Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster is in good/decent (B to B/B-) condition; there are a series of semi-pronounced handling/stress creases scattered throughout the poster, along with a large nail hole/drag tear and a small surface pull in the top center margin, staple/pin holes and tape residue shadows in all four corners and in the top/bottom center margins, a bit of pressure creasing and a couple of tiny nip tears along the left/right margis, a set of tape pulls and a bit of writing on the reverse side... definitely a well-traveled example.
Conditional issues aside, still a cool late-'69 concert/event artifact from what was by many accounts a VERY fun day.
