We’re the old kids on the block. We realized that rock and entertainment memorabilia would be a big thing before practically anyone else.
Since 1974 we’ve been collecting ,selling rock ‘n’ roll and entertainment memorabilia , collectibles, rare character , advertising toys, Retro ,and popular culture items, too.
Beginning in 1975, and continuing until 1986, we promoted a series of Rock Music Collector’s Conventions “Rockages“, featuring rare films, concerts and a dealer’s room for selling memorabilia that are now legendary
New York’s Rock and Roll Film Festival then went on to producing “Walk Thru Rock National Exhibit” with Pepsi and the ROCKBILL MEMORABILIA Rockshow traveling Road show.
Our Rock Relics Catalogs were the first to offer memorabilia exclusively
Check out celebrity, clips and some of our Rockages history on Facebook, Its Only Rock N Roll or see memories at Zaknation, with Marc appraising and authenticating memorabilia on MSNBC,FOX,FOX & FRIENDS,OXYGEN NETWORK,CNN,METRO ROAD SHOW,GOOD MORNING AMERICA as an expert.
During the 1980’s we owned and operated the infamous store, It’s Only Rock n Roll Gift Shoppe in New York City’s Greenwich Village.
The late great rock poster artist and ZAP Comic alumni, Rick Griffin, designed our It’s Only Rock n Roll King Kong logo.
We produced three Rock on Video auctions in the days way before eBay
We published an It’s Only Rock n Roll Catalog, from which many items were featured in national mail order catalogs such as Sony-Time Warner, Vroom, Doritos and on TV’s QVC.
