Original 1st printing 18&7/8 x 28 (trimmed 3/8" along the bottom margin) concert poster 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 stock poster is in decent/used (B/B-) condition; aside from the aforementioned edge trimming (originally done to fit into a frame), there are (3) tack holes in the upper left/right corners and in the top center margin, along with a small white abrasion/scuff along the upper margin, a few tiny edge dings/hairline cracks scattered around the outer margin area, a couple of fairly well-hidden stress bends hiding within the image area, a set of tape marks and a couple of semi-light pull on there reverse side, otherwise OK... I've seen better and I've seen worse.
Conditional issues aside, still a very decent-looking used 1st printing example of one of the most popular Grateful Dead images of all time. Check out the (new) official Grateful Dead channel YouTube video for "Sugar Magnolia>Scarlet Begonias>Fire on the Mountain" HERE:
