We couldn't be more pleased to offer this CGC graded handbill for the FIRST TIME in our auction! And what a beauty she is! Clocking in at a magnificent 9.9 (Wow!) GRADE this original Wes Wilson specimen is sure to catch everyones attention. Early Fillmore handbills are amongst the most desirable items ever issued and this piece is sure to enjoy spirited bidding from collectors looking to add an early 1966 handbill to their collection at a very reasonable price point.
The experienced collectors we talk to are 100% convinced that handbills that have somehow miraculously earned a 9.9 or 10.0 grade from CGC are exceedingly undervalued at current market levels. Their reasoning is simple but firmly grounded in reality. In every other certified collectibles marketplace it’s COMMONPLACE for the absolute “Best of the Best” to command premiums of 10x 20x or even 50x the next grade down. These types of premiums are universal and longstanding in regards to the values of rare coins comic books baseball cards paper money postage stamps etc. Because independent authentication and grading of concert handbills is still in it’s early days premiums have not yet approached these types of levels. But make no mistake premiums ARE growing as collectors from other fields are flowing into the marketplace and snapping up what they consider to be MASSIVE bargains. We first discussed this opportunity in our blog dated 8/19/16 and recently updated it on 6/18/18. We highly recommend you read each blog carefully if you are interested in participating in this exciting segment of the marketplace.
