 Original 1st printing 17&1/4 x 22&1/4" concert poster for the Velvet Underground (with Lou Reed) appearing with Clover and Maya at the Hippodrome in San Diego, CA from 6/14-15/1968.

 Art by Rebecca Galdeano, image is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 286 (plate 3.98).

 Thick flat vellum stock poster has been professionally restored to very good (B/B+) condition; there has been a fairly extensive amount of work around the outer border area, including several areas of paper replacement, sealed edge tears and there are numerous touch-ups hiding within the image area- beyond that, there remain a few thin stress bends/creases scattered throughout the poster (mostly around the edges) and there is a subtle moisture wave (poster was washed/cleaned to remove dirt)... there's definitely been a bit of work on this one, but it looks WAY better than it did when it came in.

 VERY hard-to-find mid-'68 V.U. concert poster from Southern California, this is the first one of these that I have ever had to offer up. For more on the background of the short-lived Hippodrome, here's an interesting overview;
