Sometime around mid afternoon (2:00 - 3:00) at TRPS, a binder with a near complete set of Bill Graham postcards disappeared from E-clectique Gallery's table during a busy period. If anyone knows anything or hears about these rare uncut pairs suddenly on the market, he would dearly like them back.

this is a shot of their booth in the corner of the hall later that afternoon.
It seems conceivable that some photos of their booth between 2-3pm are out there and could help figure out exactly when the binder disappeared if crowdsourced.

Yea, I was there when this happened. Really bad. Kris is such a nice guy. I told him I'd be keeping an eye out and all dealers have been notified what to do if approached and ask to buy the set. Police report was filed, as well.

Damn hippies.

Any security cameras in that place?

Sadly no. When the police came they actually asked why there were no security cameras and suggested just buying a cheap stick on next time.

That's a bummer. Hopefully they turn up.

Hello, Kris Mikkelson of E-clectique Gallery here. Thanks for the post! The book / binder was all double postcards most were mailers with a certain name on them. Can be identified by the name/mailing address! You can contact me for details. Thanks again, Kris

Thank you for posting this, electrachrome. I'm attaching a couple of images from around 3:45 in the afternoon.
