This printer's proof poster is signed by the artist Colleen Cannon! This lot also includes the original Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist on 6/15/2020!

 

We're presenting for the FIRST TIME in our auction an extremely rare PRINTER'S PROOF poster produced for Bob Marley at the Greek Theater in 1978, and signed by the artist! Very few of these proof posters were given to the artist during production before the concert. The band of discoloration across the lower half of the proof is from the printing process and acknowledged on the included Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the artist on 6/15/2020. The poster and the COA are BOTH SIGNED by Colleen Cannon!

 

When it comes to important historical reggae figures, there is Bob Marley in a league of his own, then everyone else. Market observers have commented about how strong Marley material has been in our auctions the past 2 years. This is one of the most popular Bob Marley posters ever created, and the very first printer's proof example to ever appear in our auction! Do not let this golden opportunity with incredible, unbeatable provenance directly from the artist pass you by!
