From the CineMasterpieces archive.This is what all you STAR WARS fans have been waiting for! This is a genuine 26" x 104" U.S. Theater Banner ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display.HTML clipboardThere are estimated to be less than 10 surviving theater lobby banners from Star Wars. These can be very difficult to find in any condition! A long time can go by without one of these coming up for sale. You will have trouble finding a nicer one. CONDITION/GRADE: C8-C9
Not in perfect condition.
Light water stain on bottom right. This may or may not be easy to clean (we have not tried). Well preserved.If a vintage poster is in terrific unrestored condition like this one (EX C8 or better), many experienced collectors will place a premium on it (when compared to a linen backed/restored one). Most experienced collectors prefer unrestored items to restored ones because they believe they will appreciate more in value. When buying collectibles it is always wise to buy "the best of the best" as they stand a greater chance of appreciation. This poster is considered to be within that class and is definitely INVESTMENT QUALITY. This is NOT a reprint or reproduction banner! It is a REAL ORIGINAL MOVIE LOBBY BANNER issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display. We are absolutely certain it is authentic.Buy with confidence. We have been on eBay since 1998. SHIPPING
Please see the very bottom of this listing for all shipping options. We use super strong hi-quality packaging materials including thick cardboard, masonite, and costly pvc plastic pipe. All posters are shipped insured and guaranteed to arrive safely. We will combine shipping for multiple wins/purchases at no extra charge!
Please read all of the information below before bidding/purchasing.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. They were shipped to theaters this way. Vintage rolled posters do exist, however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster Linen Backed 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 Linen Backing service please contact us. 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. Many who buy them don't know they have been taken. They only discover years later when they sell them that they are worthless. Most are from popular movies from the 70's and 80’s, 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! For more information please see our EBAY GUIDES link above. We grade our posters according to the Iguide Universal 10-Point Movie Poster Grading Scale. 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.
C7 Very Good to Excellent - Fine condition. 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.For details on this grading system please see our Ebay Guide GRADING / 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. WE WILL COMBINE SHIPPING AT NO EXTRA CHARGE
FOR MULTIPLE PURCHASES
It is usually possible to ship folded and rolled posters together in one package by rolling the folded ones and shipping them all in one tube. Sometimes it isn't possible to do this. Sometimes we can't roll a folded poster. If this is the case then we must split your wins/purchases into two separate packages and you will be charged for a second shipment.
All wins/purchases must be paid for within 7 days. If you would like us to wait for you to accumulate several posters and have them shipped all together so you can save on shipping, please send us a separate email containing your name, your eBay id, and eBay listing number(s) and we will hold your items until you tell us to ship them. Please note that if we hold your items for longer than 30 days they will NOT BE RETURNABLE. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT RETURNS IN THIS SITUATION. OUR RETURN POLICY (see below) WILL NOT APPLY.
We offer either USPS Express or Priority Mail Shipping.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND USPS EXPRESS MAIL
FOR SHIPMENTS OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.
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!) on the ends to prevent them from getting damaged. We stamp “FRAGILE: DO NOT BEND” on the outside of the package. EUROPEAN CUSTOMERS PLEASE READ
To protect ourselves, we insure expensive items for the FULL AMOUNT. Import Duties for the European Union apply to any item bought overseas whether or not we list it as a gift on the shipping manifest. In the U.K. for example, they apply to any gift over £35 and to any item that is not a gift over £18. These costs can be quite substantial and include a Value added Tax and a Parcel Force Clearance Fee. These combined charges can add up to 25% or more to your final cost. For other European countries the charges will differ. Please check with your postal system on their procedure for packages from overseas so you are not unpleasantly surprised. NON U.S. CUSTOMERS WE WILL NO LONGER SHIP FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL AIRMAIL WITHOUT INSURANCE
Our experience has shown that packages shipped this way can easily get lost and/or sometimes take several weeks to arrive.
YOU MAY RETURN THIS ITEM FOR ANY REASON WITHIN 14 DAYS OF RECEIPT FOR A FULL REFUND.
We have an open and easy return policy so you can buy from us with confidence. In the unlikely event you are unhappy with your purchase, please notify us immediately. YOU MAY RETURN IT FOR ANY REASON (unless it is damaged in shipment, see below) WITHIN 14 DAYS OF RECEIVING IT (safely packaged & insured) FOR A FULL REFUND of the purchase price (less shipping), no questions asked! You must notify us before sending it back. Items must be in the same condition as originally sent to you or return policy does not apply. If it is damaged in shipment, DO NOT RETURN IT TO US AND DO NOT WORRY. THIS IS WHY WE USE INSURANCE. This is extremely rare, but it does occasionally happen. If this happens, please take some digital photos of the damage and email it to us, then give us a call and we will remedy the situation. If you win a non linen backed poster and choose to have us linen back it for you, the poster is not returnable for a refund. It is however returnable for FULL CREDIT towards the purchase of other posters from us.
All wins/purchases must be paid for within 7 days.
