AOR-4.113-OP-1 Poster CGC Grade 9.4 Grateful Dead
Offered is the first printing of AOR-4.113 poster. Front Cover Multiple Finger Bends. Original 1st printing 17&1/2 x 21 concert poster for the Grateful Dead appearing at UCSB Stadium on the campus of UC Santa Barbara on 6/4/1978. Art by Maas, image is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 369 (plate 4.113). Date of Performance: June 4, 1978. This poster is graded 9.4 under CGC Universal grade and is sealed in heavy gauge archival plastic for protection. CGC employs a 10-point grading scale for concert posters that is based on the industry standard the company established for comics, magazines, photos and lobby cards. The CGC grade appears on one of a number of colored labels, which differentiate a CGC Universal Grade from CGC grades assigned with any qualifiers or special considerations, including conservation, restoration and signed pieces. CGC-graded concert posters are sealed in tamper-evident holders of a heavy gauge archival plastic. These posters were very cheaply made; especially the earlier ones. Bill Graham never envisioned that they would someday become collector items. They were intended to be posted on walls, telephone poles, etc. To advertise that weeks performing artists only to be torn down, discarded and replaced next week with a new poster for the next show. As such, maintaining them in pristine condition is an on-going challenge. I have gone through great lengths to insure that. Posters have been maintained using only archival materials. I have preserved them on acid free paper mounted by protective corners stored flat in binders. On most of the photos of posters that I will be offering you may notice these corner protectors.
