Smokey the Bear says “SMOKE” !The FD 16 is one of the most popular concert posters ever created by two of the most legendary artists of all time Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley.  Here the duo’s take on another icon of popular culture. Just 1000 posters were originally produced and this example is just the third Mint Condition specimen to appear at public auction in the past 10 years! This example has been DOUBLE SIGNED by the artists Stanley Mouse and the late Alton Kelley.

Close inspection under high magnification reveals a 1/8 inch corner bump in the bottom right corner and “5” has been written in pencil on the back. (Perhaps the seller back in 1966 wanted $5.00 for this poster?)The two previous auction appearances are a unsigned CGC graded 9.4 example that brought $1905 on 9/1/16 and a Double Signed Mint Condition example with no CGC grading brought $2887.00 on 6/19/14.

This poster has been signed by the artists Stanley Mouse and the late Alton Kelley.
