I think the Paul, John and George posters are ok. I'm not sure a naked shouldered Ringo holding a dove is something I ever want to be greeted with when I wake up.


My favorite is the Paul poster, Moog.  It's the easiest to look at...

This one?


Yeah. The ad said that you could get it free if you bought the four psychedelic ones.



It's got the whole swinging group!

It was 1968 and those posters were far out!


They still are. WAY out!  ;D

I must've given the banner to my sister, Kelley.  I was only interested in the psychedelic posters.

Anyway, the first eBay purchase I ever made, about fifteen years ago, was the set of four on mounting boards.  They're in better shape than the ones I had on the wall.  I think I paid about 75 dollars for them.

I think you got a good deal, Barry. They seem to be going for more than that now, at least for good originals. I've always wanted those but I may have to settle for reprints. Reprint postcards maybe even!

Yes, mine are originals.  The good thing about the ones I bought is that there are no wrinkles in them.  They were shipped in a tube and sloppily rolled up.  I guess they're not worth as much as unmounted prints but they sure look better than the ones I had.

That issue of LOOK sure was an attention-grabber...

I think some people pulling that out of their mailboxes in 1968 would have laughed if someone told them to hang on to it. I'm glad that wasn't everyone.

Right, Kelley.  My father had a subscription for LOOK for his waiting room.  He came home one evening with that issue that had just come in the mail and asked me if I wanted it.

YES!
