PARK CITY, UTAH (PRWEB) JULY 07, 2017

A $50,000 reward has just been announced by Psychedelic Art Exchange for anyone that has an authentic, undamaged original first printing of the Family Dog Tribal Stomp FD-1 Concert Poster. The rare concert poster promotes a performance by Jefferson Airplane and Big Brother and the Holding Company that took place at the Fillmore Auditorium on February 19, 1966.

"We recently auctioned off a copy of the famous FD-1 Tribal Stomp concert poster that generated tremendous interest around the world," explained Scott Tilson of Psychedelic Art Exchange, the auction house offering the reward. "Now we have 4 other collectors begging us for this important concert poster. We're hoping our $50,000 reward for an undamaged copy brings at least one seller out of the woodwork. Collectors need to know we would be thrilled to acquire this special poster in any condition and we're willing to pay a world record price to get it," explained Tilson.

The Family Dog Tribal Stomp FD-1 concert poster has special historical significance because it is the very first in the Family Dog concert poster series. Just 250 original first printings were produced and just a small fraction of those are known to exist today. If you have a Family Dog Tribal Stomp FD-1 concert poster you wish to sell, or any other Family Dog concert posters from 1966, call Scott Tilson at 435-659-1660 or email Scott (at) ConcertPosterGallery.com

Rare Grateful Dead Troupers Club Concert Poster Designed by 1960's Counterculture Icon Owsley Stanley to be Auctioned by Psychedelic Art Exchange

In The Press

Famed LSD Imprresario Tim Scully has owned the poster for over 51 years.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND (PRWEB) APRIL 21, 2017

An ultra rare Grateful Dead concert poster designed by 1960's counterculture icon Owsley Stanley, is being auctioned April 27, 2017 by Psychedelic Art Exchange. The poster was created for a March 25, 1966 Grateful Dead Concert held at The Troupers Club in Los Angeles, California. This specimen was previously unknown to the collectibles world, and is one of just 4-5 copies known to exist.

The consigner of the poster is famed LSD impresario Tim Scully, who has owned the poster for the past 51 years. Scully is the subject of the recently released and critically praised documentary, The Sunshine Makers. The Sunshine Makers is the story of Tim Scully and Nick Sand, the unlikely duo that found themselves at the center of the 1960's American drug counterculture.

The winning bidder in the auction will also get the opportunity to meet Tim Scully and learn all the details about his time with The Grateful Dead, Owsley Stanley, and his experience as one of history’s central figures in the manufacture of LSD.

"This is much more than just a concert poster," explained Glen Trosch of Psychedelic Art Exchange. "The story of this poster, who designed it, who owned it, and the LSD labs it visited, sounds like a movie, which it actually is. Collectors are telling us they're really excited!"
