Of all the vintage concert memorabilia we've auctioned, this one may be the most sought after and important of them all. In regards to desirability, the FD-26 is without question one of the "Holy Grails" in the entire Psychedelic Concert Poster genre. Known as Skeleton & Roses, it is the 26th and most famous image in the Family Dog series as the design would later be appropriated by the band as their logo. It's simply the most iconic psychedelic poster out there. When it comes to selling collectibles, it's the opinions of unbiased, third-party experts that matter the most. In this case, a larger version of this Skeleton & Roses brought in a record-breaking $56,400 last year. This lot offers everything in one mind-blowing package, history, rarity, quality, and one of the most famous counter-culture images of all time.
