One of the more unique Globe posters we've ever auctioned - a Cardboard STANDING poster (with the folding flap on the reverse) produced for Mr Dynamite himself - The great James Brown! This piece is also special because of its original cut-out arch at the top, which shapes the poster in a very unique tombstone style! The hardest working man in show business toured relentlessly in the sixties, seventies, and eighties. He earned names like The King of Soul, and The Godfather of Rock n Roll, and he’s forever celebrated as one of the top performers of this era! 

 

From its opening in 1929 until its closure in 2010, Globe Poster Company in Baltimore was the go-to place for musicians, circuses, drag races, and concert producers for bold, eye-catching letterpress advertising. It's no secret that Globe cardboard concert posters are the gold standard amongst advanced collectors. They rarely show up at public auction and when they do, they are always met with enthusiastic bidding! 

 

Here's a magnificent head turner that contains everything you could ever want, all in one poster! 1) James Brown was the man that started it all, giving this poster unsurpassed historical significance. 2) This is a CARDBOARD GLOBE poster, and Globe posters are universally considered to amongst the most desirable concert posters EVER issued. 3) Unlike most surviving Globes, this lot is 100% Original and free of restoration. It features 100% full borders with no tears. 4) This specimen is extra special because it's a cardboard STANDING poster, with the folding flap on the reverse!
