This auction is for 5 items of rare bluegrass history, all pertaining to Bill Monroe and all in excellent condition. Included are:

(1) A napkin autographed by Bill at the Grand Opening Celebration of the Bill Monroe Bluegrass Hall of Fame & Museum on Music Valley Drive in Nashville, June 4, 1984;

(2) A picture of Bill about to autograph the very napkin included in this auction, but first sharing a bit of humor with a fan;

(3) A 3¾x8" flyer advertising the new museum (printed on both sides, the back gives the museum's location & a small map. T's a bit of residue at the top of the back side from having been pasted in a scrapbook but I think Goo Gone or a similar product would nicely remove it);

(4) An 8x10" flyer advertising the June 4, 1984 Fan Fair Bluegrass Show that starred Bill Monroe and included more than 20 other groups; and

(5) A souvenir ticket from Nov. 18, 1982, when Bill Monroe appeared at a Minnesota Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Association-sponsored show at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, MN.
