Major media outlets continue to highlight the historical importance of these rare artworks
Rolling Stone magazine is the latest in a long list of major media outlets to publish a story on the historical importance of vintage 1960’s concert posters. The story takes up 8 full pages in a special Grateful Dead Collectors Edition on newsstands now. All of the major artists of the era are mentioned.
The articles states, “Skulls and roses, melting fonts, and so much more: The iconic images created by San Francisco artists for The Dead’s gig posters were essential to the band’s legend.”
This statement is one of the linchpins that make this collectible so compelling. These beautiful posters were produced in ridiculously small quantities and provide a direct link to what many consider to be the most important decade of the 20th century.
With the advent of super strict, unbiased third party authentication and grading, collectors are just beginning to discover how difficult most issues are to locate in original, undamaged condition, free from all restoration.
We will continue to keep you abreast of developments as this emerging collectible continues to earn attention from major art museums and media outlets in the coming months. Next year’s 50th anniversary celebration of Woodstock is sure to add major fuel to this red hot fire!
