All posters from the Grande Ballroom are highly sought after and very collectible. Why? Because these posters were printed in extremely small runs of just 500 the Grande Ballroom was the epicenter of the 60’s scene in the upper Midwest and the artistic quality of the artworks rivals anything done out west. 

The 1966 Grande Ballroom poster offered here is incredible and a major opportunity. It is just the eleventh poster in the entire Grande series! Importantly no handbills or postcards were produced for this show making this poster even more desirable.

This is not only the very FIRST CGC graded example of this poster to EVER appear in our auction it is also the first example of ANY kind to cross our auction block!

And oh what a poster it is! This lot features incredible eye appeal and literally looks like it was produced this morning not 52 years ago! If you are a super strict condition freak where only the very best will do this lot should not be overlooked!
