Some of the "better" ones become MTL production runs.  When they made the "Elephant Toss" boxcar, I had to get it, as I've actually seen it.
As has been discussed many times, grafitti is a part of modern RRs, and if you're trying to be prototypical with railroads as the currently are, there's no reason to avoid it.
