Presenting the FIRST CGC Graded specimen of this ULTRA RARE Yardbirds issue to appear in our auction! This original, 54 year old Yardbirds poster features a fabulous headlining design by Don Ryder and was promoted by the legendary Bill Quarry!

 

Jimmy Page & The Yardbirds appeared at the Carousel Ballroom on August 25th, and the San Leandro Rollarena on August 26th, 1966. During this era, The Yardbirds were in top form with both Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page in the band. However, this issue is VERY UNIQUE because both musicians did not perform together at these two shows. 

 

The August 25th show at the Carousel was the FIRST CONCERT Jimmy Page appeared live with the band on ELECTRIC GUITAR! Previously, Page was playing bass with the group. Jeff Beck got sick and was hospitalized in San Francisco before the concert. Page took over as lead guitarist on August 25th and Chris Dreja switched to bass. Beck stayed in San Francisco to recuperate with his girlfriend Mary Hughes, while the rest of the band played the remaining shows of the tour. After the Yardbirds reunited in London, Chris Dreja stayed on bass and the group's double lead guitar spotlight of Page & Beck was created! 

 

Very few examples of this rare, original poster have appeared in public auctions over the years, and none of them had world class, third party certification!
