    Description

    Simon & Garfunkel (The Graduate, "Mrs. Robinson") 1968 Syracuse, NY Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel performing at the Onondaga County War Memorial in Syracuse, New York on Sunday evening, October 6, 1968. The rubber stamp at the bottom says, "Approved for Posting. Date_______, Dean of Men." An official part of the original board that is not considered damage. Measures 13 7/8" x 22" and grades to Very Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: A sparse but very cool poster of the legendary duo in their prime, with strong blue letters offsetting the sketch of Artie on the left, and Paul, that Columbia Records used frequently in their promotional materials at the time. This is the Graduate / Bookends / "Mrs. Robinson" Simon & Garfunkel, when they were the epitome of cool and seemed to own the world, at least the intellectual one.

    Condition details: Poster has 3-4 pin holes in each corner. Three of the four corners also have tape lifts on the white. A pinhole is found right above Paul Simon's head, and there's another one in his hair that didn't break through. Multi-pronged surface crease where Art and Paul's hair meet. Surface dirt/markings on Simon's face and neck. Small creases through "Sun." and "Oct." Gentle crease in upper right area through "EL" in "Garfunkel." Dinged lower-right corner resulting in one-inch crease. Small, very light tape residue on the bottom edge under "Memorial." General toning throughout. Rubber stamp in lower-right corner part of the advertising process and not considered damage. Verso has half-a-dozen tape lifts from when the board was posted.
