This lot represents the FIRST CGC GRADED SIGNATURE SERIES EXAMPLE of this scarce First Printing issue to appear in our auction and it is in AMAZING condition! The late great Bonnie MacLean designed this beautiful poster featuring The Who at the Fillmore in 1967. Without a doubt one of the most requested issues of the Bill Graham numbered series. This is one of those pieces everyone wants but very few have.

The elusive nature of this poster makes perfect sense especially when one considers there were NO REPRINTS of this issue produced until after 2010. Therefore only the original 1967 Pre-Concert First Printings like this one have survived all these years and when they do surface once every blue moon they are often extremely damaged.

We previously auctioned another 9.4 graded example for $2 760 but it was not signed like this one here is! Clearly one of the Fillmore set-breakers this lot is sure to attract serious collectors looking to fill that gap in their original printing collections. Get in line. Folks have been waiting years for this poster to surface in this high quality condition and SIGNED by the artist in a special CGC SIGNATURE SERIES holder!
