We are pleased to be able to offer what must be considered one of the most important and desirable Jefferson Airplane concert posters ever created! This is the very FIRST poster in the numbered Bill Graham Fillmore Series and the example you see here has been preserved in magnificent MUSEUM quality condition. We know that 500 examples of this first printing poster were originally produced - 150 of the OP-1 version, and 350 of the OP-2 version offered here (without the Peter Bailey credit). 


Clearly the lucky new owner of this poster will take immense joy in owning this legendary piece and this satisfaction is sure to grow with each passing year. The yellows and reds are as bright and fresh as the day they were laid down on paper, and each corner is razor sharp. It's virtually identical to another graded 9.8 example of this poster that realized $8062.00 in our February 2017 CGC auction.
