Definitely one of the classic Fillmore images.  In fact, Santana used this image (with a few refinements...other band names removed) as cover art for their first album (illegally, if you ask the artist Lee Conklin...the lawsuit has still not
been settled to this day).  The appearance of the Grateful Dead has also added to the popularity of BG 134.

The original/first print poster was printed on uncoated index paper stock, similar to most Fillmore posters printed in 1968.  It measures approx.  14" x 21".

The second print poster, an authorized reprint, was printed on a slick, glossy paper stock.  In addition, a script "W" appears in the lower right corner. This poster measures approx.  14" x 21", and was printed in 1975.

The original postcard was printed prior to the shows, and exists in two variations. One has a blank back, with an empty rectangular box in the corner.  The other has a calendar of other Bill Graham events on the back.

A double sized postcard of this image and BG 135 was also printed.  It was the first BG double card to be printed side by side.  It measures approx.  7" x 9 1/4", and most were mailed.  It is worth noting that the back of the BG 134 image on the double card has a bulk rate permit.  Any card with the bulk rate back has been cut from a double card.
