Other items that went for big bucks include: a Rolling Stones shirt for $4,750; three Hendrix concert posters for $10,625, $16,250 and $18,750; a Yardbirds shirt worn by rock journalist Greg Shaw to the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 for $3,000; a maroon Led Zeppelin concert tee from 1973 for $1,625; and a “War is over! If you want it” shirt inspired by the John Lennon Song, “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” for $1,875.
