Books to Buy
Buy the book before you buy the poster.
Decades of experience and thousands of collectors have proven this to be an incontrovertible law for success. In fact, we have yet to meet even a single collector who has successfully neglected this rule — and this applies to any collectible — not just vintage rock concert posters! The bottom line is that the more educated you are, the more successful you will be – no exceptions!
