    So I’m selling some stuff online for an elderly friend who was in Chicago as a teen in the 60’s. Music memorabilia and whatnot. She needs the money. Most of it is cool but not amazing, till this fell out of a Yardbirds photo book:

    3D2622B5-735D-4E26-97C4-738DF9D00199.jpeg 532DB842-D6AE-4D9C-9B74-B7C263E3A2AE.jpeg

    I called her and she confirmed that she did a back stage meet and greet in the 60’s when she saw the Yardbirds live. So those are real autographs from Page and Beck. Yikes.

    I’m guessing this might do quite well on eBay.

    Cool that’s all the yardbirds
    Great find
    Do you know the date she got them?
    I guess you could narrow it down as beck and page were only in the birds together for a short time

    If that’s legit, it’s an amazing piece of rock memorabilia.

    That lineup of the yardbirds was only together for a minute.

    While I don’t have a certificate of authenticity, I have sold enough of her other stuff (loads of original LP pressings of Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Doors, etc. along with a bunch of Beatles US Fan Club merch, some Elvis stuff from 56 she had as a kid, you get the idea) that I totally believe she was there. Whether folks online will believe that is another story, but either way the autographs are still a cool find.

    Get your friend to write a letter describing how, when and where she got the autographs and make sure she signs and dates the letter. It's called establishing provenance and collectors like it.

    That lineup was intact October 28, 1966. I went to see them in Dallas Tx for my birthday. That was the night I decided I wanted to play guitar professionally. First paying gig a year and a half later, made the princely sum of $20 for two hours work- I was in TALL cotton! Wish I had the scratch to get those autographs- oh, well....

    After talking to some folks and doing some of my own thinking, I’ve contacted the rock n roll hall of fame (no response yet) and Southeby’s. Southeby’s apparently has its own “listing it yourself” options which I may have to explore later. Only thing is I have loads of good feedback on eBay but never did Southeby’s before. The adventure continues.


    Thanks for the tip. I am having her do exactly that.

    Best Yardwalkers lineup, for sure.

    The hair still stands up on the back of my neck, playing these Yardbirds songs and this simply doesn't happen with the Zeppelin stuff. For what that's worth.

    see if you can get a written statement from her of the event, and go for some authenticity verification , once you have that pedigree then thats where the value is , there is no doubt it is real , but authentification is the dollars!

    beautiful find congrats!

    I had her write a letter describing the event as she remembers it. But the auction on eBay is done. I’m glad we got what we got for it.

    That’s awesome good for you guys

    I’m glad you came back to post about it I was curious since you posted the discovery

    I had no idea it would sell for that much

    cool

    Someone’s probably going to frame it with just the page and beck signatures visible and put it in their music cave

    Do you know what year this happened?
    Did she remember the date she got it?
    Or could you track it down through a tour schedule?

    She didn’t get too specific in the letter, but it was in Chicago and I did find a ticket stub for August 6th amongst the items. Wasn’t sure if that was for that particular show or something else.
