Wow! What an honor it is to FINALLY offer this amazing poster with third party certification and grading for the FIRST TIME!

 

One of the great events from the history of the Grateful Dead was their run of concerts at the wondrous great Pyramids in Giza Egypt in 1978. This really was a family vacation for the band and the shows were notoriously weak. The Dead had a habit of not rising to the occasion for overly hyped and publicized shows, and the Egypt concerts were no exception. However the event did leave behind one of the best poster images in the Bands history. The late great Alton Kelley created one of his finest posters efforts ever for these shows. This poster is a MUST HAVE for any true Grateful Dead collector. Just 325 pieces of this poster were produced! 

 

This poster has it all: historic and famous art, one of the world's most popular bands, ultra low issue number and clean condition with no tears or pinholes! Grateful Dead concert posters are always amongst the most popular issues and this lot will prove to be no exception. This special poster is sure to enjoy enthusiastic bidder attention. CGC grading will ultimately flesh out various poster issues that are the far more difficult to find than traditionally thought of in the past. This just might be one of those pieces!
