Acid Test poster by Hell's Angel artist "GUT" – bidding at $15,750.00

The HeART of Rock and Roll Poster Auction is auctioning off a series of great old posters. The bidding is up to $15K for this one designed by Hells Angel artist GUT. Here's what they say about it:

Where do we begin? Have you passed the Acid Test? Here we have one of the most sought after psychedelic posters by serious, deep collectors. This is The Acid Test Graduation, an October 31st Halloween celebration of the mind, featuring Ken Kesey & his Merry Pranksters, Neil Cassidy & the Grateful Dead. (While the Grateful Dead is actually listed on the poster, they did not play here. Instead they played at California Hall). Footage of this Acid Test & others can now be seen on DVD. This poster was printed with florescent day-glo inks, very apropos of the time. It was designed by the Hells Angels artist, GUT. The ORIGINAL printing, offered here, measures 20" x 12". It is in remarkable Near Mint condition, a 1.5 on our grading scale, with just a touch of handling and a couple of soft corners. We expect some fierce bidding for this historic poster. In the past, lesser copies have fetched in excess of $15,000. Rarely, do clean copies such as this emerge. So, have you passed the Acid Test? Well, have you? Call us, S.F. Rock Posters at 1-800-949-1965 or 415-956-6749 with any specific questions.
