    Rolling Stones Street Fighting Man Picture Sleeve Production Art Materials (London, 1968). The picture sleeve for the American release of the Stones' "Street Fighting Man," London 45-909, is considered to be the one of rarest Rolling Stones items. It was originally released in August 1968, right before the disastrous Democratic National Convention in Chicago, and featured a photo of police in riot gear pounding a few young heads. It was quickly withdrawn, and today, a NM copy might set you back $10,000 or so. Here are some very rare production materials originally used in printing that sleeve: two one-color negatives, one consisting of type, the other of the infamous police photo; and a piece of blue-line paper, used to check the type from the first negative. The negatives are in Very Good condition; the type negative is heavily marked with opaque red, to fill in hairlines and specks. The blueline is in Good condition, with a 4.25" tear at the top.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
