Page 2, panel 1
In a comic book within this comic book, Booster Gold and Harley Quinn fall through time on their way to revisit (and prevent) the original Crisis on Infinite Earths. Booster's presence here is never fully explained. Presumably he was included simply to give Harley a means to travel through time.
Page 3, panel 2
Because of Harley's impatience, they accidentally end up at Martian Manhunter's funeral during Final Crisis. (This is actually the third time we've seen Booster Gold at the Manhunter's funeral, which also appeared in Final Crisis: Requiem.) This art was created by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund. "Present" Booster Gold has a high collar, while "Past" Booster Gold has no collar.

Next, Booster and Harley end up in Alexander Luthor's pocket dimension prior to the events of Infinite Crisis. This art was created by Aaron Lopestri and Matt Ryan. Booster Gold appears sans collar. Did Harley bring the wrong Booster into the past?
Page 17, panel 2
Booster and Harley finally reach their goal, the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths. (Note that the Crisis takes place before Booster Gold was introduced to the DC Universe.) This art was created by Tom Derenick and Trevor Scott. Booster once again wears his (period appropriate) high-collar.
Page 17, panel 4
Harley's plan is to stop Dr. Light from defeating the Anti-Monitor, thus causing Crisis comic book sales to plummet therefore preventing future event books that will dominate publishing cycles for decades to come.
