This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

You get 8 different invoices for $2 (that is 25¢ each). Vintage dated 1940s invoices that were found in the Brockmeyer Co. warehouse in St. Louis. These are invoices (bills) from Tobacco companies that were sent to Brockmeyer. There are many famous companies in the mix and all have nice letterheads with company logos. They are fun to look at because they have the products listed. For example, i am looking at a United States Tobacco invoices showing where they bought 18 cases of Copenhagen dime tobacco. They are used of course and have typical aging, bends, and folds. We pitched the ones that were damaged, so they are all pretty nice.

#ZZZ126 - 1870s Advertising Trade Card for the American Woven Leather Belting Co. - Milton Bradley
Vintage 5 1/4" wide cardboard advertising trade card. This is a very old one from around 1870. This style of card was used before the advent of fancy color printing in the 1870s. Marked "The American Woven Leather Belting Co. Springfield, Mass." "Edward Coats, Pres" "Office 55 Fuller Building" "Factory, Belchertown, Mass". Interestingly, the printers mark says "Milton Bradley Co. Springfield, Mass". Around 1870, Milton Bradley had a lithography shop which is where these were made. Since they were printing boxes for their toys, they made some extra money doing lithography on the side too. They have a little paper aging, but are in amazing condition considering they are over 140 years old.

##MUSICBP2001 - Grateful Dead Car Window Tour Sticker/Decal - Skeleton Smoking a Joint under a Mushroom with Rainbow
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage 4 1/2" diameter Grateful Dead sticker/decal. These are high quality art decals that were made for car windows. I peeled the cover off for the picture. They are in mint condition and can still be used. This one is from around the late 1980s and has an artist signature Jeremy. It features a skeleton smoking a joint and hanging onto a giant mushroom with a rainbow, mountains, and sky in the background.
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.

#BA701 - 1998 OTTO Cloth Backstage Pass for the NBA Draft Party

They are very scarce and were found at the Clem Bottling Company in Marvern, Arkansas.

#BEADS0151 - Irregular Shape Handmade (Lampwork) Colorful Bead - Japan
Price is 40¢/bead. Vintage very colorful blue, brown, and black handmade bead. These average about 1/2" or so in diameter, but the sizes vary a little. The number of side varies too. Somewhere between eight and ten. Because they were handmade (also known as lampwork beads), no two are alike. These were still on their original strings with "Made in Japan" tags. They are unusual.

They are in unused condition, and fantastic. Bright colors. Like most of the others in this find, so far as we can tell, there are no other examples of these to be found anywhere online, or anywhere else period. They came into the store around 1967.They were sold as hippie beads in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area. In 1967, the hippie phenomena dominated the area and the demand for beads was huge. The owner of this store put out the call that he wanted all types of beads that were either colorful, large, earthenware, or had mystical significance. Some of the items that he brought into the store were much older, and we will note them in the listings. The hardcore hippies wanted glass or ceramic or earthenware, so that is what most of these items are. The lucite stuff was for the fake hippies. The demand started slacking as the hippie phenomena died down and by the mid 1970s, they started selling gold chains and disco related items instead. The hippie items were taken from the front shelves, and stored in the back. The newspaper they were wrapped in was dated 1977, so that's when they put them back there. The most striking thing in the store is an old display of huge African Trade Bead necklaces from the 1800s. They were even selling those sort of beads to the hippies. One of those necklaces will run you about 2 grand now. That place is a real time warp. You could still smell incense around some of the boxes and I kept hearing Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane in my head. Just amazing.
