We are proud to offer the collecting community the first CGC graded example of this amazing highly sought after Museum Piece! There is no more important number in ANY collectible market than the number 1 and the first of anything and everything is always at the top of any knowledgeable collector’s Want List. This is the very FIRST in the Family Dog series. It is known that just 250 posters were created along with a record low number of Handbills as well. This example is undamaged and free of any and all nicks tears fold pinholes or restoration. The only flaws we detect are a slight sign of handling and a few pinhead spots of toning. We have tracked just 2 un-restored examples of the “A” handbill over the past decade. One appeared in 2011 with tape on the corners and handling and brought $3176. The second in 2014   was a clean example similar to the one offered here which brought $3800.00  Because these early Family Dog Handbills are relatively easy to counterfeit the opportunity to acquire this example that has been independently authenticated and in superb condition should not be overlooked.

Estimate $3 000 to $5 000
