Cortana Canvas
Memories of 2012, when Mountain Dew and Doritos launched a Halo 4 promotion called Unlock & Load Double XP. This Halo 4 Cortana Canvas was one of 50 available sweepstakes prizes from the promotion. Super cool and super rare.
Your Dew bottle or Doritos bag had a code on it that you would redeem on the promotional site to unlock double XP matches for Halo 4.
Furthermore, the sweepstakes prizes offered were also very impressive. Let’s take a look at them and as you can see, they only made 50 Halo 4 Cortana Canvas to give out, by far the rarest of the prizes.

It seems like one of the lucky 50 winners is stepping forward and looking to sell his canvas.
Nice to see a picture of the cert of authenticity instead of asking for it. Quoting,
Up for purchase is a Halo 4 Cortana canvas print number 26 of 50. This piece was only available through a Mountain Dew Sweepstakes. It includes a certificate of authenticity from Acme Archives. The custom frame cost around $140. Serious bidders only. If you have any questions please let me know.
The piece measures 14”x18” and I had a custom frame created for it.
Lastly, As you can clearly see in the sweepstakes details and the picture below, as well, only 50 of these Halo 4 prizes ever awarded. 750$ seems like a very fair price because it also includes the frame. A very nice collectible for you Halo diehards.
