We at PAE believe this is simply one of the coolest early Grateful Dead Posters ever! This example is only the third CGC graded example of this original poster we've auctioned in over 13 years. The Bank was a relatively obscure venue previously known as The Blue Law however it went down in folklore as hosting some amazing concerts.


San Francisco’s house band traveled to Torrance California in October of 1968. Material from The Bank is highly sought after by collectors. Original Pre-Concert First Printing posters like this are why so many NEW collectors are now rushing into the hobby. Amazing image. Legendary band. Historic venue. Third Party Certification and Authentication. 100% Original with no restoration.
