I have been collecting, buying and selling SRV memorabilia since 1990. I am not nearly as active in the marketplace as I was from 1993 to 2010 when I had a large quantity of inventory. I still come across a few special things, and I continue to downsize my own collection. Please also see my film, sports and other music collectibles on other pages of this site.
The following items are the best I currently have to offer. Some are items previously owned by Stevie Ray Vaughan.
USED BY THE MASTER! I currently have ONE genuine guitar pick USED by Stevie Ray Vaughan to make some of the most remarkable music ever heard. This is a Fender Medium pick showing extreme wear from Stevie’s use, so much that it is cracked and there is a small chip missing!! I have been playing for almost 50 years and I have never chipped a pick. This pick’s condition is the result of the passion and fervor with which Stevie played. It comes with a statement of authenticity from Stevie’s roadie/guitar tech and dates to the period 1982-1985. I’m not sure why I am letting this out of my possession, but it can be yours. Another fan agreed to pay $1850 for this pick, but encountered difficulties with payment from outside the US. His loss can be your gain.
Of the 17 varieties of Stevie’s custom guitar picks with his name printed on them (see article elsewhere on this site), there were three that just said “Stevie Ray” with no last name. These tortoise shell color with his name in white letters date to 1984-1985. They were ordered through Charlie’s Guitar Shop in Dallas. I have SIX available at $600 each plus s/h. The first pick in the photo shows wear from use, but it is not believed to have been used by Stevie. You may request which one you want as long as they are available. Sorry the photo is a little blurry.
Jeans owned, worn and initialed by Stevie Ray Vaughan. It was Stevie’s practice to write his initials on the inside of the pocket of his jeans to make sorting laundry easier on the road. Stevie wrote “SRV” on the pocket of these jeans. They are in excellent condition and are likely stage-worn, but they’re jeans and difficult to differentiate. Maybe you can find a distinguishing mark to match with a photo. If I take the time to find a photo match, they’re going to be a lot more expensive, so strike while you can at this price. $2,500.
MISCELLANEOUS SRV ITEMS

From the 2000 SRV box set, a 17 x 11 inch poster on heavy card stock with an iconic image of legendary guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan playing the guitar behind his head. Note the Jimi Hendrix pin on his shirt! Also included is the counter-top promotional display sent to record stores, approximately 7 x 7 inches, easel-backed (one only; both sides shown in the photo). Also included is the easel-backed black box (back shown; still in open original shrink wrap) that held 30 posters for the record stores to give away with purchases. Also included in this listing is the paper instruction sheet for the promotional items sent to record stores. These items have been in my collection since 2000, obtained directly from the record company (I assisted with the liner notes). $40 for all 4 items; $35 for 3 items (no instruction sheet).
I did an exhibition of Stevie Ray Vaughan memorabilia (3500 square feet space in downtown Dallas) for a year in 2006-07. These are what is left of the promotional posters I had made. They are in excellent condition, approximately 17 x 11 inches. They feature one of my favorite images of the legendary guitarist. Some of the posters have small banners affixed to them to advertise the extension of the exhibit for an additional six months. $5 each.

Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Real Deal: Greatest Hits 1, CD still sealed. I used to give these away at events to kids. I probably have 50-75 of these. Contact me if you are a music teacher (are there any of those left?) and will pledge to give these to kids in your classes. Free to teachers for use with your students – just pay inexpensive media mail postage.
