We're pleased to offer the collecting community the very FIRST CGC Graded example of this Original CARDBOARD Peace Rock poster to ever appear in our auction. This is the FIRST PEACE ROCK event held at the Fillmore!


What makes this cardboard piece IMPORTANT is it exhibits the original lineup including The Grateful Dead and Mystery Trend two bands who both cancelled and were replaced later by The Great Society and Big Brother! Peter Bailey did the calligraphy on this piece. 


Many collectors believe that posters graded 8.5 by CGC represent the best value in the marketplace today. See our blog dated 1/31/18 to learn why demand is currently skyrocketing.
