This original, 1969 Grateful Dead poster has so much going for it that it's sure to receive intense bidder attention!

 

1) This poster is featured in “The Art of Rock” Plate #4.156. 2) This show was played in a tiny ballroom for a few hundred lucky fans. 3) Very few posters were produced to promote the show and just a tiny quantity have survived in ANY condition! 4) This issue features an amazing design that has always been a collector favorite. 5) The Dead performed their classic experimental narrative of Dark Star, Saint Stephen, The Eleven, Lovelight in the second set of this concert. 6) When it comes to vintage concert posters that are in demand, you can't get better than the Grateful Dead! In November 2017, a lower 7.0 graded example reached $1507 in our auction. This one here is PINHOLE FREE and only the third CGC graded example we've ever offered!
