Music memorabilia has a significant history to offer its fans, historians, and collectors. The upcoming Heritage auction presents a selection of vintage posters, musical instruments, and autographs. Highlighted is a Grateful Dead “Skeleton & Roses” concert poster from 1966. Creators Stanley Mouse & Alton Kelley found the inspiration for the poster in a 1913 book entitled The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. An image of a skeleton assembling a wreath of roses caught the designers’ attention, resulting in this popular poster.
An available Beatles poster advertising their performance in New York City’s Shea Stadium was also produced in 1966. Considered a rare advertisement promoting one of the group’s last performances as a band, it is among the highest estimated lots of this auction. The sale will also offer a personalized guitar owned by Elvis Presley and the Indian motorcycle used in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
