One of my favorite ’72 onstage shots of Mick in gold lame jacket, enviable rock & roll hair, cat-swallowed-mouse expression, and hand on hip.

One of my favorite one-of-kind items from my collection: an actual gate card that was hanging in Chicago Stadium during the Stones’ tour stop there in 1975, complete with nine different color-coded tickets (all unused, un-punched, and pristine, lightly glued to a thick paper stock backing) and seating directions for ticket-holders navigating the stadium for the Stones show. I obtained this unique item directly from the surviving son of a longtime vendor and employee of Chicago Stadium, who had passed away and who apparently, punched and collected tickets among other duties for many rock shows and sports events. Seems he had the foresight to save a few notable mementos from the era. This was one of them.
