WOW - that's awesome!  I have been looking for this one.  I saw one on ebay for $350 and that was way too much.

I offered the guy on EBAY $275.00.  He accepted my offer.  Otherwise these are nowhere to be found.  Why so rare?

So too From All Over the World. I've been looking for years and it hardly ever comes up. I'd love to complete my picture sleeve collection but this is serious money!!!

This really is a great sleeve and has always been a favorite. I absolutely love the font they used on both "Jan & Dean" and "Jan Berry." I wish I knew what it was and if it was available. The ampersand is absolutely beautiful and I really love the curly-q on the "J"s and the tail on the "y."  The art-deco lettering of "The Universal Coward" is pretty sharp too.

(Sorry, I'm a design geek! This kind of stuff excites me. LOL!)

Actorman  Try a sign shop . You know the ones that put wraps on Vans and trucks .
They have a lot of different fonts in all sizes.

Yes ...i also love this sleeve.   Man!, you paid out big for this. 

And I love ALL the shots from this time ...including the one I use for my name on here ...and on "Folk n Roll" and "Filet of Soul" and back of "Save For a Rainy Day"

As you described the detail of your "likes" in it, Actorman, it reminded me of Jan and the ampersand --

At the autograph table, after concerts, Jan would sometimes add the & ... for Dean to sign later ...he would try to remember what you call that.  He'd close his eyes and think
