1968 BG-105 Jimi Hendrix Winterland Poster 5
Item Details
Description
From the Houston Freeburg Collection.

Original Pre-Concert FIRST Printing! Rick Griffin's masterpiece the "Flying Eyeball" BG-105 is considered by many collectors to be the most famous concert poster from the 1960s. This treasured museum piece represents what is arguably the best artwork ever rendered for a rock concert poster. This poster works on every level. It was created by the most inventive artist of the genre promoting the most striking musician of the era at the most famous venue of all!



The story behind the poster is that promoter Bill Graham dropped the ball the first time Hendrix played the Fillmore by placing the groundbreaking guitarist THIRD on the bill (BG-69). The next time Hendrix came around it was made clear to Graham by Hendrix management that he needed to make up for his previous lack of judgment. Of course, he went straight to Rick Griffin to create the best possible work of art. The rest is history.



The specimen offered here represents an extra special opportunity as it demonstrates the unique and superior advantages and VALUE of buying an INDEPENDENTLY and STRICTLY graded CGC specimen instead of "rolling the dice" with your hard-earned money based on the subjective opinion of what the seller (US!) claims it is. We sold a just slightly higher graded 6.5 last year for $13,800.
