Footnotes

  • Ram Rod spearheaded The Grateful Dead's sponsorship of the Lithuanian National Basketball Team when they participated in the 1992 Olympics. In honor of their sponsors, the team wore tie-dyed warm-up suits and jerseys as they played -- and they even won the bronze medal. This poster was commissioned for that sponsorship and the monies made from it, along with many thousands of dollars further contributed by the Dead, went to children's charities in Lithuania.
