Up for Sale are two negatives that represent the original cover (before lettering) of Davie Bowie in dress / drag. If you've seen the ultra rare copies of the UK version Bowies Man Who Sold the World. It shows Bowie on a couch dressed in a Michael Fish dress. Most of the covers from 1971 wore out very quickly and finding mint copies going in the low four figures at this time and will only increase in value. The story we're told on these amazing pieces of musical Bowie history was that a large number of items were tossed in the trash in England back in the early 70's after a fight with Bowie and his management. One of those Piss Off moments. Fans recovered some of the items from the trash and the two negatives were part of the recover. Better a fan than the dump. You know. The negatives have a number of small dings or light staining that was hard to see at first in the photos but they are there. The Negatives measure 14" x 14". We are selling them as a fan collectible and give and have no license to reproduce them. If you buy them, it's as a serious collectible (one of a kind probably) If you're a David Bowie collector, you are buying the holy grail of Bowie collectibles.
