Two of the most sought after Fillmore posters in the series are the BG 109 and BG 110. These back-to-back posters announced consecutive weekends of the power trio “Cream” in San Francisco in. Lee Conklin created BG- 109 and Stanley Mouse did the BG-110. Both posters used the same publicity photo of the band as inspiration but the artist’s individual styles delivered two strikingly contrasting images of the band.

The band was at the height of their game at the time of the shows. Having formed in 1966 the band met with critical acclaim. However after a couple of years of heavy touring the band became strained by internal conflict between Baker and Bruce. They would close down shop by the end of 1968.

These posters seldom come up for sale (especially the BG-110) no less in top condition. In this sale we are fortunate to be able to offer high-grade copies of both of these Fillmore classics!

This lot features Lee Conklin’s take. This copy is in brilliant shape with only a tape pull keeping it from Mint status.
