Presenting an exciting example of this first printing poster in our auction! If you fancy your collection to contain only top shelf items of the most famous Family Dog issues of the series then THIS CGC Graded lot is what you should be focusing on right at this very moment.

The FD-33 is one of the most sought after Grateful Dead posters in the Avalon Series. This striking yet simple design by Mouse and Kelly utilize the Family Dog logo in striking Green and Red. A very tiny fraction of the original issuance have survived the past 55 years! We ARE aware of a previous specimen graded a slightly higher 9.8 that realized $9487 in September 2018.

Like movie stars and rock bands certain concert posters have a special "IT FACTOR" that transcends the hobby and captures the imagination of all market participants. This lot is one of those types of items and goes a long way in explaining why this poster always enjoys top demand in the few rare occurrences that it surfaces in high quality shape.
