“Up for auction is an EXTREMELY RARE & VALUABLE Guaranteed Original First Print Poster for the Acid Test with the Grateful Dead in 1966. — This is the Poster that started it all. — — — This is the HOLY GRAIL! — The Grateful Dead’s VERY FIRST appearance on a Rock and Roll Poster. — — These posters were made starting on Dec. 11, for Muir Beach, then used again for Palo Alto on Dec. 18, The Fillmore Jan. 8., and now, I suspect, as well, they were used for Portland at beaver Hall on Jan 15, because this poster was removed from a wall of the San Carlos apartments which are exactly 7 miles from Beaver Hall, in Portland. It is likely this poster was taken home from the event that night. It’s the only one to turn up from the Oregon area, in all these years.” (coudal)
