High Noon: Collectibles

Jimi Hendrix, John Mayall and Albert King played a series of concerts at San Francisco’s storied Fillmore and Winterland music venues in February 1968; the poster advertising the shows featured a bloodshot eyeball flying through a ring of fire.

“It was totally cool and badass and your-mother-would-shriek-if-she-saw-it kind of thing,” said Ben Marks, a collector of vintage rock posters.

If you were lucky enough to be there, you have the memories. If you nabbed a poster, you may have much more.

A first printing of the poster in mint condition might sell for $10,000, said Marks, senior editor at Collectors Weekly, a San Francisco-based website that’s part auction, part social media and part news site. Full story. Addy Hatch, SR
