We at PAE believe this is simply one of the coolest early Grateful Dead Posters ever! This pristine example is only the second CGC graded example of this original poster we've auctioned in over 13 years. The Bank was a relatively obscure venue, previously known as The Blue Law, however it went down in folklore as hosting some amazing concerts.


San Francisco’s house band traveled to Torrance California in October of 1968. Material from The Bank is highly sought after by collectors. Original, Pre-Concert First Printing posters like this are why so many NEW collectors are now rushing into the hobby. Amazing image. Legendary band. Historic venue. TOP Museum Quality Condition. Third Party Certification and Authentication. In 2017 we auctioned another 9.8 graded example for $1162, but the market is much hotter now as the appreciation for 9.8 material is off the charts!
