THE ULTIMATE STAR WARS CHRISTMAS GIFT! THE STAR WARS CHRISTMAS ALBUM – ADVERTISING ONLY – STORE DISPLAY MOVIE POSTER! It’s by far the ultimate Star Wars Christmas gift of all time! This 1980 original poster was rendered by the now legendary Ralph McQuarrie back in 1980 to advertise The Star Wars Christmas Album during the first run of The Empire Strikes Back while it was still in the cinemas. Many consider this the single best piece of McQuarrie poster art. The mixture of classic Star Wars characters and St. Nick rival the charm of the John Alvin Star Wars Concert Poster, which was issued two years prior to this. Interestingly, the album this poster is advertising is the very first album. RARITY SIZE AND CONDITION. This poster is more than a tough one to find. In over 40 years of collecting Star Wars, I’ve seen less than half a dozen of these come up. The poster was designed and printed WITHOUT a white border. They call that a full “Bleed” in the advertising industry. It makes it much harder to handle a poster if it’s a full Bleed, and so I had this poster museum linen-mounted to protect it and to make it easy to frame. NearMINT ROLLED-NEVER FOLDED CONDITION! It only had a couple of dings and such. I used the best conservator in the USA. He ONLY uses high-grade materials, such as thicker linen and thicker acid-free Japanese rice paper. The better materials cost more but make a real difference in the end result. It’s flat as a pancake and as clean as can be. 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 – ESPECIALLY on borderless posters. As I pointed out, this poster was made without a white border. The white you see in the photo 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 ready for framing and display! If you’re looking for an investment/museum quality item. Original Music Mark Hamill…. Luke Skywalker Harrison Ford…. Han Solo Carrie Fisher…. Princess Leia Organa Peter Cushing…. Grand Moff Tarkin Alec Guinness…. Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi Anthony Daniels…. Darth Vader James Earl Jones…. 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 ECONOMY PROOF! FOR MOST ITEMS LISTED.
