The digital images, created by Pop Culture, Inc., will be sold on the digital marketplace Quidd and will be available starting September 26 at 5 p.m. ET.

“We are excited about these magical collections, showcasing many photos that have never before been seen,” says Hayden Michael, CEO of POP Culture, Inc. “Our curator, Chris Vranian, has spent countless hours searching in old filing cabinets, most of which had not seen the light of day in half a century.”

And there will be more images to come. Future collections will feature photos of other famous rockers, including an October drop of “Helloween” photos of David BowieOzzy Osbourne and KISS. Bowie will also be the subject of a November 17 drop with photos taken around the release of his 1967 self-titled debut album.
