(FD-14) Big Brother and The Holding Company, Avalon Ballroom *Mint Condition* SIGNED !


    Psychedelic Art Exchange is offering of one of the most iconic and celebrated concert posters of the 1960s… the famous FD14 “Zig-Zag Man” which advertises a pair of concerts by Big Brother and The Holding Company and Quicksilver Messenger Service that took place at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, California on June 24-25, 1966. This show is  the first performance of Big Brother that would showcase their new lead singer, Janis Joplin.

    This poster is as bright and crisp as the day it was printed and grades Mint 97 according to the very strict grading standards of the Psychedelic Art Exchange. (Please visit Psychedelic Art Exchange for a full description of their Official Grading Standards).

    This poster, along with the FD26 and the BG105 is universally considered one of the most iconic poster images of the 1960s. The poster represents the very first time that the legendary poster artists Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley worked together at Mouse Studios! The poster features wonderful signatures from both artists, rendered in black ink in the lower right corner.

    The popularity of this poster is so extreme that it was immediately put up on walls everywhere in the Haight. It was reprinted right away and was also the first poster to be counterfeited. It is next to impossible to find an undamaged copy of this poster. This is the only copy we know of in this condition.
