sex pistols signed newspaper advert for Pretty Vacant, circa 1977
Here's a quick question for music fans.

“Name the most important band of all-time”.

Is it A) The Beatles, or B)...

Well let's stop there. It's “A” isn't it.

But here's a better question: Name the next band on that list.

A band that influenced everything. Music, fashion, film, art, attitudes.

A band that deserves an entire, filthy chapter in the music history books.

You could well say that's The Sex Pistols.

The Sex Pistols were more than just a band. They were a force of nature.

They blew away the past in a whirlwind of chaos.

They sparked a cultural revolution.

And they recorded 'Never Mind the Bollocks' - one of the most influential rock albums of all-time.

If you were a teenage punk fan, you'll remember what it felt like to hear The Sex Pistols for the first time.

It was life-changing.

And more than 45 years later, the band's legacy is stronger than ever.

Punk has been called “the most important cultural phenomenon of the late 20th century”.

So if you're putting together a serious music memorabilia collection, it has to include The Sex Pistols.

That's where it gets tricky. Genuine signed pieces are rare.

I only have one item available in stock.

But it's a really good one.
sex pistols signed newspaper advert for the single Pretty Vacant
It's an original newspaper advert for their classic 1977 single Pretty Vacant.

Fully signed. In period. By the iconic line-up. At their most notorious.

Johnny Rotten. Paul Cook. Steve Jones. Sid Vicious.

All four signatures are clear, crisp and 100% genuine.

The advert measures 10” by 6”, and was clipped from a page of the NME, dated July 9th, 1977.

This is a fantastic piece, handsomely framed and ready for immediate display.

I've never seen another one like it in all my career.

Authentic sets of Sex Pistols signatures like this the Holy Grail for many fans.

Because they were barely around long enough to sign any autographs.

They played their first gig in November 1975, and their last in January 1978.

That's just over two years. And Sid Vicious only joined in March 1977.

The iconic line-up was together for just 10 months.

And when they did play live, fans were too busy pogoing to ask for autographs.

The band were more likely to spit in your eye than sign your album.

As Johnny Rotten said, "All we're trying to do is destroy everything."

Punk memorabilia like this was never meant to last. And most of it didn't.

That's why today, collectors are willing to pay serious money to own it.

On the rare occasion Sex Pistols items come up for auction, bidding is fierce and prices are high.

That's why:
  • A signed copy of the album Never Mind the Bollocks sold in 2017 for £14,150
  • A rare A&M Records copy of God Save the Queen sold in 2019 for £16,000
  • Sid Vicious' padlock and chain necklace sold in 2008 for £22,000

Just like the band's legacy, the market for their memorabilia is stronger than ever.

Especially for pieces signed by Sid Vicious.

It's that signature that makes this advert so desirable.

He's the ultimate punk icon.

And his death in 1979 at the age of just 21 makes his autograph incredibly scarce.

That's why items like this are almost impossible to find.

So here's your chance.

You can purchase it today for only £8,500 ($12,720).
