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. Very few have survived in this state of preservation and demand far outstrips the available supply. 

We sold a spectacular double signed examle of this poster that was signed by both Mouse and Kelley that was CGC graded 9.6 for $4899 on 1/8/17 a record for the issue. Mouse is still available for signing this example is already signbed by the late great Alton Kelley. This piece will be much more affordable!
