More Skeletons From the Closet

Another collection of Grateful Dead memorabilia is going on the auction block. Most of it from Vince Welnick’s collection but some material from Pig Pen, John Kahn and Rock Scully stuff as well.
Including A Rock Scully metal attaché case used to transport important items for The Grateful Dead while on tour, 1960s-1980s:


One can wonder what important items besides the band’s payroll might have travelled in this case.
For the tapers there is this collection of soundboards from Welnick’s time with the band:


We may be mostly digital now and some didn’t like the ’90s Dead much but this is enough to bring tears of desire to anyone who collected few or many GD tapes over the years.

Too bad this stuff is selling into a poor economic environment. Too bad I don’t have a few extra worth less today greenbacks.
