    Stevie Ray Vaughan / Blackbird 1972 Austin Concert Poster. An original vintage concert poster for guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan playing in his high-school band, Blackbird, at the Mother Earth Tavern in Austin, Texas for three consecutive Friday nights in July 1972 when he was just 17 years old. Features a really fun illustration of five crows, or blackbirds, hanging out in a bar. The art was done by well-known artist Micael Priest, who is highly regarded enough that he has his own Wikipedia entry. Anything on Blackbird or Vaughan this early is very seminal and scarce. We were lucky enough to have one of these last year, signed by the artist but in lesser condition, and it realized $1,625. Measures 11" x 17" and grades to Near Mint Minus condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: Slightly toned with age, especially at the top. There might be a poster-wide, soft rolling crease across the top of the poster, just barely anything, and really it's impossible to tell because it's so light – and it doesn't show at all on the verso. Super-benign, but we have to mention everything. What is more evident is a gentle one-inch vertical crease in lower left edge area. Small black marks near the edge under "Mother" and twice on the verso.
