edition of only 2,448 signed and numbered prints commemorating the 70th
anniversary of Route 66. Includes Certificate of Authenticity and an 18

memorabilia item. "66 and More..." is truly a historical document
commemorating the 70th Anniversary of Route 66. From 1995 to 1997, the
original artwork piece was hand carried into every post office that still
existed along the route. Each postmark was inked directly onto the artwork
in its own city. An effort, that all diehard Route 66 enthusiasts can
appreciate, and one that could never be duplicated again.
