Original 1st printing 18 x 24" concert poster for "Sunspark", a pair of shows held at the MSU auditorium on the campus of Michigan State University in Lansing featuring the Eagles, Gram Parsons and Leater Flatt & the Nashville Grass on 5/11/1973 and Quicksilver Messenger Service, Canned Heat and REO Speedwagon on 5/12/1973.
Art by Hugh Surratt, medium-thin flat vellum stock poster is in decent/used (B/B-) condition; all four corners and the top center margin have pieces of clear tape, along with a couple of tiny edge tears/small pin-prick stains/surface pulls scattered around the outer margin area, a 1&1/2" surface pull at the top of the sun in the image area, a thin horizontal scrape in the left/center margin area, light handling wear, a few thin stress bends here and there, a thin diagonal bend in the upper right corner, tape pulls on the reverse and a couple of soft roll bends, otherwise OK.... still presentable.
Conditional issues aside, this is an EXTREMELY uncommon low-run college poster highlighted by a solo appearance by the late Gram Parsons; while there are GP pieces that pop up occasionally, they are VERY few and far between.
