If someone have those in some friendly format, I would love it


#3

Where would a Summer of Love occur today?
Surley San Fran is too expensive these days.


#4

Looks like these were inspired by upside-down 1972 Topps baseball cards:


#5

anyone know if these will be available for purchase? i’d love a Ginsberg one, and some others : (


#6

Richard Brautigan? Would swap him or Beefheart* for Reagan. Any takers?

*TIL this is when Safe as Milk was recorded :slight_smile:


#7

Nice observation!


#8

I want to buy the whole collection.


#9

Come on, BoingBoing store… don’t let me down!


#10

So where is card #13? You have 12 and do Janis twice. Seems it would have been easy to show the whole collection.


#11

My bad! There are only 12 posters… Reverend Cecil Williams, Janice Mirikitani are combined on one.


#12

… and there ain’t much lovin’ in those property battles. Lots of SF people are basically appalled at the loss of their paradise. Don’t blame them.


#13

I don’t, believe me.

I know what it’s like to be priced out of a neighborhood you love.


#14

As a Glide member, would love to get the Janice/Cecil one.


#15

I have 50 Ronald Reagans I’ll trade for a Tim Leary.


#16

I recently took my 7-year-old son to see the “Summer of Love” retrospective at the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. When I explained that his maternal grandmother had been one of the people into that scene he reacted with surprise: “you mean we’re part hippie??”

Between two white cotton sheets, flowers in your hair, sweating and grinding out blissful love in unison with your wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend. Boyfriend w boyfriend, girlfriend w girlfriend; and at least two puppies curled up in PEACE on your floorboards.
