Original 1st printing 4&3/4 x 7&5/8" bulk-rate-stamped hand-addressed MAILED concert handbill/card for the Grateful Dead appearing with Big Mama Thornton and Tim Rose at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA from 12/9-11/1966.
Art by Wes Wilson, image is # 41 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore series.
Medium-thin flat index stock card is in good/decent (B to B/B-) condition; there is a hard horizontal center crease and staple holes in the top/bottom center margins (item was folded in half and stapled together for mailing), along with the aforementioned hand-addressed (in blue ballpoint) and stamped reverse, a 3-4" thin diagonal bend running along the lower margin into the lower right margin, a bit of uneven toning along the top margin, a tiny bit of neon paint splatter in the bottom center margin and a light amount of handling wear, otherwise fine.
Conditional issues aside, this is still a pretty decent example of a fairly early Fillmore mailer.
