Only minor differences can be seen between the rough sketch and the final painting. On the rough, a peg hole is present at the top middle of the package, and the logo subtitle reads "Rotting Plush Doll."

For the final painting, Gross dropped the peg hole and changed the placement of the logo subtitle (now shortened to "Rotting Plush").

The Topps Vault sold the finished art for "Goodbye Kitty" for $2,278.53 in an eBay auction which ran from August 22 - 29, 2006.
