BERKELEY, Calif. – On Tuesday, December 1, PBA Galleries will host an auction with more than 450 lots of fine literature and ephemera, featuring scarce works from the counterculture and the Beat Generation, plus a large section of rock and psychedelic posters.

Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
DALLAS – The most iconic concert poster of all time is now the most expensive concert poster of all time. On April 16, during Heritage Auctions’ latest Music Memorabilia Signature® Auction, the stunning bright-yellow slab of cardboard promoting the Beatles’ August 23, 1966, concert at New York’s Shea Stadium sold for $275,000 to set a new auction record. That shatters the previous high-water mark of $150,000 shared by both the Shea Stadium poster (set in November) and another advertising Hank Williams’ two concerts scheduled for New Year’s Day 1953 at the Canton Memorial Auditorium in Ohio (established last May).
DALLAS – To collectors of vintage rock posters, KC Murphy’s assemblage, available April 16 at Heritage Auctions‘s Music Memorabilia Signature® Auction, features only the very best of the very best – 40 extraordinarily valuable, vaunted and crisp keepsakes from the Bindweed Press, near-mint memories pulled from a family friend’s famed printing presses when Murphy was just a little girl living in the wilds of Sonoma County. Her historic collection contains the totemic, valuable vestiges of a bygone Bay Area once ruled by the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane and their psychedelic brethren. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
