Here we have one of the most popular pieces of artwork promoting one of history's most beloved bands. Original handbills from the early days of the Avalon are increasingly harder to uncover in good condition. This material is beginning to explode in value. NOW is the time to pick up these relics before they evaporate from public sale! Many collectors believe that handbills graded 8.5 by CGC represent the best value in the marketplace today. Read our blog dated 1/31/18 to learn why demand is currently skyrocketing.
