Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin is having its own "Celebration" in The Rock and Roll Summer Classic Auction.  "Over the years we have been fortunate to offer high-end Led Zeppelin collectibles and we are excited to once again have a most unique offering of fantastic memorabilia mementos", comments Backstage Auctions owner Jacques van Gool. "Led Zeppelin is one of the most collectible bands in the world and their fans are exceptionally loyal - and knowledgeable. All this makes for a great event and we couldn't be more pleased to be part of it".

There are quite a few gems in the collection which can all be viewed here: Led Zeppelin Auction Highlights

The undisputed Crown Jewel of the auction is a John Bonham owned and worn hat (ca. 1976 - 1977), which came directly from the Bonham estate and includes unquestionably provenance. Any authentic John Bonham collectible demands attention but this will make you sit straight up!

Another piece that could easily become the highlight of anyone's Led Zeppelin collection is this original RIAA re-issued hologram award, issued to Robert Plant.

Those looking for something vintage and truly one-of-a-kind need not to look any further. The auction includes the only known to exist 1973 Tuscaloosa concert t-shirt, which was printed by the student body of the University of Alabama...and subsequently confiscated by Peter Grant and his amigos. That is for this one remaining shirt!

Other desirable collectibles are autographed CDs by Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, unique promotional items that include a tour crew jacket, the infamous gray blimp, as well as the 20th anniversary release of 'Stairway to Heaven'.

 Special attention should be given to the many lots of vintage vinyl, promotional CDs and unique radio broadcast and live records and CDs. Each and any of these lots provide a fantastic opportunity to scoop up a sizeable chunk of Led Zeppelin audio that would otherwise take years to pull together.

Because there is so much to see and digest, the auction will start with a preview week, beginning Saturday August 31. The auction will start Saturday,  September 7 and will end Sunday September 15.
