What a perfect way to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of Woodstock! We have been waiting a long time to finally be able to offer the collecting community this amazing ORIGINAL HANDBILL with CGC certification for the FIRST TIME!


The Woodstock Music and Arts Fair is easily the most famous musical/cultural event of the 1960’s. The festival was originally intended to be held in Wallkill, New York. Permits, however, were denied and the festival promoters had to find a new location just a month prior to the festival. The festival was then moved to Bethel ,NY. The rest is history. The event represented the peak of the 1960's music scene. In many ways, it also signified the end of the era. 


The original, pre-concert first printing handbill being offered here was designed for the original site by Fillmore East poster artist, David Byrd. It is much harder to track down than the other popular woodstock fest handbills and material. The fact that this piece is certified by CGC places it into a whole other dimension! Beat-up, toned out, and creased non-CGC examples have appeared in past auctions. This piece is in a different world by comparison.


This year is the 50th anniversary of this historic event. We can expect for the whole world to have a case of “Sixties Mania”, that is sure to influence the sights, sounds and fashions of 2019. We urge you to read our new blog dated 8/24/18 to understand why these landmark anniversaries have a HUGE effect on the vintage material collecting marketplace we live and breathe everyday!


This stunning, 9.8 Museum Quality example is bright and fresh, with sharp corners and fantastic eye appeal. With the growth rate of authenticated material continuing to increase, this gem is bound to become even more desirable with each passing year. It exhibits all the attributes collectors are looking for in a blue chip piece!
