Original 1st printing 8&1/2 x 11 Bill Graham Presents-issued locally-distributed ticket purchase info flyer 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 Randy Tuten, thin flat stock Xerox-printed flyer is in decent/used (B/B-) condition; there are several stray pin/cub staple/pin holes scattered along the top/bottom margins, along with a number of pronounced creases, corner bends, a bit of surface staining in the lower right corner, handling/edge wear, etc... clearly, this one has been around the block a few times.

 Despite the numerous condition issues, it's still a pretty uncommon/hard-to-find Grateful Dead/BGP concert artifact. I'm assuming most of these got tossed, as I haven't seen too many of them circulating. This design that was later reprinted by Randy as a larger-format poster (you see them all over the place, they are on blue stock, mostly in mint condition and signed), this is a different animal altogether. VERY scarce.
