We are thrilled to present only the second CGC Graded example of this legendary Original First Printing poster to appear in our auction! This is one of the most highly sought after and desirable Rolling Stones posters of all time and is featured in The Art of Rock plate # 4.273.


The stunning and famous design was created by Kate Burness. The Stones were due to play at Cardiff Castle in Wales on September of 1973 but the show was cancelled and most of the posters were reclaimed by the promoter. This thin paper poster is incredibly detailed and beautifully colored.


Rolling Stones posters are highly coveted by collectors because much like their arch rivals The Beatles Rolling Stones concerts quickly sold out and concert posters were rarely used for promotion. This is universally recognized as one of the most beautiful Stones posters ever created!


This PINHOLE FREE example has tape on the reverse and is VERY conservatively graded by CGC. The 7.5 grade is going to create a ridiculous bargain for some shrewd collector. 


Estimate: $2 000 - $4 000
