This lot includes a Signed Letter of Authenticity by Jay Thelin, proprietor of The Psychedelic Shop! The short lived but historic shop closed in October 1967. The poster once graced the walls of the shop and has been in Jay Thelin's possession since. 

 

This poster was designed by the late great Wes Wilson for a performance of the Beard at the Fillmore. The Beard was a play by beat playwright Michael McClure and it’s a true gem from the era. Although not a musical event, The Beard was a perfect illustration of how inspired young artists pushed the envelope and created a new culture.

The main thing that separates these posters from commercially produced collectibles like baseball cards, is their TRUE historical importance and value. Michael McClure was one of our nations most famous and cherished Beat Poets. His sad passing happened just last year. Proof of McClure's worldwide impact was the INTENSE MULTIMEDIA COVERAGE of his death appeared EVERYWHERE.
