This poster is signed in pencil by the artist Wes Wilson!


Here’s an opportunity to acquire “the best of the best” in one of THE hottest areas of the market, early Bill Graham Fillmore posters. In addition to basically un-improvable quality, this is tied for the finest quality CGC graded example we have ever offered at public auction.  

This poster has extreme historical importance as Lenny Bruce’s last performance ever.


This poster is tied for the highest CGC graded example to ever appear in our auction and the first CGC graded BG 13 to appear in our auction in ANY grade in over a year.  Previously, a CGC graded 9.6 example was auctioned off by us for $3462 in December 2016, and it was not signed. Of course, the market demand and appreciation for super high quality museum pieces such as this have grown dramatically in the past 2-3 years, as has the demand for SIGNED CGC graded examples. We have every reason to believe that this trend will continue!


Lenny Bruce was a significant 1960's figure and this fact alone makes this poster historically important. As mentioned before, this is a poster for Bruce's very last live appearance! Also on the bill was Frank Zappa's Mothers, what a night to behold. This is one of the most "in demand" Fillmore posters that is immediately snapped up whenever it hits the market. This lot offers a problem free example that is void of any restoration! Exciting bidding awaits!
