Starting bid: $1.00

This lot will be accompanied by a Letter of Provenance attesting to the fact that it resided in the historic Early '66 Time Capsule Collection one of the most exciting and important concert poster discoveries of the past 20 years.


A very comical and obscure handbill produced for a wild party at San Francisco State College that featured The Amazing CharlEtans (misspelled)! This piece is an incredible example of an early and SUPER RARE psychedelic flyer. Obviously homemade and produced in very small quantities.


Advanced collectors will appreciate the fact that this was the same location for the legendary San Francisco State Acid Test -- otherwise known as the “What Ever It Is?” hosted by the Grateful Dead six months later. Sgt Rock says “Would you believe… Free Balloons”.
