Here’s a near flawless example of a very difficult to find, original handbill with major historical importance. The BG-9 - designed by the late great Wes Wilson - is the FIRST appearance of the Grateful Dead on a Fillmore poster or handbill! In addition, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention are also on the bill. The Dead AND The Mothers! Early Grateful Dead handbills printed on very thin paper like this one, and in great condition like this one, are a challenge to locate. This is the FINEST QUALITY CGC Graded example we've auctioned of this handbill in over 13 years. There will be lots of bidding but just one lucky collector will be able to call this elusive piece of history their own!
