Design by Sokoloff Associates, Inc., medium-thin semi-gloss stock handbill is in near mint (A-) condition; aside from a tiny bend in the upper right margin and a touch of handling, this example is just about as sharp as they come.
The ticket is is on vellum card stock and is in very good to excellent (B/B+ to B+) condition; just a few light handling creases and a soft stain on the reverse, otherwise fine.
Nifty little pair of early-'70's GD concert artifacts from New Jersey. Check out the 7/31 Dead show HERE:
