Item Description
22x28-1/8" cardboard by "Murry Poster Printing Co." advertising a concert at "Worcester Memorial Auditorium Saturday November 14 At 8:30 PM." Listing 15 acts including "The Supremes" w/their international hit single "Baby Love" and a photo of Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard on top row at right. An 11" tall by less than 2" wide loss along lower left affecting images. Three pin holes; two in margin at center on each side and one at top center. About 20 staple holes contained mostly to margins w/one set in the field above 'Supremes". Diagonal trimming of top corners that does not affect the image along w/moderate handling wear. A .75x.5" loss intersecting w/1" tear affecting the lower right corner and image. Also of note are printing anomalies to the images of "Brian Hyland" and "Jimmy Ford." Good because of loss but otherwise displaying VG w/bold colors. The only other example we have encountered was from an earlier date w/The Supremes listed near the bottom and featuring a less notable single. This is the only example known featuring the group along the top line of stars. "Baby Love" was their second #1 hit and remains their most iconic song. That single was still sitting at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart on the day of the show. The Supremes exploded in 1964 shedding their industry nickname the 'No-hit Supremes' transforming into major hitmakers w/consecutive #1 US hits "Baby Love," "Come See About Me," "Stop! In The Name Of Love" and "Back In My Arms Again." At this point they were as popular as the Beatles and would go on to become the most commercially successful Motown act.
