Good question, KMFrye54. Also, a good point made about the Ovation picks starting out the same way as the picks you obtained at NAMM shows. (You have a nice collection of your own!)
Jay, perhaps you could ask around about the Ovation guitar pick?
Just a guess, I don't believe this pick is an artist pick. I can't see Glen using this pick or giving out marketing picks for Ovation with his name on the picks.
I am guessing Ovation manufactured these picks after Glen's rise to stardom on the Goodtime Hour. Ovation followed his fame with a pick promo for the Ovation guitar "as played by Glen Campbell".
Were there NAMM-like events in the late sixties, early seventies?
Perhaps Ovation distributed these picks to guitar dealers to hand out?
Remember the post in this forum about Glen's pick holder? The holder was fastened to the body of one of his guitars played in the early seventies at concerts. This holder suggests to me that Glen used a personal pick.
Very nice, jay -- a Rick Nelson with Cheap Trick pick!
It must have been great fun when you were young to shop for a guitar pick.
--Dee (who is still searching the attic and the basement for her long-lost Glen Campbell fan club pick...it was red with Glen's name on it....I had purchased it from the official fan club in Hollywood, not because I played guitar but because it was the only item in the merch inventory that I could afford at the time...it probably sold for 50 cents.)
