I dont do this to be a nice guy, I do it because it simplifies things for me and saves time. Listed here today is an original, genuine concert ticket stub for the Jimi Hendrix Experience (and Vanilla Fudge) at the Swing Auditorium in San Bernardino, California. The date was Thursday, September 5, 1968, just two weeks before the release of Jimis landmark single All Along the Watchtower, and one month before the release of his classic Electric Ladyland album. The stub is faded from exposure to light over the years, probably when it was in a frame. The back retains its bright-orange color.
The hue can appear different under different circumstances, so Ive included two photos of it. The first was taken in the bright sunlight, the second one in the shade. It also has several surface creases and a bent upper-right corner.
My pictures tell the story. It measures 2 and 1/8 inches tall by 4 and ½ inches wide at its longest point. The good news, of course, is the presence of all the great wording that makes big ticket stubs so cool, including The Jimi Hendrix Experience in the same wild lettering that was used for Jimis debut album the year before, Are You Experienced. Its interesting how Scenic Sounds called this a Dance Concert those were becoming a thing of the past, and surely the front of the stage was packed with people simply watching the charismatic guitar god in rapt attention, not dancing (except maybe in the back of the hall).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.Thanks and have a great day!
