Lightnin' Hopkins and Mance Lipscomb, Lot of Two, Original Signed Vintage Handbills, Fresh Air Tavern, 1509 Broadway, Seattle, Washington, February 1-5, 1972; artist, "IRV" with his imprint to bottom right corner with date "72". Each is individually SIGNED by Mance Lipscomb and Lightnin' Hopkins, who has inscribed "Keep Smiling, From Lightnin Hopkins". A pair of very uncommon handbills for this 1960-70's Seattle music venue, featuring the two blues greats in a five day concert presentation; Mance Lipscomb appearing with Lightnin' for the weekend performances. Printed to thin, off-white fragile paper stock, 8.5" by 11", the Hopkins-signed piece is very good with pinholes and adhesive residue to corners, light material loss to the bottom right corner, and mild damp stain to the bottom middle and verso. The Lipscomb-signed piece is about very good, with corner clipping and adhesive residue, with over-all light cockling. Fresh Air handbills are uncommon, with the scarce signature of two blues greats, and rare signed in this matching format. Autograph provenance, the extensive blues collection of the late Walter Glenn. J2288
