This poster is signed by the artist, the late great Wes Wilson!

Here we have a super early BG poster featuring an All-Star list of San Francisco’s legendary bands of the era, including the very young Grateful Dead and Big Brother. This piece is tied for the FINEST QUALITY CGC Graded example of this issue we have ever offered!

It goes without saying very few of these early Fillmore posters have survived the test of time, in ANY condition, and therefore they are always being hunted by collectors around the globe. We have only offered CGC Graded examples of this rare original poster a handful of times now, and this one is in top, superb museum quality condition! In September 2016, a same 9.8 graded example realized $1622 in our auction, and it wasn't SIGNED like this one!
