While it's no secret that vintage concert posters are our bread and butter here at PAE, we are pleased to offer a wide selection of modern concert posters in our current February Mega Auction! These items were all produced after 1990, with many designed as merchandise to be purchased at shows rather than as advertisements. Therefore, they were never posted the way that most vintage posters were. However, many are signed and numbered limited edition screen prints that disappear in seconds when offered directly to collectors by artists. These are attractive and valuable pieces of art that should not be overlooked!
