Here's one of the "Holy Grails" in the entire 1960's concert poster market! And we're proud to offer the very first CGC graded example to ever appear at public auction. The BG-74 is ultra rare and highly sought after. Rarity wise,  it is on par with the BG-2, and like the BG-2, high grade, unrestored examples such as this routinely bring well over $10,000 at auction. We sold a CGC graded 9.8 privately for $45,000.00

The BG-74 is somewhat unique in that a large percentage of the small number of surviving examples have been restored. Often, this restoration is hard to detect, making independent CGC authentication and grading particularly valuable. If you want the definition of a  "blue chip concert poster", this would be it. Great bands, great art, extreme rarity and legendary status!
