Collection of four (4) original 1st printing hand-addressed mailed 1966 concert flyers for assorted Family Dog Presents concerts held at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, CA. (4) piece set consists of the following;

All flyers are printed on thin to medium-thin vellum stock and are 8&1/2 x 11", with a pair of horizontal folds (all were folded into 1/3rds for mailing), hand-written (pencil, ball-point pen, marker) addresses (all to the same person) and canceled 1966 postmarks with original 5 cent stamps on the reverse. The conditions range, but they are mostly in the B/B- to B- range, with toning/fading, tack/pin holes, a variety of surface issues, handling, edge wear and other assorted minor to semi-pronounced conditional issues, but the set as a whole is quite presentable.
A neat little collection of ORIGINAL 1st edition MAILED Avalon flyers, all from VERY early in the F.D. mailing-list campaign.
