This is unquestionably the most sought after poster of the psychedelic-era.  The Hendrix billing, combined with Rick Griffin's unmatched artwork has made the "Flying Eyeball" the defining Fillmore image.

The original/first print poster was printed on uncoated index paper stock.  The "0" in "105" (at bottom left corner of the poster) is overprinted by the "i" in "Tickets".  This poster measures approx.  14" x 21 1/2".

The second print poster, an authorized reprint, was printed on a coated (slick/glossy) index paper stock.  On this poster, the "5" in "105" is overprinted by the first "T" in "Tickets".  This poster measures approx. 14" x 21 3/4", and was printed shortly after the shows.

This poster was forged (unauthorized/unlawful printing) in the early 1990's.  It was printed on glossy stock, similar to the second print poster, but of a lesser quality.  The colors are also slightly different on this bootleg, but we find the easiest way to distinguish this poster is to examine the lower left and right portions of this poster.  It appears as though someone mishandled the printing plate or film during the printing process, as there are single/faint thumbprints on the lower edges of this poster.  These only appear on the bootleg poster.  This poster measures approx.  14" x 21 3/4".

In the late 1980's an authorized, hand printed silk screen was printed of this image. It is roughly twice the size of the poster, and was printed on a very high quality paper stock.  Only 500 were printed, and each is signed and numbered by Rick Griffin, the artist.  It is a magnificent piece.

The original postcard was printed prior to the shows on the same paper stock as the original poster, and measures approx.  4 1/2" x 7".  It has a place stamp here back.

The original double postcard (BG 105/106) was printed prior to the shows on the same paper stock as the original poster, and measures approx.  4 1/2" x 14". On the back of the BG 105 image, this card has a bulk rate permit.  Many of these cards were mailed.  Any BG 105 card with a bulk rate back has been cut from the BG 105/106 double card.
