The original/first print poster measures approx. 14 1/8" X 20 1/2",
and has a white border.
The second print poster, an authorized reprint, measures approx. 14"
X 20", and has a yellow border.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE that an uncut proofsheet (printed prior to the
shows) exists that contains a yellow border poster, and six white border
cards. We have seen this proofsheet. It is owned by Phil
Cushway (Artrock). According to Eric King, this proofsheet was
probably an experiment by Rick Griffin to get an idea of how a yellow
border FD 65 might look (it was not uncommon for Rick to do this).
It is Eric's opinion that Rick probably preferred the yellow, so when they
reprinted posters the FD went with the yellow border. Eric is
certain that yellow border FD- 65 posters were not distributed prior to
the shows. We consider the yellow border posters to be reprints, but
the existence of the aforementioned proofsheet certainly make it possible
that yellow border originals do exist.
The original postcards were printed prior to the shows, and measure
approx. 5" X 7". Both place stamp here & bulk rate cards are
known to exist (all of which have a white border).
