Grateful Dead Spirit of Creation

Post by Barry » May 5th, 2010, 6:33 pm

This is a poster from an SDS Ball in 1969, at the University of Utah Union Ballroom. I got it in the early 90's, back when I made and sold tie-dyes. A friend introduced me to a young woman visiting him who had this poster. She said her dad was the photographer and her brother was the model, and she wanted to trade for it. I felt like it was a bogus story but traded her a $25.00 tie-dyed anorak pullover for it anyway, just because I liked it and it was worth the $25.00 to me. She said it was an original, from deep in her dad's closet, if you will. From the info on this website, http://forum.expressobeans.com/viewtopi ... 5&p=731956 I can't tell which it is, 1st or 2nd printing. Either way, I love it. And even 2nd printing copies I saw for $90.00 bucks on another website, though mine is far too badly damaged to be worth that.

Very cool, Barry. It got me doing some searching and here's the 2nd printing on Ebay you might be interested in.
