DS, signed “Jerry Garcia” and “R. Weir,” eleven pages, 8.5 x 11, October 6, 1988. An agreement outlining details for a penthouse renovation at 213 West 70th Street in New York by which Garcia and Weir hire Gibco Builders, including “demolition…Intercom, Carpet, renovation of Public Corridors except as noted.” Document is housed in a binder with numerous other papers and documents related to the project, including a New York certificate of capital improvement, January 30, 1989, signed again by Bob Weir, “R. Weir.” Two additional documents are signed by Rock Scully, a longtime manager of the band. Expected document wear and tears to binding holes to the first page, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. Garcia and Weir first met on New Year's Eve 1963, befriending over a love of the Beatles and soon forming a band called Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions, which over time was renamed The Warlocks and, eventually, the Grateful Dead. An intriguing East Coast document that presents opportunity for further Dead research.
