“Dead letters” for KPFA auction

UPDATE form Steven Marcus 1/30/12: “I will also be including one of my Grateful Dead Productions Business cards, and unused ticket to one of the Europe 1990 shows, an original printing of Robert Hunters Elegy for Jerry that he recited at Jerry’s funeral (there were two printings the first one high quality paper and the second on basic heavy paper.)

  18. I will also be including one of my Grateful Dead Productions Business cards, and unused ticket to one of the Europe 1990 shows, an original printing of Robert Hunters Elegy for Jerry that he recited at Jerry’s funeral (there were two printings the first one high quality paper and the second on basic heavy paper.) I might put some other things in the book if the bids go higher…

    $225.00 for Dead Letters Package! What fun!

  22. Steven Marcus says:

    Just got the book signed by Carol Latvala…that will be the last signature before the auction is over…I am hoping for one more but won’t be able to get it until after the 4th…

  23. Nick Fletcher says:

    I nod and wink $250.

  24. Steven Marcus says:

    Okay, here are some scans of the extra’s I am including in this KPFA copy of Dead Letters…also as of today Carol told me this is the third time she has signed something (although she hand printed her name because she doesn’t like her signature!) http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.310984352285830.93101.100001228030345&type=3

  25. well is this where I bid? if so, since ALL of my GDTS ANGELS FEEL THIS WORTHY OF SINGING I’LL GET ON BOARD AND SAY $525.00 AS AN EARLY BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO ME IN ADDITION TO THE TWO BILL BOBBLE HEADS FROM THE RECENT RELEASE.

    GOD BLESS THE THE GRATEFUL DEAD &
    THE GD “FAMILY” <3 YOU

  26. stephen cornell says:

    OOPS I THOUGHT THE 420.00 WAS FOR JUST THE LETTERS BOOK SO I’D DO $420.00 FOR THE BOOK.

  27. stephen cornell says:

    SO DID I WIN THE BOOK AT $420? OR WHAT? IF I COULD GET BOTH BOOKS FOR $525.00 THAT’S COOL OR HECK “ALL HE BID HE SHALL REGAIN”. GOOD CAUSES SUPPORTED BY GRATEFUL HEADS, PEACE & <3

  28. Steven Marcus says:

    Stephen, I have no idea what the winning bid was for the Dead Letters book…your post was a little confusing to me. Did you bid $420 for Dead Letters or $525? The last top bid for the Poster/artwork book was $420.00 and the last top bid for Dead Letters was $250.00, so to beat both those bids you would have had to bid a combination of over $670.00! I guess David and the powers that be will decide if you were bidding on just Dead Letters…anyway good luck! <3 Steven

  29. Steven Marcus says:

    David, I just talked to Stephen Cornell and he confirmed that $420 WAS his bid for Dead Letters!!! He is very excited to be getting it. The last signature I am waiting for is from Joanne “Pearl Problem” Wishnoff when she comes back from Hawaii on the 4th…
