My collection was obtained from the famous Postermat store in San Francisco back in 1992. The collection had been sitting in a warehouse for over 20 years when I purchased it. Most of the posters are in near mint condition although many have minor signs of handling. The owner of Postermat, my boss Ben Friedman ran the store since the early 60's where he sold records as well as posters that covered the walls of his North Beach store. Postermat was a popular hang out and many famous celebrities including Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, John Lennon and Rick Griffin frequented the shop and called Ben their friend. A story about Ben and the history of the Postermat can be found in the book "The Art of Rock" on page 12.
Our grading system is based on this 7 point scale:
1.0 is mint to near mint
1.0-1.5 is near mint with minor signs of handling
1.5 has more signs of handling like small bends in the corners
2.0 has more damage like a small tear or stain.
2.0-2.5 can have larger tears or stains
2.5 has significant stains, tears and/or other damage.
2.5-3.0 has more severe damage.
3.0 is terribly damaged and may have large stains and/or tears
