Auction Your Sex Pistols Memorabilia
Sex Pistols Memorabilia
Sex Pistols memorabilia made headlines last year when the band’s manager’s son burned his Sex Pistols memorabilia collection worth millions. Joe Corre, son of former Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren and designer Vivienne Westwood, set fire to clothes and sex pistols memorabilia valued at between six and twelve million dollars on a river barge in London. If you’re opposed to burning money, consign your Sex Pistols memorabilia and do something good with the money.

Exceptionally Rare Sex Pistols & The Clash 1976 “Anarchy in the UK” Tour Poster — From Cancelled Bournemouth Show
Scarce Sex Pistols concert poster, from the 1976 “Anarchy in the UK” tour. Poster lists tour dates and supporting acts, including “The Clash,” “Damned” and “Johnny And the Heartbreakers.” Poster advertises the tour’s cancelled Bournemouth Village Bowl appearance for 7 December 1976, never performed on account of the The Sex Pistols’ profanity laden television appearance. Poster measures 19.5″ x 29″, with some minor scratches, two 1.5″ tears at bottom and one 2″ tear at top. Three of the corners are chipped from mounting. Very good. A rare piece of Sex Pistols memorabilia. Sold for $4,200.

Scarce Sex Pistols Poster for Their Final Tour in the UK — Poster Full of Quotes by Venues Stating They’re Not Welcome
Poster promoting the Sex Pistols’ last shows in the UK: their “Never Mind The Bans” tour. The poster’s designer Jamie Reid puts the punk band’s image to work, proudly displaying a collage of rejection letter clippings from venues that refused to host them. One reads: “…The unfortunate reputation they have gained seems to bring in its wake inevitable scenes of violence and resulting damage…” Slated to play eight shows in the UK from 16-25 December 1977, the turmoil-laden band had to cancel half of them and would never play the UK again. Sid Vicious would die of a heroin overdose on 1 February 1979 at age 21. Very large poster measures 26″ x 38″. Toning, creasing, and scattered tears to edges and separation at fold intersections. In very good condition in a plain black frame. A scarce Sex Pistols poster from the height of their punk rock reign. With provenance from Christie’s. Sold for $3,281.
