Welcome to the A Fleeting Glimpse Collectors Hub.
Designed in collaboration with the Pink Floyd Collectors social media group to showcase a glimpse of the various ticket stubs, posters, adverts, promotional displays, t-shirts, and other memorabilia that has been accumulated by the fans since the band’s inception in 1964.
With extensive galleries covering almost 60 years, we have very carefully organized all material into the relevant categories to make it easy to navigate. Simply click on one of the categories below to view our extensive contributions. You can also enlarge the images by simply clicking on them.
Please Note : This section only features material that has been officially licensed and released to support the band. While there are many different forms of bootleg items circulating, this is something that we will not be showcasing in order to respect and honor the band as a collective.
” There are many types of Pink Floyd collector. Some buy every studio, live, compilation and solo album on CD, and then stop there, content with their small but perfectly formed, hi-fidelity shrine. Others take it a step further, and amass a drawer of t-shirts, ranging from Primark crop-tops to authentic 1970s original concert t-shirts they’ve frantically bid on at 3am on eBay.
Then there are the Floyd collectors who devour shelves of books and stacks of magazines, scouring each page for miniscule details that might give them some insight into their elusive heroes. Others wallpaper their house with concert posters old and new. Some arrange ticket stubs of the dozens of gigs they’ve attended in an aesthetically pleasing way. Many fall down the rabbit hole of vinyl, and find themselves staring at a battered Mexican pressing of Dark Side of the Moon in an overpriced record store and thinking to themselves, “Yes, I need another copy of an album I already own 84 copies of, in eight different formats.” That’s part of the sheer joy of being a Pink Floyd collector. It can go as far as you want it to go, in whatever direction you want to take it. It may culminate in a pair of Wish You Were Here socks, or in the Pink Floyd branded VW Golf. It might even end with David Gilmour’s Black Strat hanging on your bedroom wall.
A Fleeting Glimpse is proud to present their ongoing collaboration with Pink Floyd Collectors Facebook group. Feast your eyes on a cornucopia of Pink Floyd goodies that will showcase the far reaches of uber-nerd collecting!
Delve deep in to the peculiar and beautiful artefacts that have been amassed for your viewing pleasure! And wonder to yourself, “Whose idea was it to release a promotional Dark Side of the Moon cherry flavoured lollipop and where can I buy one? ” – Natalie Lyons (Long Serving AFG Associate)
“ We are very grateful for the help of the Pink Floyd Collectors social media group with this exhibit. With extensive galleries combining various materials from 1967 to the present day, we hope that many of our visitors will appreciate seeing the items that the passionate fans have accumulated over the years. By no means is this exhibit definitive, as the amount of material in the public domain is endless, but we certainly have one of the biggest showcases, and hopefully, with the wonders of technology, this is something we can keep updating on a regular basis for years to come.” – Liam Creedon (AFG Former Site Director)
” We are so grateful to Liam and the ‘Fleeting Glimpse‘ community for inviting us to participate. Our remit has always been to share and accept contributions from others who share our same passion for collecting. To organize everything into one place and make it easy to navigate seemed impossible to us, but with hard work and innovation, Liam has more than achieved this. We look forward to seeing the hub grow as more memorabilia becomes available. ” – Philip Waters (Founder Of Pink Floyd Collectors Group)
10th August 2023 This one was posted on our sister site Brain-Damage and we thought we would share Danilo Steffanina’s amazing and rare Pink Floyd poster collection with you all here!
Pink Floyd book author and friend of Brain Damage, Ian Priston, recently visited an Italian collector (one of the “Lunatics”, a group of collectors in that country) to check out his extensive collection of rare Pink Floyd posters. Danilo Steffanina was happy to share his passion in conserving these items, and so let’s start the weekend in a slightly different way to normal, and have a wander through his collection via Ian’s video and discussion of the artwork which drew people to Pink Floyd gigs
