I dont do this to be a nice guy, I do it because it simplifies things for me and saves time. Ive included a photo of this ticket next to a dollar bill for perspective. This is one of the biggest tickets Ive ever seen in rock n roll, measuring 3 inches from top to bottom, and from left to right it measures about 6 inches at its longest point. In other words, this ticket stub measures a QUARTER-FOOT BY A HALF-FOOT. Now thats a ticket as big as Elviss legend!
I also think its funny how this ticket resembles the state of Tennessee when its flipped over and turned around Tennessee being home to Memphis, of course. I was able to find several photos of Elviss two-day stand at this theater, and theyre remarkable to behold. He was playing with his original trio still Scotty Moore, Bill Black and drummer D. I dont need to tell you that Elvis was on fire at the time of this show. Just three weeks prior, RCA had released his Dont Be Cruel / Hound Dog single, which obliterated the charts and took everyone in the music business aback.On the very weekend of these shows, Elvis had three singles in the Top 20 of. Magazines pop charts those two songs plus his previous single, I Want You, I Need You, I Love You. The two-sided hit (Cruel / Dog) would go on to achieve the #1 spot for. STARTING THIS LISTING AT A BUCK, no reserve, letting the marketplace (you) determine its value. I just prefer to let market forces push any item where it will, and not engage in wishful-thinking pricing. And yes, occasionally an item stiffs, too, and you (not me) get a bargain.
I DO NOT CLOSE AUCTIONS EARLY, so please dont ask. As for my credibility, I've had something on display in a music museum every single day since the fall of 1995, when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum opened in Cleveland with over 10 of my items on display, including three Beatles Liverpool concert posters.
Presently I have two Bob Dylan posters on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, TN. I have over 350 YouTube videos up where I discuss rare and collectible concert memorabilia. You can find them either through my Web sites blog or my YouTube channel, both named PosterCentral. I also worked for CBS Records in the 1970s after being a small-town disc jockey for a few years. Thank you for stopping by, and please let me know if youre aware of any rare concert posters for sale from the late 1960s back to the 1920s.
I love to collect vintage concert posters and pay the very BEST prices in the hobby. Whether its Bob Dylan or the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead or Janis Joplin, the Stones or Zeppelin, 50s founding fathers like Buddy Holly, Fats Domino and Elvis, or old-timers like Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald, Im totally into it. Likewise with the earliest & rarest psychedelic concert memorabilia from the Acid Tests, Tributes to Dr. Strange, Sparkle Plenty or Ming the Merciless, and Bill Grahams Mime Troupe benefits in late 65/early 66, rare stuff like that.I also love concert tickets and stubs from my favorite artists.
