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 or so over the past decade.

 

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, another similar graded example of this poster sold for $6,000. To learn more about the BG-8, take a look at this recent VIDEO we created with GoCollect!
