It has been reported that this brand-new series offers fans an opportunity to own a piece of rock history. The collection combines rare physical memorabilia from the band with a blockchain-authorized nonfungible token (NFT) certificate of authenticity.
However, the recently released collection consists of three photos taken by photographer Jay Thompson. The photos feature Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham and John Paul Jones during the 1969 photo shoot at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont.
The report said that each purchase includes a pair of vintage, tangible tickets from Led Zeppelin’s Chicago Stadium concert in 1980. It’s worth noting that the concert was sadly cancelled due to the death of the band’s drummer. The tickets were never sold, and the original Led Zeppelin era came to an end.
Likewise, the Led Zeppelin collection contains two tiers for fans. There’s the Platinum tier, which includes 99 editions of each of the three photographs priced at $199. Fans will receive a physical 16-by-16 photograph along with two original tickets from the cancelled 1980 tour.
The Diamond tier will also provide five fans with a 30-by-24 professionally framed and engraved photograph of Led Zeppelin. Additionally, each purchase will come with an NFT certificate of authentication minted on the Tezos blockchain that confirms the collector’s ownership.
Thus, Brita Turner, the General Manager at eBay, said:
“With this drop, eBay is connecting Led Zeppelin fans with storied pieces of the band’s history – and affirming the authenticity of this legendary memorabilia with blockchain technology. Collectors and enthusiasts turn to eBay for the rare, exclusive and iconic, and these original Led Zeppelin tickets and photographs highlight the unique items eBay brings to music fans, and to all collector communities.”
