This is the first CGC graded example of this original postcard to appear in our auction! This highly sought after masterpiece by artist Lee Conklin is one of the most requested and well-known specimens in the Fillmore series. This stunning black and white illustration exemplifies the artists’ style of hidden and flowing images. The art was so powerful that Santana had the piece reworked for their first album cover. This image is one of the most used examples of 1960’s art in volumes chronicling the genre. Pristine original postcards from the Fillmore and Avalon are increasingly harder to uncover in top condition. These gems are beginning to explode in value. NOW is the time to pick them up before they evaporate from public sale!
