Fillmore Auditorium 9/2-5/66

Catalog No. BG-26

Anyone familiar with the early BG series knows how difficult it is to find this Grateful Dead poster - in any condition. These posters were printed on several different types of paper stock, ranging from very thin to "normal.

The original poster was printed on several different types of paper and measures approximately 13⅜″ x 20⅞″. The most commonly seen stock is extremely thin (.0050″), but this poster was also printed on thicker (.0070-75″) stock. The determining criteria for a poster to be an original is the absence of the notation “#26” that was later scratched into the plate.

The second print poster was printed on vellum and measures approximately 13⅜″ x 21″. The notation “#26” has been scratched into the plate after the “Wes Wilson ’66” credit.

The third print poster was printed on thick (.0090″) index stock and measures approximately 13⅜″ x 20⅞″. This printing also has the “#26” notation scratched into the plate.

The original handbill comes in two types:

The Type A handbill was printed on the same thin stock as the original poster and measures approximately 5⅛″ x 8¾″. These handbills were cut in two different ways, resulting in either a 1⅛″ border above the image and a narrow border below, or a narrow border above the image and a 1⅛″ border below.

The Type B handbill was printed on thicker stock that matches the original posters and measures approximately 4⅞″ x 7½″.

The postcards also come in two different types:

The Type A card measures approximately 5″ x 8¼″ and comes with a 1⅛″ border above the image and a narrow border below, or a narrow border above the image and a 1⅛″ border below.

The Type B card measures approximately 5⅛″ x 7½″.
