    Yardbirds Fillmore Concert Poster #BG121, Postcard, Tickets, and Autograph Set (Bill Graham, 1968) The Yardbirds were widely regarded as one of Britain's best blues-influenced rock bands, and the staring ground for three of rock's greatest lead guitarists: Eric Clapton (who played on the original "Five Live Yardbirds" album and their first hit, "For Your Love"); Jeff Beck, who guided the band through most of their mid '60s career, and Beck's eventual replacement, Jimmy Page, responsible for the band's final studio album. For an all-too-brief time, the band had the services of both Beck and Page; unfortunately, the only recorded work by this incarnation was their appearance in the 1967 film "Blow Up" (performing a fiery version of "Stroll On"). That makes this item all the more desirable, as the autograph set included does indeed feature both guitarists, as well as band members Chris Dreja, Jim McCarty, and the late Keith Relf. The poster is the May 23-25 Fillmore concert with Cecil Taylor and It's a Beautiful Day, featuring art by Lee Conklin. A complete set of three unused tickets and a postcard round out the set. The autographs, written on an LP insert sleeve, are quite legible, especially Page. And considering Beck's long-time reluctance to sign anything except current items, it's extremely doubtful he added his signature (in contrasting blue ink) at a later date. The signed sleeve has a few minor wrinkles, but the overall collection, matted and framed to an overall size of 28" x 15.5", is in NM- condition.
