This poster is signed in blue ink by the artist Robert E. Brown!
Here's a great looking poster from the Terrace Ballroom which offers tremendous value for such a rarity. Artist Robert Brown did illustration work in YELLOW DOG COMICS #15 underground comix strip and several items for PROMETHEAN ENTERPRISES (An underground comic fanzine that featured the work of R. Crumb Rick Griffin Victor Moscoso Robert Williams Spain Rodriguez Rick Shubb Bob Zoell and others). He is also noted for authoring & illustrating the incredible "Dragon World" full color children's book in 2005 featuring 68 paintings of unique Dragons of all sorts.
The company that promoted this Terrace concert was later told by Disney Productions to "cease & desist" from using the unmistakable likeness of Mickey Mouse on their posters & promotions such as this one. There were only 1 000 copies of this original poster printed in the one & only print run prior to the July 18th concert date in 1970 which makes them extremely hard to find these days in ANY condition.
A similar example realized $299 in our auction on April 19th 2018 and this one here is SIGNED by the artist! More and more collectors are coming into the fold with the knowledge that artist signatures add a whole other dimension to their treasures. Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot!
