PAE is pleased to present the very FIRST CGC graded specimen of this poster to EVER appear at public auction!


This poster represents the very FIRST ISSUE of the New Fillmore numbered series beginning in 1988! The NR-1 features Hot Tuna with Papa John Creach. The Country Blues/Rock phenomenon Hot Tuna has been in existence for the last 45+ years and is still going strong! The Duo of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have long out lived the Jefferson Airplane. 


There is one number in collectibles that is instantly more sought after and valuable than any other number and that is the number ONE. ONE as in FIRST!! The first corvette the first Batman comic the first U.S. coin are all immediately recognizable due to the HISTORIC IMPORTANCE of the collectible in question. Anybody and everybody can understand THE FIRST and therefore THE FIRST of everything has an intrinsic desirability to people inside AND outside a collectible market.
