Frank's autograph

Hey folks, just out of curiosity: how many of you happens to be the proud owner of one of Frank Mertens's rare autographs? I have one, and it comes with a silly story:

Back in the nineties i chased around the flea markets to find all the 7" and 12" singles and found this one. Since I thought the sleeve was in a horrible condition, all smeared with markers obviously by that child selling it, I haggled the price down to 5 Swedish crowns (about 50 euro cents).

It wasn't until weeks later, when I looked at it closely, that I discovered what an incredible bargain I had made! (OMG)

Lucky you... so it turns out the silver marks were Marian's, including his "Love & Greenpeace" dedication :)

Yeah, and as it happens, that was around the time when I had joined Greenpeace as an activist, which makes this item even more dear to me.
