Through this blog we try to impart advice that has been hard earned through over 50 years of combined experience wheeling and dealing in the collectibles markets.
There are certain "rules to live by" that are necessary for success no matter what collectible one is addressing. Today I'd like to share another one of these "golden rules" with you. There is one number in collectibles that is instantly more sought after and valuable than any other number and that is the number ONE. ONE as in FIRST!! The first corvette, the first Batman comic, the first U.S. coin are all immediately recognizable due to the HISTORIC IMPORTANCE of the collectible in question. Anybody and everybody can understand THE FIRST, and therefore THE FIRST of everything has an intrinsic desirability to people inside AND outside a collectible market.
So how does this pertain to Classic 1960's Psychedelic Rock Concert Posters? Well the BG1 and the FD1 and the first posters at any other venue have always enjoyed top demand. But so is the FIRST appearance of a given band at a venue, or THE FIRST poster designed by an artist, or THE FIRST year of a band's existence. There are lots of FIRSTS that one can collect--but be certain of one thing--there will always be more people that want to own these items than there is supply to go around. So it's up to you to use this knowledge to your advantage. You won't be the FIRST to profit from it and you certainly won't be the last!!
