    Jimi Hendrix Airline Ticket Stub From His Flight To Toronto For Drug Trial (1969). Air Canada ticket stub, serial number "282319618", issued on "24 Nov 69" in Hendrix's name, for a 5pm flight on Dec 6 from JFK, New York, to Toronto, Canada. The stub shows the place of issue "Ardel Travel / Bureau Inc / New York, NY". Measures 7.5" x 3.25". In Very Good Plus condition, with slightly ragged left edge, where the ticket was torn out.

    This ticket stub is dated Dec 6, 1969, two days before Jimi Hendrix's appeared in Toronto for his trial for alleged drug possession. The charges dated back to May 3 1969, when Hendrix arrived at Toronto International Airport for a show at Maple Leaf Gardens later that night (see previous lot). When Customs searched his bag, they found two small vials of what they suspected to be heroin and hashish. At his trial, Hendrix explained that he was not aware that the drugs were in his bags, and that fans often slipped gifts to him, sometimes without his knowledge. Much to his relief, Hendrix was acquitted of all charges.
