This is only the second TOP QUALITY, CGC 9.8 graded example of the elusive FD-34 original poster we've ever auctioned. It's an early 13th Floors Elevators poster created by a seldom used Family Dog Artist, Steve Renick. The incorporation of the "eye in the triangle", perched atop a pyramid, with radiating rays, was artist Steve Renick's early Masonic reference, which appeared a few months prior to Rick Griffin's use of the symbol. In February 2018, another pristine 9.8 graded example reached a record breaking high water mark of $2082 in our auction.

News spread quickly two years ago about the sad passing of Roky Erickson at age 71, which has already spurred a massive interest in concert material for collectors and fans alike. Texas native Roger Kynard, "Roky" Erickson was a founding member of The 13th Floor Elevators and a pioneer of the psychedelic rock genre. The group was a major innovator of '60s Rock & the San Francisco Sound.
