The flier has a great set of graphics highlighted by a series of classic 1950's rock silhouettes near the bottom. "The text also adds a little something reading "Seattle's Sensational Nirvana" Mussell states adding "It's my goal to preserve a section of rock history and this poster is a cruicial piece of the puzzle I'm very eager to obtain an example for my collection." If you have this poster or other examples of Nirvana concert posters and fliers contact Mussell at 515.707.7250 or by email at email@example.com.

Nirvana poster collector Soctt Mussell is offering a cash reward of $500 for an original first printing of this rare c.1990 Nirvana concert poster. Known as a 'tour blank' because of the clear space at the bottom that was intended for a promoter to write in the venue location by hand. "These were used in the early days before they left the SubPop label" Mussell says adding "I'm very motivated to obtain one wether it's blank or has the added venue information, I'm a buyer in any condition." The poster was used on the Bleach tour and examples are know from New York City, Ann Arbor, MI and Hollywood, CA. "They must have been distributed to areas where there was not only going to be a concert but a known base of fan support" Mussell notes adding "I think it's one of the top graphics produced for the band and represents a key stepping stone in the timeline of their development." Mussell is a collector of rock 'n roll concert posters with a special emphasis on items spanning Nirvanas career. "I think of this as historical preservation. It's important to preserve these early artifacts and I'm offering $500- on condition- to be the person who does that." Contact Mussell at 515.707.7250 or by email at email@example.com if you have an example of this poster or other Nirvana material.
Rock concert poster collector Scott Mussell is seeking this Nirvana poster advertising two gigs in Honolulu, HI at the legendary venue Pink's Garage. These shows occurred near the epicenter of the bands pop culture explosion at the end of a nearly month long tour with previous dates in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. "The grueling tour schedule combined with the bands meteoric rise had frontman Kurt Cobain worn out by the time the band made it to Hawaii" Mussell said. Two days after the final show Cobain would marry Courtney Love on a Hawaiian beach whilst wearing his pajamas. "I'm not 100% sure of the dimensions even- I've never seen one in person" Mussell states adding "I'm motivated to find one. If someone has one they'd part with they should contact me with details- I'm a very interested buyer."
Pink's Garage attracted many top acts from the era. In addition to the Nirvana poster Mussell is seeking other concert posters from the noted venue and the annual rock festival 'The Big Mele'. If you have material you would consider selling contact him at 515.707.7250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Democratic National Convention is not the only assemblage of politically minded individuals that will be gathering in Pennsylvania this year. The American Political Items Collectors (APIC) have selected the Keystone State’s capital city of Harrisburg for their 2016 national convention. The July 6-10 event will be headquartered at the Harrisburg Hilton, near many historical sites.
Attendees from among the club’s 1,600 members will have an event-packed agenda available to them, including buying and selling at a 200-table bourse and visiting numerous local points of interest, from Gettysburg Battlefield to the home of James Buchanan Jr., the fifteenth President of the United States. The focus throughout will be on Pennsylvania’s rich political history, and an all-out effort will be made to engage the public and showcase the fascinating hobby of political memorabilia collecting.
“On Saturday and Sunday, July 9th and 10th, we’ll do something we’ve never done before, and that’s open our doors to the public, free of charge. Even the parking will be free,” said convention co-chair Ted Hake, who founded the York, Pa., auction house Hake’s Americana, the event’s Keystone-Level sponsor. “We want to make this an educational experience for all ages. Guests can browse the sellers’ tables and view a wealth of rare political memorabilia spanning a 200-year timeline, with values from $5 to $50,000. There will also be every imaginable type of vintage pop culture collectible for sale, from comic character, sports and rock music to advertising and World War Two relics.” To encourage youngsters to attend, every visitor under 16 will receive a free bag of political campaign buttons plus a special button created expressly for the event.
APIC is one of America’s most respected collector clubs, with a history that goes back to 1945. Its current membership includes three US Presidents, many politicians and campaign staffers; broadcast journalists, and collectors from a broad spectrum of professions.
“Because this is an election year and the world will be watching Pennsylvania during the month of July, we expect the excitement level to be off the charts at our national convention,” said Hake. “Don’t be surprised if you see a very convincing ‘General Douglas MacArthur’ walking around the convention floor on Saturday. We’ve arranged for some incredible impersonators to attend the convention, the ‘general’ being one of them. We also have ‘Dean Martin’ and ‘Frank Sinatra’ lined up to entertain at the members banquet. Electing a new president may be a serious endeavor, but there’s nothing serious about the tone of our conventions. They’re all about camaraderie and a common interest in history and collecting.”
The APIC welcomes new members. For an annual basic membership charge of $38 ($15 under 12), new enrollees can opt to take part in the club’s member-only convention activities, including a banquet, trivia competition, early buying, and field trips (some fees apply).
