    Description

    Jackson 5, Bob Hope 1973 Pocono State Fair Pennsylvania Concert Poster. An original cardboard advertising window card for the Pocono State Fair in Long Pond, Pennsylvania for 10 days in July 1973, featuring the Jackson Five, comprised of 14-year-old Michael Jackson plus his brothers Marlon, Tito, Jermaine and Jackie.
    Other artists appearing (and on the poster) include comedian Bob Hope - the biggest celebrity of the fair - and Mac Davis, Helen Reddy, Sammy Davis Jr. and the Acme 500, billed as the biggest NASCAR race in the state.
    Measures 14" x 22" and grades to Very Good condition. Has several creases on poster's lower right edge which go into the clown picture but don't reach his head or face; ½" margin tear right over from the clown; surface creasing under the word "Fair" in the white area by the edge; light two-inch crease in upper right corner, and about the same in lower right corner; the colors appear to have faded a bit due to light exposure, especially in something like "Pocono International Raceway," also causing the board's toning; and the verso has a bit of dark rubbing on it, plus three bits of original cello tape still attached. COA from Heritage Auctions.
