Presenting the FINEST QUALITY CGC Graded 9.8 example of this Fillmore Poster to ever appear in our auction! When discussing the BG-8 created by the late great Wes Wilson consider we have only handled this super rare  first printing poster a half-dozen times over the past decade.


It's no secret this issue seldom surfaces for sale in public auctions. Very few BG-8 posters were originally printed – well under 1 000 editions. Any BG-8's that exist are buried in long-term collections. Consequentially we always have a mile long list of collectors eager to acquire this amazing poster.


The cherished BG-8 also features one of the most exciting lineups ever to appear at the Fillmore! How do you top Warhol Zappa and Lou Reed? Last year a lower graded 8.5 example of this poster sold for $6 000 and it wasn't signed. This high 9.8 graded specimen here exhibits a beautiful signature by the legendary artist Wes Wilson. It quite literally doesn't get any better than this!
