Lot 7125: Colorful t-shirt artwork pelon of a skeleton lounging on a float in a pool, dated 1986, 15.75 x 19.75, signed in the lower border in blue felt tip by Jerry Garcia, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzman, and Brent Mydland, and in black felt tip by Bob Weir. Includes a 1989 handwritten letter from a band representative on Grateful Dead letterhead transmitting the piece for a charity auction, as well as the original mailing tube bearing an affixed Grateful Dead Productions return address label. Some spreading to blue felt tip signatures (expected from nature of the fabric), noticeable haloing to Weir's signature, and faint toning to edges, otherwise fine condition. This is a very rare format as pelons such as this were printed in very low quantities. A vibrant piece fully signed by the 1980s iteration of the classic jam band, enhanced by the presence of the original letter and mailing tube.
