This poster has really appreciated in value. Even though 800 were printed, people really want to keep this in their collection, so they rarely pop up for sale. This could pull $800 easy. Mint, framed, signed and numbered could pull well over a grand.
So strange, but I had the same exact experience as Violentnerd, I saw this poster at the same Hard Rock Cafe and my interest in gig posters was born. I finally have the money to buy one of these so I'm keeping an eye out for one that is on sale.
What is it about this poster? I never cared about posters until I saw this particular poster hanging in the NYC "Hard Rock Cafe". For some reason unexplainable I just find it very compelling. This is the flagship of my collection because I never get tired of looking at it.
Frank, don't you realize you are in fact a slave to those cats? You give them affection, prepare their food and carry away their feces because they require this of you.
And the day after you drop dead from injesting all that bacon, they will happily eat the face right off your skull.
FRANK KOZIK IS NOT GOD, AND HERE IS PROOF: as soon as my kid heard nirvana, she demanded this poster off the wall in my office...at the first flatstock, she pestered frank for two days about what the hell that thing is in the middle is. he kept saying "nothing". near the end of the second day, he finally told her that in the middle thing is god, so now that is what she worships. still better than jesus, though.
I had collected concert posters and flyers since I was 14...but in 93, THIS was the poster that told me what I was supposed to do for a living.
One of only 3 concert posters I have framed in my whole house.
