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. 

 

Only the 5th CGC Graded example of the BG-26 OP-1 FIRST PRINTING poster we've ever auctioned over 13 years! This Jefferson Airplane & Grateful Dead issue is a favorite among collectors, and can be extremely difficult to find.

The BG-26 is also another creative leap forward for the work of the late great Wes Wilson. This image represents the first time that the artist would incorporate a nude figure into his Fillmore poster art. This would be a reoccurring theme in Wilson's work for the remainder of the time he was enlisted by Bill Graham.

Wes Wilson's passing last year made international news due to the worldwide appreciation of his artistic output. Posters created by the artist like this early Bill Graham issue will always enjoy a growing level of demand as our hobby continues to mature.
