##MUSICBQ0239 - 1989 The Who Licensed Pinback Button from "Button-Up"
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage colorful picture of the album cover for the Who's Tommy. Marked "Copyright 1989 P.P.M.C. (the mark that is common on a lot of Who licensed merchandise)" around the rim, and from the late 1980s. It also says "Button-Up Co. 2011 Austin" (Please note - 2011 Austin Drive, Troy MI was their address, and the "2011" is often mistaken for the date - they are substantially older than that). These licensed types are very scarce, yet easy to identify by the licensing info on the side of the button. Most of the musical pinbacks that you see for sale on Ebay or other online sites are reproductions. These licensed types retail for much higher prices. They are unused, and we uncovered them very recently in an old vending warehouse here locally.

##MUSICGD2069 - Grateful Dead Tour Sticker/Decal - State of Massachusetts with Bear and Steal Your Face
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage 4" square Grateful Dead sticker/decal. These are high quality art decals. This type sticks on the outside of glass or a mirror or your pocket. They are in mint condition and can still be used. This one is from the 1980s. The decal features a Grateful Dead bear standing against the State of walking across a backwards image of the State of Massachusetts. This all appears in the place where the brain should be in a Steal Your Face (Grateful Dead character) skull. These were made for various states and sold when the tour went to a certain state. This is the Massachusetts version. Excellent unused condition.

These Grateful Dead stickers/decals are old tour merchandise. I found them wrapped in plastic in boxes in master cases. They came from a distributor who sold them to tour vendors. The condition is pristine and they still will work as a car decal or window/mirror sticker. We found them packed away in storage boxes dated 1992 (many are older than that) and 1995 (year Jerry Garcia died). They are high quality artist renderings of Grateful Dead themes. Back in the day, the Dead did not monitor copyrights and that sort of thing, and in fact, at one point encouraged artists to do designs. The LA times explained it well “The Grateful Dead was famously lax in enforcing it’s intellectual property rights and trademarks, allowing fans to create their own designs using the band’s expansive iconography”. Since there was no serious monitoring or much concern back then, a lot of up and coming artists got involved in designing them. This is how some of them got their starts. Some of the sticker artists who designed these stickers went on to produce official licensed works for the Grateful Dead and other famous groups. These stickers include some by now famous designers including David Opie, and others. These 1995 and older stickers are very hard to find anymore.
