Avalon Ballroom 7/4/67
The FD-69 image is certainly one of the classics in the Family Dog series. Rick Griffin designed it for a July 4, 1967 show at the Avalon, aptly entitled “Independance.” These were printed only once and are prized by collectors for the gorgeous design.
The original poster was printed on white index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 21⅛″. The gold color varies from near brown to nearly yellow.
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.
