Here we are offering the EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to locate, Original FIRST PRINTING of one of the most popular Rolling Stones posters of all time - Finally with CGC Grading - and for the FIRST TIME in our auction! Another milestone includes the simply incredible, MUSEUM QUALITY Condition of this diamond in the rough. Collectors have waited patiently for years to finally see the pre-concert first printing of this issue surface in such amazing shape, like this example here.


The Stones hit tune “Tumbling Dice”, serves as the inspiration for this killer design from Fillmore artist David Singer. This large format poster is considered the last poster in the BG numbered series. The 1972 Rolling Stones tour was one of the Bands most celebrated and well documented tours in their long and storied history. The tour started on the heels of the release of the band's seminal recording “Exile on Main Street”. The Exile album is considered by many fans to be the group's finest. 


The fact is, we've only auctioned one other example of the OP-1 over the past 13 years, and it was mounted on board. More importantly, it was not authenticated and certified by CGC like this specimen here. Without a doubt, this lot is in a different universe by comparison. High grade CGC material has never been hotter in this marketplace than it is right now. The BG-289 always has and always be one of the most popular images from 1960's concert poster art. When you factor in Superb Museum Quality Condition with no visible flaws of any kind, it sets this relic above the rest. A Blue Chip acquisition that would be the highlight of even the finest collection!
