Universally recognized as one of the most popular and stunning posters in the entire Avalon series. This Original, First Printing FD-22 poster was designed by poster legends Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse, featuring the famous Frankenstein image, and Grateful Dead has been misspelled too!

According to Eric King's guide, this issue has repeatedly been counterfeited over the years. CGC has brought much needed integrity and stability to this marketplace. The Original Pre-Concert First Printing Posters of "Frankenstein" very seldom show up in public auctions in this great, museum quality condition.
