    RICK GRIFFIN'S MASTERPIECE GETS THE MUSEUM TREATMENT

    Jimi Hendrix Large Limited-Edition Artist-Signed "Flying Eyeball" Serigraph.
    An enormous, super-high-quality strike of the Bill Graham San Francisco concert poster known as BG-105, for the Jimi Hendrix Experience live at San Francisco's Fillmore Auditorium and Winterland Ballroom in February 1968. This was completely authorized and sanctioned by the legendary San Francisco poster artist Rick Griffin, who stylistically signed each of the prints individually in the lower-right margin.

    Five hundred of these were made almost a third of a century ago, and each one is individually numbered and embossed in the lower left; this one is #398/500. It was printed on super-thick, 100% acid-free rag stock by Arelannes Studios, in cooperation with ArtRock and Rick Griffin, shortly before the artist's premature death in August 1991. (Griffin chose to leave the ticket-buying information off this classy limited edition, since that part was just clerically typeset on the original poster.)

    A magnificent beast of concert-poster artwork that stuns everybody who comes across it, especially when framed. If you have never seen one of these in person, we cannot overstate how imposing it is. It's a common lament among collectors today that they didn't grab one originally at the opening price. This piece is so desirable and sought-after that it's been a full 10 years since Heritage Auctions has had one to offer for sale. Everybody who has one just hangs onto it!

    Measures 28x41" and in pristine, Near Mint/Mint condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
