PAE is super pleased to include this ultra rare Grateful Dead/Yardbirds specimen in this sale! This very scarce and early poster is from the very first time the Grateful Dead played in Florida. The band rarely played on the East coast before 1968. This poster was created by "Thee Image" club in Miami Beach, Florida to advertise events coming in April of 1968. In addition to the Dead, this Poster lists April ’68 performances by The Yardbirds(w/J.Page) and Country Joe and The Fish.

Due to a very low original print run, we have only seen this extremely rare issue once prior. In April 2015, a much lesser quality condition Extra Fine "69" graded example realized $1,162 in our auction. In any other collectibles market this poster would be worth many multiples of the previously sold example. It will be interesting to see what premium the market attaches to this superior example now! One thing is for sure: exciting bidding awaits us on this amazing near mint lot!
