Julien’s brings the star power with Music Icons event Feb. 27

Dolly Parton 1970s stage- and album cover-worn ensemble, estimated at $20,000-$40,000 at Julien's.

GARDENA, Calif. — Julien’s Music Icons sale, scheduled for Tuesday, February 27, presents 145 lots from the biggest names in music. The sale has added emphasis on women performers as well. The complete catalog is now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

The Beatles played their final live concert in the United States on August 29, 1966 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. The ‘Stick was the home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team, and assistant clubhouse manager Mike Murphy was on duty for the music event. He managed to get the band to sign a Spaulding baseball and immediately gave it to his sister, who turned around and sold it to a collector, who consigned it to the sale after 50 years of ownership. The Ringo signature has been professionally restored, but the remaining autographs are all original. As the top lot in the sale, the baseball is estimated at $50,000-$70,000.

A very 1970s ensemble custom-designed for Dolly Parton is another auction highlight. The country superstar was on her way up in 1974 when she wore her jade green polyester top and bellbottoms for the Country Gold show in Arlington, Texas. She so loved the outfit that she donned it for the cover of her In the Beginning LP, released in 1978. The lot includes a copy of the album, and is estimated at $20,000-$40,000.

Taylor Swift was already a household name in 2014 when she was profiled in a photo shoot in Glamour magazine. Three props from that shoot are included in the Julien’s auction, and each is accompanied with a photo-matched image from the piece. First up is a Polaroid SX-70 Land camera ($400-$600) from a shot where Swift looks over a collection of Polaroid prints; next is an old travel trunk ($1,000-$2,000); and finally there’s a Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite guitar ($8,000-$12,000) seen being strummed by the pop star.

Another LP-cover wardrobe item is a Julien’s highlight. Johnny Cash wore this jacket, estimated at $10,000-$20,000, for the cover shoot for 1973’s CBS release Country & Western Superstar. And he presented his office Bently acoustic guitar, now estimated at $20,000-$30,000, to Johnny Cash Museum founder Bill Miller.

NEW YORK — From the screen prints of Andy Warhol in the 1960s to the figurative art of Keith Haring in the 1990s, the world of Pop Art continues to evolve and grow with a new generation of talent worldwide. Inspired by the elusive British artist Banksy, many have taken to the streets to distribute their art before moving inevitably to galleries and collectors.

On Tuesday, November 14, Jasper52 presents Printed Pop Culture: Art that Defines an Era, a 98-lot sale of prints from New York City-based anonymous street artist turned art entrepreneur Death NYC. Her fanciful collages of contemporary and vintage pop art iconography has made collecting her signed and authenticated prints a must-have for savvy collectors today. Interestingly, her name is an acronym for “Don’t Easily Abandon The Hope.”

From a newly released limited edition of 100 is a framed print of Pokemon Charlie Brown, combining Charles Schulz’s iconic character with a video game background. Signed and authenticated, it is estimated at $200-$250.

Also from a limited edition release of 100 signed and authenticated examples is Taylor Swift Murakami, combining the red-hot pop songstress with Hermes-branded balloons and the classic Murakami background. It, too, is estimated at $200-$250.

Inspired by Banksy, K9 is another collage featuring photographic and video game-inspired elements. From a 100-piece signed and authenticated release, K9 is estimated at $200-$250.

NEW YORK — It’s no secret that music superstar Taylor Swift has a passion for antiquing. Growing up in Berks County, Pennsylvania, before moving to a Nashville suburb at age 14 to pursue music, she was surrounded by antiques. Anyone familiar with the area knows it’s the unofficial antiques capital of Pennsylvania. The region is packed with antique shops, auctions, and shows, offering an endless supply of vintage goods dating back to the Keystone State’s colonial days.
