Signed Grateful Dead Guitar Auction in Chicago

Posted on July 2nd, 2015 by Goldman Buyer

Starting tomorrow, the Grateful Dead will be performing three shows over the Fourth of July weekend at Soldier Field here in Chicago, in honor of the band’s 50th anniversary. While the audience will get to enjoy some of their biggest hits, the highlight of the weekend will be the auctioning of a signed guitar at the Sunday show.

The auction is being held by HeadCount, a nonprofit organization, and D’angelico Guitars based in New York. The D’Angelico guitar is signed by members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzman, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir.

The band performed shows in California last weekend, where bids for the guitar got up to $42,000. It is expected to reach at least $100,000 here this weekend. Proceeds will go to 17 different non-profits selected by the band.

If you are interested or will be at the Grateful Dead concert, the auction will take place outside section 117 at Soldier Field. The auction will close at 9:30 pm Sunday.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
