 ITEM DESCRIPTION

 Original 1st printing 11 x 16&7/8" concert poster for the Grateful Dead appearing at the Old Renaissance Fairgrounds in Veneta, OR on 8/27/1972 (show was a benefit for the Kesey family-operated Springfield Creamery, and was "sponsored" by their main product, "Nancy's Honey of Yog(h)urt").

 Art by Richard Sutton, medium-thick flat index goldenrod stock poster has been professionally restored to excellent (B+) condition; the piece has had a couple of stains removed/washed and a tiny surface tear or two filled/repaired. along with a flattened-out crease or two, but overall it looks REALLY nice... most of the restoration work is VERY well-camouflaged within the image. I don't know who did the restoration work on this one, but's an extremely professional job.

 As it goes without much explanation, this benefit concert was also the LEGENDARY Merry Prankster-hosted party that later became known among Deadhead circles as the "Field Trip"; the all-day event was filmed ("Sunshine Daydream", which was FINALLY officially released in 2013), and by all accounts was one of the most insane parties the Pranksters ever held; check out the film HERE:
