Presenting an exciting example of this first printing poster in our auction! The FD-33 is one of the most sought-after Grateful Dead posters in the Avalon Series.

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.
