Just in time to celebrate the 50 Year Anniversary of the most legendary music festival EVER! This large masterpiece is only the SECOND CGC Graded Yasgur’s Farm Woodstock Poster we've ever auctioned. Best of all, it's the FINEST QUALITY CONDITION gem we've had the pleasure of handling. Last year we began receiving larger sized posters certified by CGC, and we couldn’t be happier to share this new collectibles market breakthrough with you! New CGC authentication of posters like this is a game-changer!

 

The Woodstock Music and Arts Festival is legendary. It represented the peak of the 1960's music scene. In many ways, it also signified the end of the era. The poster for the event is iconic and deserves a place in EVERY collection! Woodstock was a notorious Grateful Dead performance. They were a band that rarely came through when faced with great expectation and hype. At Woodstock, they had to play during the rain and were getting shocked by a poorly grounded set up. As a result, Bob Weir was having a bad trip. It did not go well for the band that night. However the performances of many others, including Jimi Hendrix, CSNY, The Band and Janis Joplin have become permanently etched in stone as some of the finest live sets ever!

 

This poster is super clean and has no tears or pinholes! It's simply amazing this pre-concert printing example has remained in such fine shape all these years, as this issue is extremely rare and difficult to find undamaged due to its large size. In June 2018, a lower 8.0. graded example reached $1840 in our auction. This 9.2 piece, being the FINEST QUALITY condition example we've auctioned is sure to enjoy spirited bidding! In any other collectibles market, a 9.2 specimen would be worth MULTIPLES of an 8.0. It will be interesting to see what value the market attached to this Museum Quality specimen at this moment in time.
