Item Details
Description
Our auction has unearthed a TRULY RARE original Family Dog flyer. It was a last-minute promotional item made on the fly for the FD-109 event. It is one of the RAREST Family Dog items that we've ever handled! This flyer and several other designs were quickly created on a mimeograph machine because of a production delay for the 109 cards. According to reports, the FD-109 card did not go out to the mailing list so this flier and the others were used for last-minute promotion. They were not mailed out but were posted and distributed to select drop-off points.

This find was unearthed from a larger lot that was sold in the Heritage Auctions August 2020 Entertainment Auction. This one was extracted from a larger grouping of the 109 alt flyers. The Heritage listing stated that the promotional item came from Family Dog Co. founder Bob Cohen's collection.

The piece is so scarce that until this auction, the flyer had eluded the detailed research of poster historian and cataloger, Eric King. Eric immediately picked up on our listing, having never seen a copy, and has since added the piece to his guide. The flyer now bears the cataloging # FD-680308K.

The piece is being offered raw, but after the hammer comes down it will be eligible for CGC grading as it will now have a catalog number. We have graded the piece conservatively as a PAE Near Mint 89 with only light handling. There is only one other confirmed surviving copy! An amazing trophy for the savvy speculator or Family Dog completist!
