Welcome to Page 1 of my online sale. There are 4 pages: The first page is SRV, second page is SRV posters, third page is music memorabilia, and fourth page is Hollywood, Sports, Automotive, Antiques and other items.  There is a link to the next page at the bottom of each page.

Click on the camera to see each item. The photos are low resolution but should be a sufficient guide. Most of the posters were shrink-wrapped on acid-free board at the time I took the photos, and they show a lot of glare and reflection, so in most cases the posters are much more attractive than shown in these small photos. Poster sizes are approximate.

Email me (1) what you want and (2) your state or country. I will email you back with a total price (including postage any applicable fees and sales tax; if you want insurance you need to ask for it).  Then you can go to Paypal.com and pay with your credit card to my email address. If you are serious about buying, I'm happy to answer any questions you have. Please don't ask "is it still available" unless you are prepared to buy if it is available. I do not charge "handling" or otherwise try to net more than the price listed. I will add my best estimate of actual shipping charges, sales tax only if you live in Texas, plus the internet transaction fee that I am charged.

The persons on the mailing list often receive advance notice when there is a substantial increase in items for sale.  If you did not get advance notice it means you aren't on the mailing list because you either never signed up, your email changed, you didn't check your email or you never ordered the new book. If you want notice next time, get on the mailing list.

Happy shopping!

The Really Cool Stuff
1987 Live Alive Tour Jacket - The most elaborately embroidered of all the tour jackets (and the only "hoodie"), with a large image of Stevie wearing the Native American headdress on the back. This is nice warm jacket with a liner, zip front plus snaps and a hood that can be left inside or pulled out. Size M, but I think they run large.  One dark spot on one elbow, cuffs and bottom elastic a little bit "fuzzy" which could be rememdied easily.  $750
The ULTIMATE SRV Guitar Collection - This is my personal collection of replicas of Stevie's most famous guitars. These guitars are all in near mint condition and have the goodies that originally came with them. If you want to see photos of the contents of each case, let me know.

1. The Fender Custom Shop "Number One."  Luthier John Cruz confirmed for me that this is #12 of only 100 Custom Shop guitars. According to a dealer at a recent Dallas Guitar Show, the price on these is $50,000-$55,000 if you can find one. Custom Shop guitars like this are investment grade. Flight case, case candy and original box.

2. The Fender Custom Shop "Lenny." Only 185 of these guitars were released for the U.S. market in 2007 by the famous Custom Shop. Stevie's "Lenny" sold for $623,000. Flight case, case candy and original box. These Custom Shop guitars originally sold for $17,000.

3. Charley's Guitar Shop "Lipstick Special." Number 1 of only 23 made by Charley's Guitar Shop and Rene Martinez in January 2003. That's right - this is #1, the very first one. Other owners include Carlos Santana, John Mayer and other celebrities. Irridescent blue/white "flip-flop" paint, Charley's logo, hula girl on back, imitation snakeskin case. Certificate signed by Rene Martinez, Stevie's guitar tech. Best tone of any guitar I own. This guitar has been played on stage by two great Texas guitarists, Alan Haynes and Jim Suhler.

4. Jim Hamilton "Hamiltone" a.ka. "Main." The most beautiful guitar I have ever owned. Sweet tone. This is  number 01, made in 2004 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Stevie receiving his from Jim Hamilton in April 1984. There are photos of this guitar being made in Jim's studio elsewhere on this website. Signed on the back of the headstock by Jim Hamilton. This is NOT one of the Asian knockoffs being sold by someone other than Jim Hamilton under the Hamiltone name. This is the real deal made by the same man who made Stevie's guitar.

PURCHASE OPTIONS:
Number One and Lenny: $62,000
Lenny, Charley and Hamiltone: $37,000
Charley and Lenny: $27,000
Hamiltone and Lenny: $27,000
All four guitars: $80,000

GUITAR PICKS

 

There are 17 different custom picks with Stevie's name printed on the pick. Easily the most common pick Stevie used was a plain ol' Fender medium. The only guitar picks I can confidently say were actually used by Stevie Ray Vaughan to make some of the most amazing music in history are those I have obtained directly from his roadies or his former fiance. 

Picks showing wear from use by Stevie:
- Fender medium, red (top row, middle). He used these throughout his career, but particularly in the early years. SOLD
- Fender medium, red. Similar to above. USED. $SOLD
- Fender medium, light blue. USED. $SOLD

Custom picks (no wear apparent): SOLD OUT! I am not planning to "stock" picks anymore, but I may be able to find an unused or used pick or two from my sources. They will range from $650 or $1250 respectively. Let me know if you are ready to buy and I'll see what I can find.
- Yellow "Stevie Ray" - his second pick with his name on it. ca. 1983. $SOLD
- Purple Delrin "Stevie Ray Vaughan". $SOLD
- White "Stevie Ray Vaughan" on two lines. $SOLD
- Red "Stevie Ray Vaughan" on two lines in gold letters $SOLD
- Multicolor "Stevie Ray Vaughan" in gold letters. $SOLD 
- Multicolor "Stevie Ray Vaughan" in gold letters. $650 (similar to one shown) SOLD

- Multicolor "Stevie Ray Vaughan" in gold letters. $650 (second from left) SOLD
- Multicolor "Stevie Ray Vaughan" in highly contrasting white letters. $750 (fourth from left) SOLD

Other SRV picks 
One of Stevie's roadies recently discovered some guitar picks left over from touring with Stevie. These picks all date to the period 1983-1985 and are unused. They are from two of Stevie's favorite guitar shops - Ray Hennig's Heart of Texas Music in Austin, and Charley's Guitar Shop in Dallas. I think they are really cool because of where they are from and I added some of these to my Stevie pick collection because they are just as much from Stevie's pick supply as those with his name on them. There are also a few Fender medium picks from his supply. Not as expensive, but just as genuine. Because they do not have Stevie's name on them, we are offering them for ONLY $100 each, or a set of seven for $650. Described below: 

- Vintage "H.O.T. Music" pick from Ray Hennig's Heart of Texas Music in Austin, Texas! Ray's store is where Stevie got Number One in 1974, and where he would stop before shows to get picks, strings, etc. Available in red, white, blue, tortoise and black. State your top two color choices, and if we run out of your top choices we'll send you one of the others.

- Vintage Charley's Guitar Shop pick from Dallas, Texas. Charley Wirz was, of course, the man Stevie dedicated "Life Without You" to. Charley started the Dallas Guitar Show in 1978, and it continues on today. Stevie obtained several guitars from Charley, including the famous white guitar on the cover of Couldn't Stand the Weather. Picks available in yellow and white glow-in-the-dark. State your preference, but if we run out of glow-in-the-dark we'll send you a yellow one.

Tommy Shannon picks - VERY RARE, as Tommy only played a couple of songs with a pick ( I believe Tommy told me years ago that Voodoo Chile or Third Stone was the song he used a pick on mainly). Two styles: one is heavy felt, the other is gray nylon. $35 each.

AUTOGRAPHS
See also the signed album at the top of this page, and the autographs in the next section below on this page.
Alpine Valley Stars:  Fender Strat pickguard signed by all the stars at Stevie's last performance: Stevie Ray Vaughan signed "All the Best of Life!", Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy and Jimmie Vaughan. Put this on the guitar of your choice and it should immediately double the value. This item on consignment. I should buy it myself! $5000
Autographs - Wonderful set of signatures by the whole band: Stevie, Chris, Tommy and Reese. Signed in Cincinnati on June 24, 1990, just two months before Stevie passed. White paper signed clearly and legibly by all four band members in ball-point pens. Excellent for framing with anything - poster, photo, album cover, etc. Sets with all four band members are getting more difficult to find. $1500
  Autograph. Soul To Soul-era Stevie Ray Vaughan autograph on a 3.5" x 5.5" record store postcard, with photo of Stevie at the event. Stevie and the band, plus the T-Birds, attended the in-store appearance at Sam's Jams in Ferndale, Michigan, probably in February 1986. Signed "S.R.Vaughan c/s" in heavy black marker. See the FAQ for the explanation of "c/s". Rare to have a candid photo from the signing event. $750
Autograph - Texas Flood cassette J-card signed on the back "Monica, All the Love! S.R. Vaughan c/s." See the FAQ page for explanation of Stevie's "c/s" signature. This signature dates to 1985-1986. Creative framer could matt over Monica's name and you'll have a great piece. $750
Autograph - Soul to Soul cassette J-card signed on the back "Wayne, Stevie Ray Vaughan c/s." See the FAQ page for explanation of Stevie's "c/s" signature. Nice bold red pen signature. $750
Autograph - Paper signed "To Bobby. Best of All of Life! Stevie Ray Vaughan." Very cool inscription. $750
Autograph - 4x6 card signed "Stevie Ray Vaughan c/s". Frame with anything! $650

RECORDINGS
NEW!! Get the new SRV documentary DVD weeks before the public release in September.  CLICK HERE SOLD OUT
PHOTO A New Hi! Stevie's first record. This is the ultimate display item for Stevie's first record. These very rare records were issued with a folded poster with photos of each band on the record. 16-year-old Stevie Vaughan is pictured with the band Cast of Thousands. The poster is FRAMED. A sheet of plexiglas was placed over the poster, and the album cover and a copy of the credits listing Stevie's name is then floated in the frame so that the poster is not damaged in any way. The record is not in the frame, so you can still play it! The poster and frame are approx 24 x36. $1,200
  Selections From Play Hard & Floor It!  This was a limited DVD used as a premium for people joining public television in 2007. It is 24 minutes of video Stevie from Montruex, El Mocambo and Austin City Limits. The minimum pledge to get this DVD was $75. The only one I've seen on eBay went for about that much. I have two available $50
  Best Buy promo only CD single with "Sting's Swing" outtake from 1984, and "Drivin' South" live in Houston in 1983. The CD was released in 2000 with the early copies of the SRV box set, and these songs were exclusive to this promo disc and not included in the box set. These have sold for up to $150. One left. $75
Miscellaneous duplicate CDs from my collection.
  • Soul to Soul - $5
  • Live Alive - $5
  • The Sky is Crying - front booklet but no back tray insert. $4
  Looking for the "BONUS CD" of the earliest known recordings of Stevie Ray Vaughan from 1969-1970? They are available only with purchase of the book. See below for details.  
OTHER
  Ticket - Stevie's last show at Alpine Valley, August 26, 1990. This is the "real" ticket stub with Eric Clapton's name, not the common blue ticket voucher. I have not had many of these ticket stubs over the years, maybe three or four. Two folds, but otherwise excellent condition. $250
Pins -  1990s cloisonne (metal and enamel) pin made by the Estate of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Gold and white guitar with "Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble." These are the nicest SRV pins ever made. They were originally made in small quantity at the time Couldn't Stand the Weather was released in 1984. The Estate of SRV made another relatively small quantity around 1994. I recently bought out what I believe to be the last horde of these 15-year-old pins. One sold on eBay recently for $71, and the originals from 1984 (if you can find one) sell for up to $100. These pins are identical except for the texture on the back of the pin. It has a locking clasp on the back like jewelry, not one of those detachable round clasps you squeeze. This is not a cheap pin-back button but a high quality cloisonne pin. They are 1.5" long.

SPECIAL COLLECTION - RESEARCH ARCHIVE - HUNDREDS OF PHOTOS + INTERVIEWS, ETC.
My personal collection of SRV magazines, newspaper articles and clippings. I collected these items from all over the world for 20 years. This is almost certainly the most complete SRV research library in the world, used to create the newlsetters, website and books I have published. The standard-size magazines and clippings are organized into approximately 16 large notebooks, plus there are several boxes of newspapers and oversized magazines. For the items with Stevie on the cover, these are the actual magazines pictured in the books I have done. Please note that it is probably going to be late 2011 before I will be ready to transfer this collection to you, as I am still using them for another project. There are approximately 335 magazines dating from 1974 to the present, including approximately 20 that came with CDs, and approximately 140 have Stevie on the cover! There are also approximately 40 newspapers, including 10 reporting Stevie's death and funeral. If that isn't enough, there are also three 2-inch notebooks of clippings and photocopies of articles from around the world.  $3500

BELOW LISTED ARE MANY ITEMS FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION, ACQUIRED OVER THE PAST 20 YEARS. I am in the process of adding photos and additional items,
