This poster is signed in black ink by the late, legendary Jerry Garcia!!!

Wow! What an honor it is to offer this amazing poster for the FIRST TIME with CGC Grading and authentication! This classic Alton Kelley poster was created for what would end up a cancelled show in London before the band’s historic 1978 Egypt concerts. It features the same super popular image as the Egypt poster, but has the cancelled Rainbow Theater information. Just 325 pieces of this poster were produced! Best of all, this example here is signed by Jerry Garcia! Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot.

This poster has it all: signed by a legendary artist, historic and famous art, one of the world's most popular bands, ultra low issue number and museum quality condition! In November 2017, a similar condition example signed by Jerry Garcia sold at auction for $3749 and it was not certified by CGC. 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!
