Original Led Zeppelin posters are highly sought after by the most experienced collectors. The band epitomized Rock music and grew to larger than life proportions in a few short years. 

The Bands’ posters from their early years demand the high prices and hardly ever come up for sale. This is because this type of advertising was not nessesary after their first few years. The word spread quickly about Zeppelin and in short time they were selling out cavernous arenas &  stadiums around the world and the need to promote with posters was not a primary concern.

This poster  was used to promote a concert at the Swing Auditorium in San Bernardino California a now defunct 10 000 seat arena in southern California. 

 This is only the second time we have seen this poster offered for sale .We sold a severely damaged copy of this poster in our December 2013 sale for $1700 that poster was subsequently restored and sold for $3500 in another sale. This copy is in much better condition and in its original condition !
