Here’s a poster that is on the top of every Want List. Every collector wants it and it’s next to impossible to find in ANY condition. Why? Because this poster has it all. Unsurpassed rarity AND historical importance! This is the very FIRST poster in the Bill Graham Fillmore Series and just 150 posters were produced with the Artist’s Peter Bailey credit on it. Our best guess is that 10-15 examples exist today in ANY condition over 50 years later.

This example is SUPERB has been off the market for over 35 years   and has been  graded extremely conservatively. It could just have easily been graded 8.5 and we believe it should be. Why? Because this poster has no pinholes nicks cuts tears folds of ANY kind. It is 100% totally original with NO RESTORATION! The colors are bold and 100% complete. Totally fresh. The only flaw is prior evidence of tape on each of the 4 corners that has since been removed. That’s it! Please keep clicking on the image and magnifying glass in the upper right corner of the image to get a super sized close up of every millimeter of this incredible specimen!

Our auction tracking shows just 6 prior auction appearances in the past 10 years. Two of the posters brought below market prices because they were restored. One restored copy brought $5115 on 5/9/13 and the other restored copy brought $4025 on 9/25/14. A thrashed original copy with major damage but no restoration brought $4620 way back on 4/6/08. A wonderful original copy with no restoration and one tack hole in each corner brought $9084 on 9/6/12 and another lovely copy similiar to the one offered here that was totally original with clean paper (no holes cuts tears etc) and some edge wear brought $13 218 on 2/16/12. The finest known copy of this issue graded 9.4 by CGC brought $16 215 on 6/16/16. We are pleased to offer this true museum piece that is guaranteed to make one lucky collector very very happy!
