Grateful Dead Poster Sold at Auction
The Grateful Dead was formed during the counterculture movement of the 1960s. Founding members included Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Ron McKernan, Phil Lesh and Bill Kreutzmann. The band had a three decade career until Garcia’s death in 1995 and released 13 studio albums between 1967 and 1989. Seven of their studio albums were certified gold in the United States and four were platinum or double platinum.
We sold a poster for the 1973 rock festival “Summer Jam” that featured the Grateful Dead for $1,903. This one day concert once held a Guinness Book record for drawing the largest crowd to a music festival. It’s believed that approximately 600,000 people attended “Summer Jam”, more than the 400,000 that attended the legendary Woodstock of 1969. Please see poster details below:
