We couldn't be more thrilled to offer the collecting community the FINEST QUALITY CONDITION CGC Graded example of this ultra rare handbill to appear at public auction!

 

The BG-74 is THE KEY to the Bill Graham Fillmore series and posters of this event have traded for up to $45,000.

 

As rare and desirable as the poster is, the handbill is even rarer and features the same exact art as the poster!

 

In addition, the reverse of this handbill features a review that appeared in Time Magazine about 4 weeks prior to the show. 

 

The interest and collector demand for concert handbills has skyrocketed in the past 12 months. This is due to CGC bringing much needed integrity to an area of the marketplace that was easily counterfeited. You can read more about this in detail here.

 

When you consider that there are literally hundreds of collectors building Bill Graham sets, and just a tiny handful of this handbill have appeared at auction in ANY condition, it's easy to understand that this lot is extremely undervalued at current market levels. 

 

Last year, a lower 9.2 graded CGC example sold in our auction for $7800. That can be seen here.

 

If you read the blog linked above, you'll clearly understand why CGC grading of this rarity is an absolute must! 

 

Please note: Despite the high grade, this handbill is very conservatively graded by CGC. See details below.
