    Dee Clark ("Raindrops") / Joe Jones ("You Talk Too Much") 1961 Concert Poster An original cardboard boxing-style window card advertising R&B / pop crossover stars Dee Clark and Joe Jones on Sunday, March 12, 1961 in Topeka, KS. This is part of a very small grouping of coveted Meadow Acres Ballroom posters found together in the 1990's, where there was just one of each, which really helped launch the modern boxing-style poster-collecting hobby.

    What's especially fascinating about this piece is that the color portion of the poster, with blank white box at the top, was accidentally inserted into the press wrong-side up, so the venue info was printed on the back. They caught this, turned the poster over and fed it back into the machine, so that the info got printed into the correct area. A very rare and fun mistake!

    Printed by the E.J. Warner Poster Corp. of New York. Measures 14" x 22". In Very Good condition with staple holes to corners, some very light water staining and grime, a horizontal crease across lower part of "Joe Jones" and general toning. COA from Heritage Auctions.
