MUST HAVE STAR WARS! FOR THE ELITE STAR WARS POSTER COLLECTOR! Here A BONA FIDE ORIGINAL 1978 Star Wars Style “D” one sheet Color-Bar Printer’s Test Proof: This style “D” Star Wars one-sheet is one of the most famous movie posters ever designed. Star Wars originally opened in May of 1977 on just 32 theater screens worldwide. It played continually for more than a year straight to record-breaking crowds in extremely limited release. After that extended “roadshow play, ” Fox decided to go wide with Star Wars in the summer of 1978, expanding the number of theaters by the hundreds. The ongoing poster campaign was renewed by issuing this amazing style “D” artwork. There was finally time to execute the poster George Lucas had originally envisioned but couldn’t deliver by the films rushed 1977 opening. Two artists, Charles White III and Drew Struzan, were commissioned. This style D artwork was the result. THIS RARE PRINTER’S TEST PROOF WAS THE FIRST OF THEM EVER PRINTED! IT’S MINT/NearMINT ROLLED NEVER FOLDED CONDITION! This is a genuine original! Rolled original Style “D” one-sheets are pretty tough to get on their own, but a test proof is unheard of. Unlike the common style “C” test proofs which you see all over the internet, this poster is actually RARE! Also, this poster is MINT/NearMINT ROLLED NEVER FOLDED CONDITION! There’s no way you could find a better one. That’s – if – you could even find one at all. This poster is in such great shape that I had it museum Linen-mounted by the best conservator in the USA to de-acidify it and to conserve, or preserve, the poster into staying this way. NO QUESTION this is the last stop for the style “D, ” as it gets no better than this! Check out the High-Res scans. ALSO – Notice the yellow printer’s cut line on photo #5. This is a telltale sign that this was an “intended” proof vs. An “intended” proof is where they specifically were making a proof to determine press reediness or to get final approval from the client. An unintended proof is where something goes wrong during the run and the press is stopped and then uncut posters become a side result. This was actually made to be a proof. I got it from the pressman directly! This poster is UNCUT and measures 28 and 3/4 by 41 inches. A regular issued cut style “D” one-sheet is 27×41 inches. WITH the extra protective linen margin this piece in its totality measures 30 and 1/2 by 42 and 1/2 inches. Is an accepted form of poster preservation by the Library of Congress and every Museum in the country. A lot of advanced poster buyers request and prefer linen-mounted posters because it makes framing and displaying the posters much easier – without the risk of damaging the original. The white you see in. Beyond that of the poster – is the white of the Japanese paper lining the linen border margin. You can see how easy it would be to damage the original poster without that extra margin of protection. The backing makes the poster much safer to handle – it GREATLY reduces the risk of damaging the original. Also, all of my linen-backed posters have been stored FLAT so they DO NOT have a curl to them – They’re all ready for framing and display! If you’re looking for an investment/museum quality item. Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi Anthony Daniels…. It can crash regardless of any decision you make and can even crash regardless of any decision made by the company related to the stock – Leaving you with a near worthless piece of paper that won’t inspire anyone! The magnificence of art and historic documents have an inherent value that relates to civilization and society. This poster is definitely. FOR MOST ITEMS LISTED. Please write with any questions.

The Style C was originally printed for international distribution only, so there is no NSS info. (A handful were printed with a PG ratings box for special US engagements). Some criminals now are folding them to make them appear more “authentic”. It is very difficult to find an original style C. THEY ARE EXTREMELY RARE! Less than 1000 were issued (some say less than 500) and many have not survived. Sometime during the 1980′s there were many thousands of these that were illegally re-printed. The prints are so good that it is believed that the forgers somehow got their hands on the original printing plates. The fake is darker, the writing on the bottom border is thicker, and there is a “hair” on the back of the princess. On originals there are pinkish red clouds around Han’s and Leia’s blasters, on the fake there is barely anything. This poster is NOT FRAMED.

You may be willing to take the risk to save a few dollars, but we are not. We use super strong hi-quality packaging materials including thick cardboard, masonite, and costly pvc plastic tubes. And guaranteed to arrive safely. Please be advised that over 95% of all Original Movie Posters. Printed before the mid 1980′s were issued FOLDED. This is NOT considered a defect. Vintage rolled posters do exist, however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster. Which will make the fold lines virtually disappear. Also please note that most movie posters were actually used at the theater, and some will contain slight imperfections such as: writing on the back, pin holes, fold wear, small tears, etc. These are all very common and to be expected, but if they bother you, all these minor flaws can be remedied in the linen backing process. Linen Backing preserves and can actually increase the value of a poster. For the most part, any flaws will be fixed and the poster will appear to be in Near Mint condition. For more information about our. We do not always measure all of our posters exactly. Unless otherwise specified, poster measurements quoted above are approximate to the nearest inch. For example, if we say a one sheet poster is 27″ x 41″ its precise measurements may be closer to 26 3/4″ x 40 7/8″ (or something similar). This slight variance is quite common for all original movie posters. BEWARE OF “FAKE” MOVIE POSTERS! There are fakes, bootlegs, reprints, and reproductions of almost every popular movie poster. WE DO NOT SELL THESE AS ORIGINALS LIKE OTHERS DO! There are many unscrupulous dealers who successfully pass off these posters as originals. They have been doing it for years! These fakes are almost indistinguishable from originals, only experts can tell. They only discover years later when they sell them that they are worthless. Most are from popular movies from the 70′s and 80s, but there are also really old ones and relatively new ones as well. They usually appear in insert size 14″ x 36″ and one sheet size 27″ x 41″. Again, all we can say is BEWARE! We grade our posters according to the Iguide Universal 10-Point Movie Poster Grading Scale. Almost all of our inventory is graded at least C8 Excellent or better. C10 Mint – Investment quality. No perceptible flaws of any kind. C9 Near Mint – Investment quality. Minor flaw on an otherwise unused poster. C8 Excellent – Investment quality. A few minor defects. Pin holes, small tears, etc. C7 Very Good to Excellent – Fine. Still a very nicely preserved item. C6 Very Good – The typical used poster in average condition. C5 Good to Very Good – A heavily-worn item. C4 Good – Below average but still suitable for display. C3 Fair – Heavily worn, but yet still complete. C2 Poor to Fair – An extremely worn, possibly even incomplete item. C1 Poor – The lowest grade, representing items in the lowest possible condition. Some of our posters are “between grades”. For example, a C8-C9 poster will contain all the qualities/characteristics of a Near Mint C9 except for one or two very minor flaws that we believe prevent it from being a true C9. Sometimes it isn’t possible to do this. Sometimes we can’t roll a folded poster. Please note that if we hold your items for longer than 30 days they will NOT BE RETURNABLE. WE TAKE EXTRA SPECIAL CARE WHEN WE PACKAGE YOUR ITEMS. Folded posters are placed in a plastic bag or envelope and in between STRONG pieces of cardboard and taped together before being placed in the package. Rolled posters are put into a plastic sleeve and then placed in a HEAVY-DUTY TOUGH 3 or 4 diameter thick walled PVC tube. We roll the poster into a smaller diameter than the tube. This is VERY IMPORTANT because it gives the edges strength and helps to prevent them from getting wrinkled. We add soft cushioning material also very important!
