A vintage, genuine Willie Nelson concert poster from Kansas City, Kansas in 1963 with a few stars of the Grand Ole’ Opry sharing the bill with Willie.
This boxing-style billboard / broadside was printed by the Colorcraft Poster Co. of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and measures 14 inches wide by 22 inches tall.
This original country music window card has Hall-of-Famer Tex Ritter headlining, along with new star Bill Anderson.
Willie Nelson was still mainly known as a songwriter in 1963, not a recorder of hit records. Fortuitously, this concert placard shows two of his biggest compositions ever, right under his name: “Hello Walls” and “Crazy.”
Don’t check out early, because at the end of this video I pull out a Patsy Cline concert poster from 1960 to flash you. (It doesn’t get its own video because it’s pretty plain-looking.)
Both C&W posters enthusiastically shown off by collector Pete Howard of PosterCentral.com (cell phone 805-540-0020, email address firstname.lastname@example.org).
