Stanley Mouse Rare Mint Grateful Dead Blue Rose Handbill
This is the December 31, 1978 Dead show that marked the closing of Winterland where Bill Graham had presented his biggest shows for a 10+ year run.
These cards were not used for advertising but were handed out as souveniers at the beginning of the show. Thus, most of them were folded, spindled, mutilated or lost during the course of the show.
Those who attended this show will never part with their tattered copies and Mint copies are virtually unheard of.
Printed on glossy card stock, this classic image is backed with a letter from Bill Graham thanking fans for their years of patronage and detailing the events of the evening (and morning).
