Sex Pistols Signed Cards Johnny Rotten Lydon Sid Vicious Paul Cook Steve Jones Autograph
Product DescriptionThese four pink file cards have been signed by the Sex Pistols in black felt tip pen. Johnny signed his given name "Lydon", a rarity for the time, and Sid mis-spelled his name "Viscious", not particularly surprising considering his state of mind at the time. The 3x5 file cards have been trimmed to fit in the previous owner's scrapbook: Paul Cook's and Johnny Lydon's to about 2 3/4" x 5", Sid's to about 2 1/2" x 5", and Steve's to about 2" x 2 3/4". See inset photo for view of reverse. The signatures were obtained on August 26, 1977 in Middlesborough, while they were playing a gig at the Rock Garden, by a gentleman who worked at the club at that time. The Sex Pistols were on a seven-show tour billed as the SPOTS (Sex Pistols On Tour Secretly)Tour. They billed themselves for this show as "Acne Rabble". Complete band signatures are of course very rare, and were close to impossible to obtain after this tour.
