1601 West Evans, Denver, CO 9/22-23/67
Known as FD-82, this poster was used for the third Family Dog show held at 1601 West Evans in Denver, Colorado. Dennis Nolan designed the image, which includes a smiling skull whose teeth spell out “Grateful Dead.”
The original poster comes in two varieties. Both were printed on uncoated white index stock and measure approximately 14″ x 20″.
The Type 1 original does not have a ticket outlet strip.
The Type 2 original has a Denver ticket outlet strip and the words "Grateful Dead" printed on the top part of the skull.
The postcard comes in three varieties, all of which measure approximately 5″ x 7″:
The Type A card has a “place stamp here” reverse.
The Type B card has a bulk rate permit on the back.
The Type C card has a bulk rate permit on the back and was mechanically addressed and sent to people on the Family Dog mailing list.
