Wow! This poster is TIED for the FINEST QUALITY CGC Graded Example of this issue to appear in our auction! And what an example it is! Superb in all respects with NO visible flaws of any kind.

This early, classic image was designed by legendary artist Gary Grimshaw. This show was promoted by Russ Gibb, the man behind the Grande Ballroom, who was considered the Midwest’s greatest rock concert promoter. This poster features a great photo of The Who circa 1965.

This piece has it all, great art, legendary band, early date, museum quality condition and third party CGC grading and authentication. A piece that is sure to increase in desirability with each passing year, this poster epitomizes why collectors are now pouring into this market.

While CGC graded concert posters ARE commanding VERY SIGNIFICANT premiums compared to non CGC material, the premiums have not yet reached what is considered "standard" in every other collectible. This situation is changing by the moment and is why many experienced collectors now believe CGC graded concert posters represent the most lucrative collectible opportunity in the world today!

This is tied with one other specimen we auctioned that was graded 9.6 by CGC. That realized $8062 almost three years in February 2018!
