Relentlessly Upgrade

News

There are several common traits that are shared among the world's most successful collectors. 


One of them is the practice of continually and relentlessly upgrading the material in your collection. Upgrading gives you maximum results for minimal investment. Let me explain. There is no question that owning the highest quality material is the way to go for the long haul. When you buy the best, you own something that becomes increasingly more desirable with each passing year. When you own the ordinary and run-of-the-mill, you will always own something that elicits a big yawn when it is offered for public sale.

With this knowledge, it is critical that you scrutinize the posters in you collection and selectively weed out the least desirable material and replace it with top of the line pieces. The proceeds you receive form the sub-par items can now be re-deployed into items that will bring you a lot more satisfaction in the years ahead.

Carefully review the pieces you own and replace the ones that don't immediately touch a special place in your heart. We all take a lot of pride of ownership in our collections, it is immensely satisfying to own pieces that are beautiful, rare, historically important and in pristine Mint Condition.

By making sure every piece you own meets this strict criteria, you are guaranteeing that you will always be enthusiastic about collecting and you can be assured that this wonderful hobby will bring you even greater satisfaction with each passing.

PAE's Biggest Challenge

News

Being a dealer in Classic 1960's Psychedelic Concert Posters is a rewarding and fun endeavor on many levels. 


We get to meet lots of interesting people that were around "back in the day", we get to discuss and work with material that is directly connected to musical artists we're intensely passionate about and the posters practically sell themselves once someone fully understands how beautiful, rare and historically important this artwork is. Our biggest frustration is that there is no way to fully show a "newbie" how awesome these pieces are without getting the actual artwork in their hands! Small images posted on a website do not even come close to the experience of holding this history in your hands.

In person, this artwork literally comes to life and takes your breath away. The posters are look, feel and smell old. Ask any collector, and they will tell you this is so! That's why once someone finally decide to "test the water" and acquire their first piece, they end up catching "the bug" and building a collection.

So here's two pieces of advice we give to every visitor of PAE.

1) If you think you are interested in these posters and are curious about them, remember that you take ZERO RISK when dealing with PAE. Every item we sell is backed by the strongest guarantees in the business and we're not happy unless you are completely thrilled. Get this amazing artwork in your hands and decide for yourself. We don't think you'll be disappointed!

2) When viewing items in our store and auctions, be sure to click on each picture for a more accurate, enlarged, detailed view. While not perfect, and not close to the grandeur of the originals, these very large, full screen shots will give you a FAR better idea of the eye appeal and impact this artwork provides.

Measurable Upside

News

For the past few years we have been reporting that long time, sophisticated and other "smart money" has begun accumulating Classic 1960's Concert Posters in Mint Condition because they perceive them to be the most under valued collectibles in the world today. 


This aggressive move is not based on speculation or mere "hunches", but on cold, hard facts based on math and logic.

Let's say that 1500 copies of a poster were originally issued. For most issues, this means that 10-15%, or 150-225, probably exist in some sort of condition. For the typical issue, just 5-10%, or 7-22 copies exist in Mint condition. This means that a Mint condition example is 10-20 times rarer than a run of the mill, damaged copy.

Right now, you can buy most issues in Mint Condition, when you are lucky enough to locate one, for just 2-3 times a damaged copy. This leaves the buyer with a tremendous value and a true bargain that is sure to be in more demand with each passing year. Not only are these rare Mint Condition pieces a great value compared to used examples, they are also a great value compared to the premiums that other Mint Condition collectibles bring in other markets.

It is not at all unusual in other collectibles for Mint Condition pieces to bring 25-100 times the value of a used copy!

The premiums on Mint Condition posters, compared to used examples, has only one way to go..up. If you consider yourself a connoisseur and like to collect the best, the present market prices represent a unique window of opportunity that is sure to slam shut soon. Carpe Diem!
