This poster is signed by the artist the late great Wes Wilson!
The third printing poster of FD-4 you see here should be available for far less than an Original First Printing would command. The Dirty Old Man is a favorite among collectors and it paved the way for artist Wes Wilson to become the father of psychedelic art. The Original First Printings of this poster in the condition offered here can bring several thousand of dollars. This reprint represents a more affordable way to acquire this fantastic and world famous work of art!
Wes Wilson's recent passing made international news due to the worldwide appreciation of his artistic output. Check out this article to learn more. SIGNED posters like this early Family Dog issue will always enjoy a growing level of demand as our hobby continues to mature.
Please note: There were 2 printings of this poster (OP-1 and OP-2 ) produced before the event. This example here is the Second Official Reprint of this issue (RP-5). The "RP-5" numbering code on the CGC slab is slightly mis-leading as this is technically the second reprint and NOT the 5th reprint as the code would suggest.
