Original 1st printing 14 x 21&7/8" concert poster and 22&3/8 x 13&7/8" uncut sheet of (10) blank-reverse handbills for Traffic appearing with Blue Cheer and Iron Butterfly (along with the Joshua Light Show) at the Fillmore East in New York City from 4/26-27/1968.
Art by (poster is SIGNED in black flair pen by) David Edward Byrd, image is # 5 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore East series and is featured in the Art of Rock on page 160 (plate 2.102).
Medium flat vellum stock poster and sheet are in near mint (A-, card sheet) and very good to excellent (B/B+ to B+, poster) condition; the poster has a dime-sized white press imperfection in the top center margin, a thin diagonal bend in the upper left margin, a few semi-camouflaged press hickeys, a trace of edge/corner creasing and a hint of handling wear, the sheet is printed slightly off-register, along with few stray pinch dings hiding within the image area, but overall both pieces are in physically good shape (no holes, stains, etc.)
REALLY cool pair of early 1968 Fillmore East items that originally came from the printer's archives.
