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

 

Presenting the FINEST QUALITY, CGC Graded 9.8 example of this Fillmore Poster to ever appear in our auction! When discussing the BG-8 created by the late great Wes Wilson, consider we have only handled this super rare, first printing poster a half-dozen times over the past decade.

 

It's no secret this issue seldom surfaces for sale in public auctions. Very few BG-8 posters were originally printed – well under 1,000 editions. Any BG-8's that exist are buried in long-term collections. Consequentially, we always have a mile long list of collectors eager to acquire this amazing poster.

 

The cherished BG-8 also features one of the most exciting lineups ever to appear at the Fillmore! How do you top Warhol, Zappa and Lou Reed? Last year, a lower graded 8.5 example of this poster sold for $6,000 and it wasn't signed. This high 9.8 graded specimen here exhibits a beautiful signature by the legendary artist, Wes Wilson. It quite literally doesn't get any better than this!
