This poster is signed by three original members of Vanilla Fudge: Vince Martell  Carmine Appice and Mark Stein

 

Here we have the FIRST BAND SIGNED CGC Graded example of this Family Dog issue to appear in our auction and it's tied for the FINEST QUALITY original frist printing specimen we've offered! The FD-85 features Long Island's early psych band Vanilla Fudge. The group's original members recorded five albums together between 1967–69 before disbanding. When Led Zeppelin first toured the United States in early 1969 they opened for the Vanilla Fudge at some of their shows.

 

This poster is signed by lead guitarist / vocalist Vince Martell vocalist and organist Mark Stein and drummer and vocalist Carmine Appice! Last year a same graded 9.8 example brought $1020 in our auction but it was not signed by the original band members. This beautiful example here is unique and should really generate bidder attention.
