It’s with great pleasure we can finally offer the collecting community the FIRST CGC Graded example of this legendary poster to ever appear in any public auction! 


This original poster was created for the 1968 Northern California Folk Rock Festival in Santa Clara California. This annual event drew some of the biggest acts of the day. The festival featured Jefferson Airplane on Saturday and The Doors on Sunday. The use of the photogenic Jim Morrison as the central image, makes this a very striking and memorable design. The colors and lettering jump right off the paper! A cornerstone of any true 60’s vintage poster collection! 


Additional festival acts included Big Brother and the Holding Company featuring Janis Joplin, The Youngbloods, The Electric Flag, Kaleidoscope, Taj Mahal, and Ravi Shankar. Although not mentioned in the promotional material, the Grateful Dead also performed.


We have been waiting patiently for one of these posters to surface with CGC certification, and now the time has finally come! Way back in August 2011, a non-certified example in similar museum quality condition realized $1056 in our mega sale. It's no secret CGC Graded posters featuring The Doors, The Airplane and Janis Joplin continue to enjoy worldwide demand. The incredibly limited availability of museum quality material is far outweighed by the thousands of enthusiastic collectors in constant search of it! An amazing original first printing in superb museum quality condition!
