I saw this mentioned over on RollingStone about the auction house Christie’s having a large Rock & Memorabilia sale on November 30th. It’s a very cool collection and if you have an extra 2-3k you have a shot at this Hendrix poster and other insanely priced rock artifacts. Online bidding is available.

Sale highlights include a rare notebook of lyrics from the influential and acclaimed singer and songwriters, Hank Williams, and an exciting collection of vintage rock t-shirts from the late 1960s to late 1970s representing bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Who, Queen, David Bowie, The Beatles and others.

Additional Highlights

A collection of 20 lots of posters and gold records from the Estate of Ian Copeland, the agent and promoter who represented The Police, Morissey, R.E.M. Simple Minds, The Smiths, and responsible for launching the New Wave movement in the United States (estimates start at $300). The majority of the posters offered once resided in Copeland’s Beverly Hills cafe, the Backstage Door. The Estate of Judy Sims, editor of the popular 1960s magazine, Teen Set, consists of photographs of the psychedelic era bands by some of the most talented photographers of the days such as Annie Leibowitz, Jim Marshall, Ed Caraeff and many others (estimates start at $200).
