We’ve got good news for the KISS Army — one of the largest private KISS collections has gone up for sale and it is full of one-of-a-kind artifacts for every kind of fan and collector. Headlining the sale is Ace Frehley’s iconic silver “UFO” guitar, which would shoot lights and smoke night after night during KISS concerts as well as Frehley solo performances well after the Farewell Tour. With an estimate of $200,000, this sale is almost assuredly going to be one for the KISS-story books.
As a band, KISS has always capitalized on getting closer to the fans with merchandise, autographs, and memorabilia. For decades, one fan has taken this to another level by collecting the largest Frehley collection outside of Ace himself. From signed albums and ultra-rare rare collectibles to personally owned items, this collection has a piece of everything.
Some of the rare and unusual pieces offered in the collection are Ace Frehley’s 1973-74 New York City Taxi Cab Driver’s License, Peter Criss’ 1970 Twice Signed Dual U.S. Passport with his wife Lydia, and a fully signed 1973 first-ever songwriter’s contract signed with Bill Aucoin. With starting bids ranging from $50 to $100,000, there is truly something for everyone. There are countless “holy grail” pieces, but perhaps none quite as important as the 1973 Bell Sound Studios Acetate for KISS’ debut album with the original version of the track listing.
