    Peter, Paul & Mary Unusual 1968 Concert Poster from Virginia Beach, VA.
    A red & black cardboard window card advertising the folk trio at the Alan B. Shepard Civic Center for a Saturday evening show and Sunday matinee. Like all three Peter, Paul & Mary concert posters in this little triptych, this is a one-off design that was used for this weekend only, which poster collectors love to see; it's surely the only one we've ever seen.

    It's highly unusual for a couple of reasons; first, instead of the standard 14" x 22", this is only 11.5" wide, giving it a tall, slender appearance, very catchy for a change. And instead of a photo of PP&M, an artistic rendering of them actually singing is a very refreshing change of pace. Pretty nice plug above their heads, too!

    And finally, a lot of different type fonts went into the design, creating strong eye appeal. Even the rendition of the venue up at the top adds pizzazz to this. And not only do they alternate all the lettering between red, black and white, but they create a fourth "color" by combining red & white in the "Virginia Beach" at the top. A lot of thought went into the design of this poster!

    Measures approximately 11.5" x 22". In Good condition, with light corner wear (with rubbing), toning, damp-staining, and soiling at the edges. This is the same specimen that was previously sold by HA last year as part of a pair, now being re-consigned. COA from Heritage Auctions.
