A big thank you goes out to all our readers who found interest in this week’s cover story: Collecting Woodstock. Comments are pouring in about the spread and our excerpted price guide to collectibles relating to the iconic 1969 Woodstock concert weekend.
We debated here in the Antique Trader offices whether Woodstock as a collectible event was “too contemporary” to be covered by Antique Trader. When we learned most collectibles related to the original concert event were scarce and are commanding prices northwards of $2,000, we felt better about featuring it as our cover story for the Sept. 30 issue.
In honor of the interest AntiqueTrader.com visitors have shown, we’re making a free copy of our latest book “Woodstock Peace, Music & Memories” the prize for October’s Antique Trader Treasure Hunt Sweepstakes.
Authored by Brad Littleproud and Joanne Hague, the book is getting rave reviews and has been well received by collectors and Flower Children everywhere. “Woodstock Peace, Music & Memories” has more than 350 color and black and white photographs and a special section on Woodstock memorabilia with current values.
We will announce the winner in a Nov. 11 issue of Antique Trader. Until then, we’d love to hear your recollections of the event and whether you own a few Woodstock collectibles yourself. Send comments here.
