This poster is signed in silver colored ink by the artist Dennis Larkins!


Here we have the FIRST CGC Graded example of this Grateful Dead poster to appear in our auction! This killer design by artist Dennis Larkins has a terrific southwest motif. The concert in Santa Fe was from the early eighties when the Dead were gaining huge momentum and were selling out entire tours. Dennis Larkins is best remembered for his Grateful Dead Radio City poster (which is ALSO IN THIS SALE)! 


Our records show that there are 2 different size variations of this Santa Fe poster in circulation, and both were Original Pre-Concert First Printings. The majority of them had the ticket outlet information trimmed off the bottom and were offered for sale at the show. Only a SMALL QUANTITY of them (like this example here) exist with the ticket information still intact along the bottom! Best of all, this example is SIGNED by the artist! It is unlikely that another one of these babies will surface again any time soon! If you are a Grateful Dead collector, don't let this poster slip away!
