In every collecibles arena there are no more powerful words than "one of a kind'! While we can't say this is the only existing copy of this poster, we can indeed say this is the very FIRST to ever appear at public auction! This poster comes from a long time collection of a committed Dead Head in Illinois. It is 100% Authentic, Original First Printing with no restoration of any kind. Despite the number of flaws, the poster is remarkably intact with no nicks, cuts or tears and just one tack hole. 

Posters in this condition fro the same year, such as the Barton Hall routinely realize $2500 and up. There are dozens known of that piece so it will be interesting to see what value the market assigns to this ULTRA RARE FIRST TIME OFFERED concert poster!
