Further proof Vintage Concert Posters represent most lucrative collectibles opportunity in the world today!
Vintage movie posters made national headlines in November, 2017 when a 1931 Dracula poster realized $525,800 at auction - the highest price ever paid at public auction for a movie poster. Five other movie posters realized over $200,000 and over a dozen realized over $100,000 in 2017.
These record breaking prices serve as further proof that vintage concert posters represent the most lucrative collectibles opportunity in the world today.
Experienced collectors understand you can still acquire the rarest, the most beautiful, and most historically important concert posters --in Museum Quality condition -- for literally pennies on the dollar compared to other collectibles.
In a world where the most desirable comic books, baseball cards, coins and stamps routinely realize over $ 1 million each, you can still collect the very best concert posters for $5,000 and up. And miraculously, there are still many dozens of concert posters that are 45+ years old, featuring famous bands and venues, in pristine condition, that can be purchased for well under $1,000!
Clearly, our market represents a powder keg that is in the process of exploding. Third party authentication and grading, the publication of a major collector's guide, the recent 50th birthday of the collectible and major media and museum exposure --all documented in previous blog posts here-- have allowed vintage concert posters to finally take center stage. That's why PAE gained over 400 new clients in 2017 alone!
It's not often in life that you get exposed to true ground floor opportunities before the rest of the world finds out. How lucky we all are to have discovered these rare and beautiful pieces of history that can still be acquired in Museum Quality condition for a tiny fraction of what many collectors expect them to be worth in the future. Collecting vintage concert posters is fun, exciting and affordable!
