    Description

    Leon McAuliffe 1954 Country Swing Music Concert Poster. An original cardboard advertising window card for Leon McAuliffe and his Western Swing Band playing at the B.E.C. Playhouse in Wichita, KS on Friday night, November 12, 1954. Admission was $1.50 per person.

    Leon McAuliffe was a guitarist who had been a member of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys in the 1930's, quite a pedigree. In fact, Mr. McAuliffe is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Texas Playboys.

    Beautiful colors and a snazzy design make this board a cut above most 50's country-western posters. Instead of black the printer used a dark blue, and the background morphs from red through orange down to yellow, to wonderful effect. A wide variety of fonts is then used to convey the information, and some of that info is just plain fun.

    Measures 14" x 22" and grades to Very Good condition. Repaired along the top and bottom portions, as well as the left side of the verso. There is a half-inch tear in the left side of the front. Bumped corners, along with creasing near the corners. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
