An incredible example of the original first printing BG-27 poster, the FIRST AND HIGHEST 9.8 CGC GRADED we have ever auctioned of this issue! The Mothers of Invention were a groundbreaking musical force in the 1960s. Frank Zappa the founder of the Mothers was a true musical innovator and a larger-than-life public figure. Zappa is one of those artists with worldwide appeal and this poster is one of our most requested pieces. This Original First Printing was designed by John Myers.


In May 2021, a lower 9.6 CGC graded example reached a staggering $9,600.00 in our auction! Early Fillmore posters are amongst the most desirable ever produced and always enjoy top demand with collectors. Since the inception of PAE we have consistently advised collectors to focus on the first 30 issues of the Bill Graham series. History has proved our advice was correct then and we are sticking with it now!
