Lot 803: Exceptional assemblage of ballpoint signatures of Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Richie Havens, John Sebastian, Tiny Tim, Keith Moon, Pete Townsend, and Roger Daltrey on four off-white album pages ranging in size from 5 x 3 to 5 x 6. Heavy overall creases and soiling, and many signatures a few shades light (especially The Who and Tiny Tim), otherwise very good condition; Hendrix is one of the strongest signatures. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter of provenance from the original recipient, stating that the "autographs were obtained at the Isle Wight Festival 1970...I was working at this event as a steward...I had been positioned at a gate that allowed the artists access from back stage to an area in front of the stage which enabled them to watch other performers. I was required to look at their badges...I met many of the performers enabling me to collect the autographs." Hendrix passed away just eighteen days after the festival.
