Hey, you DID find something new. I only know about it because it was my business for many years, and I still am a collector. Actually, my non-compete clause runs out in 11 months and I may go back into the business (ssshhh, that's a secret)
The bottom line on Fillmore stuff, by the way, is that most of it isn't rare at all & in many cases, the prices have been intentionally inflated. Bill Graham printed thousands more of everything than he actually needed. Tickets are the perfect example - there are over 2 million uncirculated tickets to old Fillmore shows still available - for some shows, there are over 5000 tickets in the "vaults" (considering the Fillmore only held about 1200 people, that's a lot of tickets).
To date, the most expensive San Francisco rock poster sold is probably the Acid Test - one showed up a couple of years ago with an unusal venue marker and it went for over $26,000.00. Time to check in the attic people - I still buy these crazy old things.

Which is why I could (and probaby should) shoot the Wicked Witch of Rosemont, who claims that boxes of my hippie stuff and record collection "just disappeared - I don' know where that stuff is" when I decided to move out. Actually, most of my clothes and other stuff "disappeared", too.
She had no idea what it was worth, so I doubt she still has the stuff. I take some small consolation in that she probably either sold it at a flea market or garage sale for beer money or used it as fuel for a backyard bonfire while casting some sort of voodoo/vengeance spell my way. Either way, at least she didn't profit much from it.
I least I managed to get my guitars, basses and other musical equipment out before she could torch them as she threatened.
