Janis Joplin and Band Plus the James Cotton Blues Band | $100,000 Worth of Rare Vintage Concert Posters Are Up for Grabs

• Date: 1969

• Minimum presale estimate: $800

Allan Reid, a local Michigan artist, designed this striking poster to advertise a Janis Joplin concert. “It’s my favorite Janis Joplin poster I’ve seen. It’s a knockout,” says Moon. “It’s got a real earthy feel to it. It almost looks homemade.” It bears scars that collectors covet: pin holes, which prove it was actually hung at a venue, or perhaps a record store. Moon is aware of a second example that sold at another auction house for $14,300. (ha.com)
