This Grateful Dead flyer promoted a pair of shows at the Milwaukee Performing Arts Center in October 1972. The original flyer was designed by the Cartoon Factory and produced on both yellow and turquoise colored paper, the turquoise version being the example you see here. There was also a later, post concert version produced on bright blue paper, which can be identified by a small loss of print ink / or slice missing from the left side of the "G" in Grateful at the top left. The turquoise example you see here has been authenticated as a pre-concert, original first printing and does not exhibit the missing print slice. This is the first time we have ever offered one of these vintage 1972 flyers in our auction!
