    Description

    Roy Orbison M & M Skateway Concert Poster (1960). Very Rare. Window card printed in blue, black and red for a show in Suisun, CA on Sat. Oct. 8. The poster features two images: one a headshot of Orbison, unusually without his trademark sunglasses, the second showing his orchestra. The poster also lists three of Orbison's recent releases: "Only The Lonely", "Today's Teardrop" and "Blue Angel". Printed by "Tilghman Press...Oak.". Measures 14" x 22". In Very Good Plus condition, with some brown discoloration along the blue right edge, several surface scuffs to Orbison's face, and to lower part of poster, minor loss in places to the black lettering, slight printing imperfection in the blue area above the word "Roy", toning to white areas.

    This is the first time that Heritage has ever offered an example of this poster. It is one of the most coveted of all Orbison posters, showing an image of him without his later, trademark sunglasses.
