    Janis Joplin Signature/Cal Expo Handbill Framed Display (1969). Here are two pieces of excellent ephemera relating to the inimitable Janis Joplin. First, an autograph from the legendary songstress that helped propel Big Brother and the Holding Company to the heights of late-1960s Rock stardom. Measuring 2.75" x 4.75", the signature reads "Keep on Rockin'!!/Janis Joplin", and was obtained in Baltimore in 1969. The second piece is a rare handbill, measuring 5.25" x 8", from a Joplin concert on October 11, 1969, in Sacramento, California. The signature exhibits smoothed folds, some creasing, two small tears, and a tiny area of loss at the bottom left. The handbill has several tackholes, primarily in the top corners. Both pieces attractively matted and framed under glass to an overall 11.75" x 20.5". Fine. COA from Heritage Auctions.
