Rare Pop & Rock Paper Collectables: rare Concert Handbills, Posters and Postcards

We’re not just all about Vinyl LPs and CDs… we regularly source collections of what we broadly refer to as ‘paper goods’. This is anything from the obvious tour programmes, posters and books to the more obscure, but highly desirable, items such as tour itineraries, old gig tickets, handbills, press books, cinema/movie theatre lobby cards and more.  Over many years, we have had some extraordinary handbills from Japan where it is still commonplace for music stores and labels to hand out flyers for forthcoming albums and gigs.  Unique in design, often double sided, and normally printed to glossy stock paper, virtually a mini poster in its own right.  Find these and many more non-audio collectables here at eil.com…

  1. Hello, Im Mark, I live in Weymouth in Dorset. I have a lot of Melody Makers from the 1940s Plus hundreds of music magazines including Record Collectors starting from 1979. How do I go about saling them, & getting a decent price.

    • Hi Mark,

      Thanks for contacting us – I’m afraid we wouldn’t look to buy these, mainly because over the years we’ve acquired quite a few! I’m sure they will have some value, particularly if an issue has something ‘historic’ about it, for example, John Lennon’s death, have a look on eBay to get an idea of what they sell for. Thanks Tim
