April 29, 1967 Earl Warren Showgrounds, Santa Barbara County Fairgrounds The Grateful Dead/The Doors/UFO/Captain SpeedA fairly substantial Saturday gig in Santa Barbara. Original 1st printing 17 x 22 5/8 concert poster for the Grateful Dead with the Doors, U. And Captain Speed at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara on 4/29/1967. Regard the performance: No tapes or video are available, but you can read all about the Dead's spring 1967. GRADE SYSTEMVERY GOOD - A poster in VERY GOOD condition may have blemishes in the border and up to approximately one inch of the poster's artwork.There may be small tears in the artwork along the fold lines only. It may also have minor fading. A poster in VERY GOOD condition will command slightly less than one in NEAR MINT condition. 9- GRADE SYSTEM The 9-grade system is the most commonly used. The 9- grade system includes the same terms as the 6-grade system, with the addition of the three grades EXCELLENT, VERY FINE and FINE. These grades fit between the grades of NEAR MINT and VERY GOOD. VERY FINE - VERY FINE condition is a term used by some dealers that describes a condition that is comparable to what dealers call VERY GOOD in the 6-grade system.
This can be confusing since both systems use a VERY GOOD condition grade at different levels. 10-GRADE SYSTEMC8 - EXCELLENT - Commonly referred to as Condition A or Very Fine. Item may be in "never-used" condition or may have been used in the theater, but was carefully preserved after use. If a C9 is almost like new, then a C8 is not far behind a C9. An above-average poster exhibiting minimal signs of use.Poster has no major defects but could have an accumulation of several minor ones, such as a small (1/8 or less) border chip. No creases on lobby cards, but normal/minor creases on one sheets and larger posters is to be expected. A handful of small pinholes or border tears could be present. Aging on older pieces could be present.
Paper could be slightly yellowed, but not brown. Minimal or slight restoration could be present if professionally done. There may be signs of wear and use, such as folds or creases (except on lobby cards), possibly a minor border tear, or pinholes in the border. Not soiled; clean and bright. No frontal tape repairs are allowed in this grade, but possibly one very minor tape repair to the back of the piece.
Window cards may have written or printed banners. The image area of the poster should be undamaged. Poster should be bright, supple, and clean. May exhibit more fold wear than a C9, but without significant color loss in the fold areas.
No edge wrinkling or fraying is allowed in this grade. No tape is allowed in this grade.
No writing on the front of the poster is allowed in this grade, however, writing on the back of the poster that DOES NOT BLEED THROUGH is acceptable in this grade. Minor tears are allowed in this grade, but they should be MINOR, meaning less than 1 in length, and not more than two total tears on the item. Common areas for tears on posters are at the folds, especially the interior folds where the item may have been unfolded and then refolded.
This kind of minor paper separation (tear) is common and is allowable in a C8 grade notwithstanding other extenuating circumstances. A corner crease (1/2 or less) or two can be present, but numerous creases affecting the image are not allowed in this grade.
