This original handbill is signed and doodled in pencil by the artist Stanley Mouse!


The FD-26 is one of the undeniable stars of the 1960’s concert materials genre, and its place in history is well known. This classic Mouse/Kelley design has survived the test of time and is easily one of the most recognized images in all of Rock. Posters in this shape are worth tens of thousands. An Original First Printing of this poster sold two years ago for $118,750 in another public auction!

This Skeleton & Roses Original Handbill offers you the opportunity to own the same famous art for far less. A similar CGC Graded example previously reached $2520 in our auction and it wasn't signed. And since this example is SIGNED, it is sure to enjoy spirited bidding from collectors across the globe.
