If you're new to collecting, this is the series to take a look at. Why? Because it is the largest in terms of the sheer number of posters and spans 1966-1971. Bill Graham started promoting concerts as early as 1965 and continued through mid-1971 when he shuttered the Fillmore auditoriums on both coasts. The series is numbered and runs from 1 thru 287, though many consider two additional posters to be part of the series bringing the total to 289. The early posters were printed on a vellum stock and eventually, the posters were produced with a glossy finish. This is the most widely collected and researched area of the market, so it’s a great place for new collectors to start.
