Original 1st printing 12&3/8 x 8" cardboard concert/album promo mini-poster (oversized double-sided Columbia Records "Greetings From Asbury Park" promotional postcard) for Bruce Springsteen appearing with Heavy Trucking (*in a benefit for "All You Can Eat") at Records Hall on the campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ on 8/5/1973 (*UNCONFIRMED- possibly canceled).
Designer/artist not credited, extra-thick cardboard stock card/poster is in used (B-) condition; there is a 1" diagonal wedge of paper missing from the upper right corner tip, along with heavy wear/creasing and multiple pin/staple holes in the other three corners, a series of glue residue/moisture stains, a large dark drip stain on the reverse that bleeds through to the front, tape marks, heavy creasing- the pictures should really tell the story with this one, it's definitely been around the proverbial block a few times. That said, this is one scarce puppy, canceled show or not... I couldn't find any references to this poster or this show anywhere, but it clearly looks like it was displayed to advertise the show and it for sure originated in the Columbia Records promotional department, so who knows? Could be an undiscovered early Springsteen show, but I can't really confirm anything about the gig happening, although it certainly looks like it was officially scheduled and advertised.
