Great score, Mike! A word of caution, those look to be the same fancy cut mats they have on the one in the museum at Red Rocks which are definitely not acid-free, nor do I think it has UV glass. I highly suggest taking that to a framer to switch them out as well as check what type of backing it's on. If you're interested in the nostalgia of it, at least have them add an acid-free collar under the matting. That's a gem, well worth taking good care of. Breaks my heart to watch those mats yellow more each year on the one at Red Rocks. :cry:

Yeah, although it was a 10 year quest, in the end, like always, there was a lot of luck involved.
Insanely happy and proud to finally have it hanging on my wall.

Wow, just drymounting wow ...
So many awesome gig posters and amazing framing jobs.

I just found this thread and spent a couple of hours going through it.
It makes most of my framed posters look pretty plain and boring ... but I have found plenty of inspiration to do better.

Well done,
Bert.
