This is the FIRST and ONLY example to appear at public auction with CGC grading and authentication! 

To understand the desirability of this poster is to understand the opportunity that this whole genre offers.  This MAGNIFICENT RARITY was issued in well under 500 pieces, and very few still survive today in ANY condition.

This example is in EXCELLENT condition, with great eye appeal.  The paper is fully intact, with no nicks, cuts or tears along the edges. The poster is also 100% ORIGINAL with no restoration, a rarity for this issue. There are multiple pinholes in each corner, and there is a 6 inch tape pull on the back, along the bottom edge.

Given that PAE has dozens of clients endeavoring to build early BG and FD sets, we anticipate unprecedented competition for the opportunity to add this masterpiece to one’s collection. Clearly, this is one example where collector demand far exceeds the tiny, almost impossible to locate supply. This famous design is coveted the world over and is sure to be the highlight of whichever collection in which it resides!
