Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster is in good (B) condition; there are nine (9) thin horizontal roll creases running along the left margin, a set of tack/pin holes (all four corners), a series of light handling dings/soft creases/thin stress bends and tiny pin-prick stains scattered throughout the image area/margins, a trio of small vertical tears in the bottom center margin (sealed on the reverse with clear tape) and a hint of toning, otherwise fine.
AWESOME-looking early-1970's SIGNED Gary Grimshaw poster from one of the most important/polarizing political events held in Ann Arbor up to that point.
