This poster is signed & doodled in pencil by the artist Stanley Mouse!


The FINEST QUALITY CGC GRADED CONDITION of this issue we've ever auctioned! AND SIGNED BY THE ARTIST! This powerful poster for a cancelled Howlin’ Wolf show at the Avalon features another classic Mouse/Kelley design. The FD-27 issue was only printed before the concerts (there are no reprints), which makes this poster especially desirable and valuable. The shows themselves were cancelled but this classic image has remained a popular and important collectible in the series. Another Top Quality CGC 9.8 graded example brought $6612 at auction in April, 2017. This lot exhibits a great opportunity to add this showstopper issue to your Family Dog collection!


Ever since our first auction, 13 years ago, PAE has banged the drum very hard for early, pre #30, Fillmore and Avalon material. This recommendation is STILL a cornerstone of our current 2020 Collector's Guide available FREE on our website. We feel stronger about the desirability of posters such as this, than we did when we first started recommending them 13 years ago!
