Art by Rick Griffin and Alton Kelley, image is # 133 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore series.
Medium-thick flat index stock poster is in very good to excellent (B/B+ to B+) condition; a set of tack/pin holes (all four corners), a crescent-shaped pinch bend /crease in the lower left margin (about 1&1/2" long), a few small bends and a tiny bit of creasing in the lower right corner/margin area, a thin vertical stress bend in the lower right corner, a small scuff/discoloration in the right center margin, a tiny split in the bottom right corner tip, a couple of tiny edge dings and a stray fingerprint or two, otherwise fine. VERY nice-looking example with a fairly minimal amount of wear.
As an obscure (and interesting) footnote, this design was originally submitted to the Family Dog and had completely different bands in the left/right panels (see FD 130 and 131 for the shows it was originally intended to cover). Chet Helms couldn't afford to have it printed in color, so Griffin took it over to Bill Graham and it was re-purposed for these shows. Clever move!
