Original 1st printing 5 x 7&1/2" double-sided ("Welcome" annoncement on reverse) concert handbill/card for the Grateful Dead appearing with the New Riders of the Purple Sage and the Blues Brothers (featuring John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) at Winterland in San Francisco, CA on 12/31/1978 (*the FINAL Winterland show).
Art by Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley, image ("Blue Rose") is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 343 (plate 4.38).
Medium glossy-coated index card stock handbill is in near mint to excellent (A-/B+) condition; just a trace of surface scuffing and a stray fingerprint/thin surface scratch or two hiding within the image area, otherwise it is a VERY crisp original-issue example of the iconic "Blue Rose" image.
