Design by Procity, thick foil-coated cardboard stock poster is in excellent (B+) condition; there is a prominent 3&1/2" hard horizontal bend in the lower right corner (going through "$6.00"), a thin 3/4" vertical bend in the lower right margin/corner, a set of tack holes (all four corners, a few tiny edge dings, a series of ULTRA-light surface scuffs and tiny scratches hiding within the image area and a couple of tiny corner bumps/pressure creases, otherwise fine.
MEGA-SCARCE (and REALLY cool-looking) hard-to-find South Florida festival item with a great pop art/psychedelic design and a VERY eclectic lineup of rock, folk, jazz, R&B, bluegrass and pop. While the red lettering/final state version turns up from time to time, this is the ONLY example I have ever seen that was printed on cardboard. INCREDIBLY cool (and possibly unique) 1968 Festival poster! You can stream the Grateful Dead's set (arguably one of their best shows of 1968) HERE;
