Welcome to page 2 of my online sale. There are 3 pages: The first page is SRV, second page is music memorabilia, and third 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. 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, let me know you want to be on the mailing list.

Happy shopping!

GUITARS & EQUIPMENT
Eric Johnson's Echoplex! Anyone who has studied Eric Johnson's guitar playing knows how important echo is to many of his best songs. This is a circa 1969 EP3 Echoplex with foot switch owned and used by Eric Johnson until 1997 when I purchased it from an Austin guitar dealer who did a lot of equipment buying and selling for Eric. In 1999 I personally had Eric sign the inside of the lid. He very rarely signs equipment of any kind, but this having been his personal Echoplex, he made an exception.   $1995
     Matching set of Gretsch Billy-Bo Jupiter Thunderbird guitar and bass with custom cases. Near mint. Awesome tones; grooviest guitar designed! The Billy-Bo's were designed after the guitar Bo Diddley gave to Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. There are countless photos of Billy playing Billy-Bo guitars on stage for the past several years. Stunningly cool and beautiful. MSRP on the bass is $3600; guitar $3825 for the guitar (specs on the guitar below). That's $7425 worth of guitars for only $4200.

AUTOGRAPHS
  Paul McCartney, George Harrison - see below in the Beatles section. below
Jimi Hendrix. Most innovative electric guitar player of all time! It does not seem possible that anyone will ever take such a giant innovative leap forward again. The number one legend of all rock and roll guitar legends. Forever only 27 years of age, Jimi didn't live long enough to sign a ton of autographs - really only 4 years of celebrity, and only three of that in the USA. Here he has signed the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine issue #7 featuring a large photo of Henrix in performance. He has signed "To Lee, Stay Groovy, Jimi Hendrix." The magazine itself is worth several hundred dollars unsigned. (It includes an article about Albert King too.) Recently appraised at $5000 to $8000. $7500
PHOTO Albert Collins ! An 8 x10 photo signed in red marker "Albert Collins, Best wishes." Also signed by the bass player in the photo. FRAMED with a 12 x 17 color photo of Albert on stage, taken by a friend of mine in Denmark. Awesome. $500
Eric Johnson. Some say the best tone of any electric guitar player ever. Certainly among the most technically proficient you will ever hear. He signed an Ah Via Musicom die-cut promo poster at a record store appearance. Damage to bottom that doesn't affect signature. $50
David Lindley - Autographed poster. Among my all-time favorite guitar players. Most well known for his stint in Jackson Browne's band. An eclectic player, he can play anything with strings. The King of Polyester! Only reason I am selling this is that I have two. It's so nice I bought it twice! 11x17 $50
1995 late great Smokin' Joe Kubek signed cardboard boxing style poster. One of Stevie Ray Vaughan's friends, and among the best blues guitarists to come out of Dallas. Approx 18x22 $25
THE BEATLES !!
Paul McCartney & band autograph. A concert program from Paul's 1989-90 tour signed on the front cover by Paul and the band, including Linda McCartney. A complete set of Beatles autographs now goes for $6000 and (way) up. Here's a chance to get a great Paul signature if you can't afford the Beatles. Signed in blue: "Cheers, Paul McCartney," "Love, Linda McCartney," "All the Best, Wix" (Paul Wickens), "All the Best, Ham" (Hamish Stewart), "Keep Singin', Chris Whitten" and "Robbie McIntosh." Obtained in Lexington on Feb. 11, 1990. VIP pass adhered to cover, also comes with the Lexington ticket stub. $2500
Abbey Road street sign - Genuine metal & enamel street sign from the most famous street in the world - Abbey Road in London! These signs were finally retired by the City of Westminster because of the constant expense of replacing stolen and defaced signs. One sold for $6000 in 2010 and another sold for $8600 in September 2009. This one is worth considerably more because I actually have a photo of this sign when it was still in place on Abbey Road, and an envelope which contained the photo postmarked from St. John's Wood (the neighborhood where Abbey Road is) on November 22, 1976. What happened was someone took the picture and then took the sign back in 1976! This is the ONLY Abbey Road sign that I know of with a photograph of the sign before it was removed from the street. The only reason I am offering this sign for sale is that I have a similar sign with Beatles graffiti all over it.It's so nice I bought it twice! UPDATE: My other sign sold at auction for $16,700.  18x32.  $15,000
Original 1968 Yellow Submarine lunchbox and thermos. Appeals to lunch box collectors and Beatles collectors, these have always been very collectible. $400
 Avedon portraits (4) framed. These have been the centerpiece over my fireplace for many years. The portraits are not original Avedons from the 60s, but they are still beautiful. Each is 23x28. $950 set of 4 framed

PHOTO 2
Yellow Submarine movie poster (reprint). Sold unframed. 27x41 $25
 Pete Best autograph and chip from Cavern Club brink. Pete was the drummer before Ringo, photo shows the band with Pete in the Cavern Club, the most famous Beatles club in the world.  $250
The Beatles Anthology VHS box set. Like new $15
The Beatles CDs - complete set of the 3" CD singles released in 1988-89 and quickly discontinued, including the rare "Strawberry Fields" disc. All are still sealed in long boxes, never opened!! Appraised value $425 $300
Lennon and McCartney posters. One is a promo for Lennon Legend in 1998, the other for an exhibition of Linda McCartney's photos in 1991. I got the Macca poster during a visit to his office in Soho, London.  Each are 20x30 so they make a nice set. $40
set of 2
Life magazine April 24, 1970, with article about the breakup of the Beatles. Great piece of history. $20

HANDBILLS and TICKETS (unframed unless noted otherwise)
1964 Muddy Waters, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGee, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mississippi John Hurt, Rev. Gary Davis, Otis Spann handbill. Wow. What a lineup! This is from Birmingham England and is a testament to the events which created the British blues boom for Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and others. This is the earliest Muddy Waters handbill I've seen. This came from a lot I purchased at auction from a British collector who attended the early 60s blues shows in England. If the handbill isn't enough, I will include a ticket stub to the show! I have four handbills available (approx 6.75 x 9.5), but only one ticket stub. $200

1964 festival ticket. Holy Cow! How about a February 1964 ticket to the first R&B Festival in Birmingham England featuring Sonny Boy Williamson and The Yardbirds with ERIC CLAPTON on guitar, Spencer Davis' quartet featuring Steve Winwood, and Long John Baldry with Rod Stewart in a band called The Liverpool Roadrunners. I'll say it again - Holy Cow! This is the birth of the British blues. This may be one of Clapton's first 100 shows ever (it's # 74 on the most complete list I can find online). Some of the songs from this festival have been released on records. If you're a Clapton fan, you'll not see many items earlier than this! It's still in the same condition I received it in, but the wrinkles could be pressed out of it. It's about 3" square. $250
1970 Led Zeppelin ! The band had only been together two years at the time of this concert. Concert handbill from the 6th show on the summer North American tour of 1970. This is an original handbill (approx 8.5 x 11.5) which was found among many handbills in the warehouse of the company that printed them. I was there when the stash was bought by a memorabilia dealer back in the 90s. This is my only Led Zeppelin memorabilia from the early days of the band when Bonham was still with us. $200
  1993, Oct 20 Arc Angels full ticket to Austin concert during last week of shows before the group originally disbanded. $10
miscellaneous old concert tickets for Van Halen, ZZ Top, Modern English, U.K. and Sheryl Crow. (Plant/Page ticket sold) $5 ea.
LOS LONELY BOYS
The Collection. SIXTEEN early Los Lonely Boys items including autographs, guitar pick, posters and rare promotional items. This is some of the rarest and earliest memorabilia associated with the band. (1) Autographs of the band obtained by me in person in 2003. The signatures are on the inside paper CD insert behind the plastic tray, which means they are protected from handling. You could take the paper insert out and frame it if you choose. The CD is a 2003 limited edition Real Emotions EP which includes a live version of "Cottonfields and Crossroads" recorded at Antone's in Austin. This CD was before they got their deal with Epic and is on the OR lable. Sorry about the glare in this photo, but see the one below that is similar. (2) Incredibly rare 1998 LLB promo fly swatter shaped like a guitar! From the Atlantis Music Conference five years before they got a major record deal. Has to be the weirdest promo item I have. (3) Henry Garza guitar pick. Henry uses the 346 style pick, and I had these made for him as a Christmas present in 2003. There were only 144 made with his name on one side and the silhouette of the band on the other. (4) A still-sealed 2003 advance CD of their first CD on the OR lable plus a bonus track "The Answer" that did not make the final cut on the released CD. (5-6) Austin City Limits program and complete ticket from September 2003. (7-9) Three early posters: La Zona Rose, Austin Oct 2003; Fillmore, San Francisco May 2004; Stubbs BBQ, Austin July 2004 with burned edges.
