I am disposing of my extensive collection of badges and patches, which I built up mostly at concerts in the 1970s and 1980s. The majority are rock and heavy metal, but there are a few of other genres. I will also be listing a few T shirts and magazines (Kerrang!, NME, Sounds, etc.), plus concert programmes and related items, so please keep watching my listings. I have made every effort to keep all my items in excellent condition (although this has not always been possible with the paper items), so the vast majority are as new or nearly so.
This official 20 page illustrated programme was published in about 1978 (there is an advertisement inside for the band's then upcoming second album), when it came into my possession at a concert at the Apollo in Manchester. It has lain undisturbed in a drawer for most of the time since then, so it is in excellent condition overall, apart from very minor scuffs and creases, but the staples are beginning to rust, a natural consequence of the passage of time.
There is an adhesive price sticker on the front cover, which I put there when I ran a stall at a record fair in Manchester in the early 1990s. The customers that day spurned this item, so it survives to find a new home courtesy of ebay.
I am also selling a number of similar items, so please check my other listings.
Payment accepted in sterling by cheque, postal order or International Money Order. Please note that Canadian or US Money Orders in USD cannot be cashed in England; only International Money Orders made out in Pounds Sterling are acceptable. British banks are no longer accepting Eurocheques.

The cost of insurance is, for the UK,
77p for Recorded Delivery. This gives coverage up to £46. Above that
amount, Special Delivery is advisable. This costs £5.45 for items
weighing less than 100g, and £5.90 for items weighing between 100g and

realise that insured shipping is not always cost-effective on items of
low value, and so I used to offer shipping without insurance, at buyer's
own risk, which many customers welcomed, as it was much cheaper, but
since 22 September 2009, ebay have removed the ability of the seller to
offer insurence as an optional extra. Therefore, all my listings will
have a combined handling/shipping charge which is inclusive of
insurance. Please contact me IN ADVANCE OF BIDDING if you would prefer
shipping without insurance.
would rather not be paid by echeque, and you will not receive your item
before any such payments have been cleared, which on past experience
can take anything up to 3 weeks. Please ensure that your Paypal account
is in credit before sending any payment.
My preferred method of payment is by cheque drawn on a UK bank. If you can pay by this method, then insurance is not compulsory.
Please do not bid unless you agree with ebay/PayPal's conditions.
UK £1.75, Europe £7, rest of world £8.
I will gladly combine items to save on postage, but if you are thinking of placing further bids, please alert me BEFORE your first item has been packed, as I would prefer not to have to unpack and repack items.
Please note that I never end auctions early, as it is not fair on other bidders. Anyone making such a request will automatically be added to my Blocked Bidders list, along with non-payers, those who repeatedly pay late and those who refuse to return feedback when requested.
Finally, please do not be concerned if you do not hear from me immediately following the end of the auction, as I often have to work away from home for several days at a time.
