We are offering the collecting community the FIRST CGC Graded example of this historic handbill to ever appear in our auction! 


Coverage of Marty Balin's sad passing 2 years ago spurred worldwide interest in Jefferson Airplane The Matrix and Balin's role with both. Balin co-founded the Airplane. He got a group of investors together to open the Matrix so San Francisco bands playing psychedelic music would have a dedicated performance space to call their own. Balin gave the investors a 75% interest in the club while keeping a 25% interest for himself in return for managing the club.


The Matrix is an incredibly important venue as it was San Francisco’s first folk club EVER. The Matrix opened in August 1965 and was a tiny venue holding just over 100 concert-goers. It's no secret that Jefferson Airplane enjoys a collector following. This is a very historical very rare and very collectible specimen from a golden era. 100% Original with no restoration!
