When it comes to important historical reggae figures, there is Bob Marley in a league of his own, then everyone else. That's why it seems that almost every Marley item we offer at auction commands record bidding activity and prices realized. This lot is special in two ways, it's from the highly sought after Pacific Northwest region, and it remains in the exact same condition as it was created 41 years ago! Printed on thin card stock, this relic is without a doubt one of the highlights of this entire auction.

 

With Betty Wright supporting, this concert took place during Marley's "Survival" tour. Very few of these ultra rare Paramount Theatre original posters survived the passage of time, and even FEWER survived in this perfect tip top museum quality condition! We have only seen this poster twice over the last 10 years. In February 2018, a same graded example realized a high water mark of $1392 in our auction. With regard to desirability, this piece is a world class collectible. The ultimate survival!!! You can learn more about a new film being produced about the legendary Bob Marley by his daughter Cedella Marley here.
