Electric Dave Lawrence - The Story Behind Our Current Special Auction!

We are so excited to present our latest special auction event featuring a single-consignor collection curated by Electric Dave Lawrence! Electric Dave is known to anyone who has spent time in poster collecting circles for more than a day. Born and raised on Long Island, Dave was fortunate enough to attend concerts at Bill Graham's Legendary Fillmore East. At a tender age, he witnessed the magic at the height of the 1960s Psychedelic Rock scene.

Our current auction features a copy of what many collectors believe to be THE ESSENTIAL Psychedelic Concert Poster, Rick Griffin's BG-105-OP-1 1968 Jimi Hendrix Fillmore/ Winterland Graded CGC -5.0 The term iconic is often attached to this poster, but even that is insufficient when attempting to sum up this mystical rendering from the master of psychedelic poster art, Rick Griffin. Those who have been previously initiated into the concert poster world will gush endlessly about this poster, as for many of us it was our first crush, the gateway drug that lured us to this fascinating collectible.  BG-105 is arguably the...
