Several years back I went to an estate sale in Maine. I ran across a bunch of postcards that I thought would be great to have to send to people. Everything else in the pile was 10 cents each, so I was surprised when I went to pay and they said the price was $1 each. Thankfully I bought them and never mailed them. Turns out they are very collectible. Back in 1967-8, Family Dog Productions organized concerts at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco. The posters and postcards they produced are works of art, each and every one.
This is one example of a more psychedelic one. See the circle that just looks like odd shaped design? Well, it's actually the words. You have to be high to see it easily I think. If you can see it easily without drugs, well, you should go back in time and live in the 60's. To help you, the top set of words in pink is "Quicksilver Messenger Service."
I forgot to upload what the back looks like. I will do that tonight perhaps.
