    Grateful Dead Group Signed Document Lot (1981). Perhaps the rarest document grouping offered in this entire auction, presented here is a lot of six (6) standard AFTRA engagement contracts, two pages each, 8.5 x 11, dated May 7, 1981, and issued to each individual member of the Grateful Dead on behalf of Grateful Dead Productions. Completely uniform throughout all six documents, each band member agrees to perform on NBC's "Tomorrow Coast to Coast" for the sum of $303.50 per performer. Each document is handsomely signed at the conclusion of the first pages, with Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir (signed 'Robert Weir') signing in blue ink and Phil Lesh, Billy Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart and the late Brent Mydland all signing in black ink. Well preserved and in exceptionally fine condition.
