     After a short lull in the early 1980’s, the Grateful Dead burst back onto the psychedelic rock scene in the latter portion of the decade, spurred on by a rejuvenated Jerry Garcia and his all-star cast of supporting band mates. The Dead kicked off the Spring 1988 tour with a date at the Omni in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 24th, before playing a series of 16 more shows culminating with a series of three performances at the Rosemont Horizon in Illinois on April 13th, 14th, and 15th.

     Presented here is a piece of Grateful Dead artwork from their Spring 1988 tour, signed by seven members of the Dead. The poster, which features a skull bisected by a lightning bolt, was created by renowned pop artist Peter Max. Scenes of mind-bending whimsy float around the two-toned skull, including a man in bell-bottoms striding through the cosmos and a woman floating in the stars. The scene is bordered by a blue, green, and yellow gradient pattern with a red bottom. “Spring Tour 1988” is printed on the bottom border in blue and black text. Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, Brent Mydland, and Peter Max have all signed the bottom of this poster in black marker. This item, which comes in a 37 x 27 inch frame, is accompanied by a LOA from Steve Grad of Beckett Authentication (A82185). We previously had the honor of offering one of these signed items in May 2017 when it sold for $14,400
