Helpful Hints    Auction Text Catalog

Welcome to The Rock & Pop Auction, an event unlike any other auction we have done in the past. With over 1,200 auction lots this is a true celebration of music memorabilia in every imaginable way. Every decade from the 1960s onwards is represented with mementos from all the genres; Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Punk, Grunge, Pop, Rap, Jazz, Blues, Country and R&B. With a dazzling depth of collectibles ranging from the AC/DC through ZZ Top, you will find gem after gem. Loads of autographed memorabilia, rare concert jackets and shirts, beautiful record awards, hard-to-find posters, impressive film and photo lots, unique picks and passes, it's all here!

This auction is a parade of highlights and historic collections of David Bowie, KISS, Van Halen, Queen, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Sex Pistols and The Rolling Stones that will resonate with fans and collectors for years to come. It covers main festivals from Woodstock 1969 through Monsters of Rock, the California Punk scene from the 1980s and the early days of Rap with artists such as Run-DMC, LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys.

You will have a chance to own Queen’s first ever American demo reel or the actual stage models built for David Bowie and KISS. And as always, the provenance is rock solid with the majority of memorabilia coming from the private collections of musicians, managers, photographers, record company executives and crew members.

Come feast your eyes on this truly magnificent exhibition of awesome music memorabilia. As always, there's something for everyone and there's something in every price range to make sure that no one will leave the party empty-handed.

Simply put...there is something for everyone's taste and budget!
Now that ROCKS and it ROCKS HARD!

We recommend downloading the Auction Catalog Text document (see below) and utilize our SEARCH feature as well as the CATEGORIES to the left of this page to narrow down what you are looking for.

Please take 2 minutes to read the "Information & Helpful Hints" section below. It will greatly assist you in navigating through all the auction lots and hopefully address some of the questions you might have.

Authenticity: We guarantee the authenticity of all the collectibles we auction. We research all items we receive on consignment; including the history and provenance of the item, the historical value of an item and call upon recognized memorabilia authorities to further insure the authenticity of an item when necessary. We have always offered a guarantee and will continue to offer a guarantee on every item we sell. If an auction lot is pulled from an auction, the decision to do so is the consignor's decision. If you have a question about a particular item, we encourage you to reach out to us either by email or phone.

If at anytime you need assistance in locating any item of interest or simply have a question about an item - please contact us via email or give us a call during business hours. Our contact information can be found in the contact section of our site.

*VIEWING LOTS: You can locate and view auction items by utilizing the CATEGORIES listed directly in the upper left frame of this page. Items can be accessed and viewed by selecting the ARTISTS, TYPE OF ITEM OR DECADE.  There may be items that are listed in several categories, so we also recommend utilizing the AUCTION SEARCH function which can be found in the upper right frame of each auction page.

Once you have successfully logged in with your VIP Credentials (user name and password), placed your bids or simply identified items to track you can click on the MY VIP laminate to view updates on those lots of interest. Unlike most online auctions, there is no need to refresh your browser to see the most recent activity on a lot you are watching or even bidding on.
  • The MY VIP page updates automatically every few seconds, so just sit back and keep an eye on the numbers. And "yes"'s faster than you clicking the refresh button in your browser.
  • When you are outbid on an item, a sound will alert you and the item will be highlighted for a short amount of time.
  •  The MY VIP section allows you to track items, bid on items you are tracking, increase your bids or even increase your max bids and will automatically update all of your personal auction activity.
  • Once you have identified all the items you want to track and bid, the rest is easy and best of all you won't have to waste time digging through the site just to place a bid...just sit back and enjoy the ride!   
It simply doesn't get any easier than that!

*AUCTION CLOSE PROCESS:  On Sunday, October 27th, 2019 the auction close process will begin. Our system will begin a continual 10 minute countdown close at 2:00 pm Eastern (NYC time). What this means is that  EVERY AUCTION LOT will REMAIN OPEN (even after the official 2:00 PM EST close process begins) for periods of 10 minutes until such time that no additional online or phone bids are placed on ANY LOT IN THE AUCTION.

: Our auctions will typically continue well past the 2:00 pm close time for several hours. Take advantage of placing your maximum bids or changing your existing maximum bid on the items you are interested in and keep an eye on those items as the auction begins to close as it will NOT CLOSE IMMEDIATELY at 2:00 pm EST.  For more information and assistance on how our "Auction End" process works, please see our Auction Rules located in the "Resources" tab on our site. Alternatively, give us a call and one of our crew members will be happy to walk you through how the close process works.

* AFTER THE AUCTION CLOSES: All winning bidders will receive an immediate email confirmation of the items they won when the auction officially closes. Final invoices (including shipping costs) will be sent out within 72 hours or by close of business FRIDAY. **For items that require special freight shipping services, a member of the Backstage Auctions crew will contact you directly to make special arrangements.

* PAYMENT: Once you receive your final invoice you will have 7 business days to pay your invoice. Any invoice that is not paid in full will have late charges assessed. If you need to arrange for special payment arrangements, you must contact us immediately after receiving your final invoice. ALL PAYMENTS MUST BE RECEIVED AND CLEARED NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 13, 2019.

* SHIPMENTS: All paid orders will be shipped immediately after receiving payment. PLEASE NOTE: We will not ship any orders after November 15th.

* INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: We will NOT falsify customs forms and declare a lower value. If you would prefer to have your order shipped to a US address, you must contact us immediately after the auction so that we can accurately calculate your shipping costs.

* UNSOLD AUCTION ITEMS: In the event that an item does not sell during the auction, our consignor may elect to place the items in the online store for direct purchase. The price of the auction lot will be adjusted to reflect an appropriate "buy it now" price and in most cases this means that the price will be higher than the opening bid price. There is no guarantee that any or all unsold item(s) will be made available after the auction ends.

As always, we aim to be as precise and complete as possible with our descriptions. That said, human error is always a possibility and we encourage you to ask questions and make inquiries on any piece that you are interested in prior to placing your bid. All auction descriptions ARE QUALIFIED STATEMENTS OF OPINION AND NOT REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES.
