1967 Jimi Hendrix Experience & Others Signed Flight Menu
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $2,320.00
The entire Jimi Hendrix Experience band has signed the reverse of this drink and cigarette menu from British United Airways. The front of the in-flight menu card (8.5 x 5.5 inches) lists brands and prices of alcoholic beverages and cigarettes. The blank reverse bears the signatures of the entire Jimi Hendrix Experience: Jimi Hendrix, who writes "Best of luck & Success Jimi Hendrix"; Noel Redding, "Lovely time cheers Noel Redding"; and Mitch Mitchell, "Nice One! Mitch." In 1967, Hendrix toured with three other bands: The Move, Amen Corner and Erie Apartment, from November 14 through December 5. The members of these bands have also signed the card, each delineated by the recipient with a line and the name of the band. Erie Apartment has been misnamed as "Irish Apartment?" Other than a horizontal fold and what appears to be an original, very light coffee stain, this piece is in very fine condition. Since his early, tragic death, Hendrix has emerged as one of the true great rock icons. This is a magnificent Jimi Hendrix signature, and one that is extremely unusual and desirable in that it has an inherent provenance and authenticity, dating from a very specific time and place in late November or early December 1967, far more desirable than most examples seen which provide no context. LOA from James Spence, Steve Grad & John Reznikoff/PSA DNA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $2,320.00
