In Very Good Minus condition, loss to top left corner and surface loss to lower right corner, nicks and tears, particularly to edges, some surface scratches and general toning.

    This is the first time that Heritage has offered this poster, and as far as we know, it is the only known copy. It is worth noting that, amazingly, the Temptations are only listed as the fifth named act on the lineup. This poster includes three Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees: Jackie Wilson (1987), the Temptations (1989) and the Drifters (1988).
