Jerry Garcia Autograph Letter Signed

16 Dec

Extremely rare two-part ALS signed twice “Jerry.” First part is on two pages both sides, 5.25 x 8.5, no date but circa late May–early June 1982, and second part is on one page both sides, 8.5 x 11, Hotel Parker Meridien, New York letterhead, no date but postmarked June 22, 1982. Written to a woman he met at a NYC party in 1980, in full: “Thank you really for sending that postcard, I feel like it’s sort of our first ‘official’ communication somehow.

I hope it doesn’t seem like I’ve been avoiding you, although I admit I’ve kind of been waiting for the opportunity (that is, the ‘right’ opportunity) for us to meet in some kind of neutral context that would be comfortable and relaxed and free of any pressure. Of course it could be years before any such opportunity arises, so…this is just a long winded way of saying thank you for writing. Oh! also in spite of never having been alone with you, I somehow feel close to you and I’ve looked forward to and enjoyed those times, however brief, that we have been in the same general vicinity and spoken slightly (New York, Germany, Calif etc.) you know—so…

Pre-Bidding is January 15 – January 21. Live Bidding begins at 3 pm ET on January 22.
