This poster has been professionally restored to offer the appearance and eye appeal of a mint copy! Restoration includes Color Touch.


From the Houston Freeburg Collection.


The beautiful FD-43 Mouse and Kelley-designed specimen you see here is the ultra-desirable OP-1 original printing version! The OP-1 is the only FIRST pre-concert printing with the Double-H Press credit at the bottom, and more importantly, the only printing that fluoresces under a black light.

Experienced collectors know that the elusive OP-1 First Printing is the most scarce and difficult-to-locate issues of the FD-43. This classic image of sexy silent movie starlet Alla Nazimova is another that transcends time and trends. This poster is an often-overlooked gem in the series. The bottom contains an announcement for the Human Be-in, the seminal event of the era!
