Original 1st printing 16&7/8 x 21&3/4" concert poster for the Grateful Dead appearing with the New Riders of the Purple Sage at the Hollywood Bowl on 6/17/1972.
Design by Pacific Presentations (photo by Herb Greene), image is featured in the Art of Rock on page 372 (plate 4.122).
Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster is in good (B) condition; there is an approximately 3/4" hole/wedge tear in the lower left corner, along with a series of tiny "cub" staple holes scattered throughout the image/outer margin area (about 14 total), a light to moderate degree of handling/surface wear, a few minor edge/corner-tip bends and a bit of scuffing on the reverse side, otherwise OK... conditional issues aside, this is only the second example I have come across that was actually removed from public display at the time of the show.
An always-popular mid-1972 Grateful Dead concert poster from Ron "Pigpen" McKernan's FINAL performance with the Dead. Check out a very decent-sounding audience recording of the show HERE;
