    Grateful Dead 1988 Spring Tour Poster Hand-Doodled by Peter Max.
    A large, colorful Grateful Dead tour poster that's been beautifully embellished by hand, and signed, with oil paints by the poster artist himself, the legendary Peter Max.

    The poster was already a startling combination of two towering pop-culture forces, the Grateful Dead - touring off the biggest album of their career, In the Dark - and superstar surrealist Peter Max. The result is a highly dynamic poster full of psychedelic imagery and dazzling colors. Then you have the scarily cool element of Max taking his oil paints and dressing up the poster in various places, instantly turning it unique. Every time you look at it you see a new place he embellished; there's at least eight, can you spot them all?

    The kind of piece that everyone will comment on when they see it framed on a wall. There are fun items in this auction, and then there are fun items. Measures 24x34" and grades to Near Mint-Mint, with "44530" written on the back and stamped "Copyright Peter Max 1998." COA from Heritage Auctions.
