Wow! The historical significance and scarcity allow a piece like this be a world class collectible and we couldn’t be more pleased to offer this FIRST KNOWN CGC graded example of such a rare gem in our auction! Here we have an original early Grateful Dead handbill for the Tour Del Mar Bicycle Race & Folk-Rock Festival in 1966. Little is known about this three day billing and there are no audio recordings or set list information about the Dead’s performances. A real sign of the times quote toward the bottom of the handbill reads “Trip on out to the Happenings and Dig the Action!”. VERY FEW handbills and posters were made for this festival so this specimen is highly sought after by collectors in ANY condition! This CGC graded 7.0 example is far cleaner than its numerical grade leads us to believe. A true Dead collector’s dream!
