Medium glossy stock poster is in good to very good (B to B/B+) condition; a series of small to medium-sized edge creases, a number of handling/pinch bends, a 3 x 4" area of creasing in the middle of the "Wavy Gravy" lettering, a couple of tiny thin stress bends and a couple of dog-earred corners, otherwise fine.
Great-looking SIGNED Wavy Gravy poster from this perennially favorite annual Bay Area charity event. Awesome poster with an all-star Bay Area lineup and a nice large Wavy G. signature.
