    Hi. in the story above regarding the summer of love 40th anniversary concert at speedway meadows it claims 26 posters were made for the festival. does anyone know if its meant that 26 posters only were made? were there any more than one set of 26 made or were there others? I ask because back in 2007 I won the exact set above in a radio contest in sacramento and the set was the grand prize plus i got a free backstage pass to see all the old stars and hang out. well, i didn’t get to go and i still have my original 2007 set of 26 still in the shrink wrapper the set came in. i still have the backstage pass also. any idea about worth.?

    Best regards, Ben……
