MISCELLANEOUS STRANGE AND WONDROUS THINGS

Jim Marshall photo of Chet Helms, original 6" x 9" B & W photo, mounted on 11" x 14" mat board, SIGNED "Jim Marshall - 80 -" Image depicts image of a young, long haired, smiling Chet Helms, from what looks like the Avalon Ballroom days, 1980 or so. Photo uses the kaleidoscope effect that was popular in those days with a central images surrounded by circular lighter images in the background. Great photo as you'd expect from Marshall, arguably the most influential and iconic counterculture photographer of the 1960s. Very hard to price this asking prices for signed Marshall photos on the Internet can run well into the thousands of dollars. I'm going to put it out at $350 which seems like it should be a good deal for someone out there a fair price for an original signed photograph of one deceased 60's icon by another.

SOME THINGS YOU ALMOST HATE TO LET GO. Here's one that falls into that category: Zap Comics Issue #14, UNCUT PRINTER'S PROOF OF FRONT AND BACK COVER SHEETS by VICTOR MOSCOSO, machine folded and printed on reverse, but not trimmed and with printer registration marks. This issue, done after Rick Griffin's untimely death, features Moscoso's tribute to Rick Griffin on the front cover. This is easily the best artistic tribute to Griffin that I've seen to date, and is one of the nicest examples of Moscoso's art I've seen in a long, long time....maybe ever! The covers have a "heaven and hell" theme, with the front featuring a Griffin-like character with a halo surfing down a giant wave, with a paintbrush for a surfboard, accompanied by a teeny flying eyeball on a pencil, flashing the peace sign. The reverse has a similar image, but this time the wave is reversed so that it is blood red with a flaming crest, the surfer has tiny horns and bat wings, and is riding a rapidograph. All of this is rendered in brilliant colors. When you open the front and back together, the effect is doubly striking, in fact, just fantastic. For illustration of the image, click here. I was fortunate to purchase a small batch of these awhile back and was able to get Victor Moscoso to sign 7 copies at the TRPS poster show last fall. When Victor saw them, he said that he had never seen an uncut cover sheet of this issue before and that the 7 he signed are the only ones he's even been asked to sign (he does not attend a lot of signing events anymore so there are limited opportunities to obtain his signature). I am offering 1 of the signed ones (illustrated) for $300 each. I also am offering 1 unsigned one for $125. (*)

The Opposite Six, circa 1965-66, business card for this Sacramento area garage band, different from the Marin County band of the same name that evolved into the Sons of Champlin.
