Be the first collector ever to see this photograph
This item has everything we look for.
- It's totally unique
- It relates to a superstar who tragically died young, aged just 27
- The provenance is impeccable, as you'll see
And the investment potential is immense. This man's signed autograph has increased in value by 397.5% in the last 10 years, according to the PFC40 Autograph Index.
That's just for a signature.
Imagine if you could find that signature and a previously unseen photograph?
Remember the value attached to previously unpublished photographs? We wrote about them in a recent newsletter.
Unseen photos of Marilyn Monroe's dog sold for almost $250,000 at a New York auction a few years ago.
A previously unseen nude photograph of British supermodel Kate Moss sold for $366,000.
What we are offering today is a previously unseen photograph of rock legend Jimi Hendrix. The photograph was taken by an autograph collector as Jimi signed their autograph album.
Provenance doesn't get any better than this. This collector actually took a picture as Jimi signed for them.
So why Jimi Hendrix?
Any music fan will know that Rolling Stone Magazine named Hendrix the top guitarist on its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all-time in 2003.
Jimi Hendrix's early death has made him an icon comparable to James Dean and Marilyn Monroe.
In New York in 2006 a set of lyrics to 'Coming down hard on me, baby' sold for $15,870, almost twice the auction estimate.
Then in 2007 a poster of 'The Jimi Hendrix Experience' from a 1968 music festival in Miami sold for $18,750, over 10 times the auction expectation.
In 2008, one of Hendrix's stage amps sold at auction in London for $49,475.
At the same auction a pair of trousers worn by Hendrix in a 1967 photo shoot sold for $30,000.
And interestingly, in recent years two identical green silk jackets have appeared at auction. One belonged to Mick Jagger; it sold for £11,000 ($16,500). The other belonging to Jim Hendrix sold for £35,000 ($52,000).
So Hendrix is clearly popular with collectors, partly because his memorabilia is exceptionally scarce and rarely appears on the market.
His autograph alone is up 397.5% in the last decade.
Today we're offering this unique photograph, and the accompanying autograph "Love, Jimi Hendrix' for just £6,950 ($10,425).

The autograph is now valued at £4,950 ($7,425) in the PFC40 Autograph Index, meaning a totally unique and previously unpublished photograph of Hendrix can be yours for just £2,000 ($3,000).
So how does that compare elsewhere?
Well, in November 2010 Christie's are due to hold a photography auction in Paris. Here are some of the estimates for the vintage photos at the sale:
- Marilyn Monroe $100,000-$150,000
- Brigitte Bardot $70,000-$90,000
- Malcolm X $60,000-$90,000
In comparison $10,425 for a unique Hendrix photo with his autograph is a steal.
The reason is simple.
We want you to get a great deal so you'll buy from us time and time again. We're in the business of building long term relationships with our clients.
