Hi Bill,
I own a Disco Sucks ball cap that I wore to an AC DC show and subsequent meet/autograph event at Sound Warehouse, Houston, Texas, September 1979.  I do not have any photos of myself at the event.  I am donating the cap to a fundraising event in Houston this month to benefit a well respecting area musician suffering from cancer.  I would like to know what you would consider a fair starting bid and ask your permission to include your opinion of the authenticity of the autograph.

Hi Deb,

Thank you for your question and for the images of the hat. Great hat!
As long as you feel that there will be sufficient interest in the autographs and hat at the event, I would say that a fair starting price would be in the $200-300 range. I would say that you should receive at least $500 for the hat, if not a bit more.

To the best of my knowledge, I would consider the autographs on your hat to be authentic.

Good luck on the auction, and best wishes to the musician in recovering!

Best Regards,
