Avalon Ballroom 3/24-26/67
The popularity as both a Grateful Dead poster and a Rick Griffin design has put plenty of pressure on this poster from collectors. The central image is an interesting choice by Griffin and features three men with long hair wearing large hats. This poster was printed twice with first printings being quite difficult to find.
The original poster was printed on white index stock and measures approximately 14⅜″ x 20″. All originals are at least 14″ wide or wider and tend to be darker than the second print.
The second print poster was printed on white index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 20″.
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.
