This beautiful Artist's Proof poster is signed in pencil by the artist Frank Kozik!

 

Artist Frank Kozik got his start gaining popularity for designing posters for bands like the Bad Livers around the Austin area. In 1993 he produced one of his greatest posters for two of the most treasured names in rock, Neil Young and Pearl Jam. It is nicknamed "High Bear" for the name of the Indian portrait exhibited on the poster. It promotes two September dates at The Gorge and Portland Meadows.

 

Neil Young performed with Booker T. and the MGs, who served as the house band on Stax Records' legendary 60s Otis Redding recordings. Up and coming Blind Melon were also on the bill. Collectors have been digging deep into Pearl Jam posters in recent years and this ARTIST'S PROOF limited edition gem is SIGNED by the artist! Not to mention it is in lovely museum quality condition!

 

This is the FIRST PROOF example of this issue we've ever auctioned. Two years ago, a limited edition example numbered 52/500 in similar condition reached $1840 in our auction. Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot!
