Original 20 x 30" art marker (with pencil guidelines) on thin vellum (semi-gloss reverse) artwork for a concert poster featuring the Who appearing with the Lizards at the King Mojo Club in Sheffield, England on 5/30/1965.
Design by Colin Duffield (initialed "CD" in pencil in the lower right margin), image is a re-created (c. 2002) version of the original 1965 concert poster, intended as a commemorative item for the Stringfellow Brothers (club promoters)- although I'm not sure if it was ever printed.
As it is a one-of-a-kind item, a letter grade doesn't really apply, but it is overall in very good to excellent (B/B+) condition; aside from the usual amount of handling/light surface smudges, there are pencil notations and additional embellishments here and there, a black ink splatter mark in the right margin, a couple of light surface stains and a few little minor issues here and there, but overall it is in GREAT shape. While the artwork retains most of the elements of the original poster, several additions have been made (the additional "Stringfellow Bros. Present" line, re-designed "the Who" lettering).
VERY, VERY COOL commemorative Who item, obtained right from the artist's estate. Check out a brief video about the King Mojo Club HERE:
