The 1980's: If you're lucky enough to remember way back then - over three decades ago - you might remember the initial swell of interest in Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and, the 1983 original release of Return of the Jedi. That's what's advertised on this amazing litho - a contest to see the final chapter in the Star Wars trilogy, The Return of the Jedi - FREE! If you were alive at the time, you'll remember it was when "video gaming" basically meant Atari. It was also a time when the movies meant Star Wars! The four products advertised on this more than rare poster were all smack dab center of it all - all, meaning the entertainment world.This poster reminds me a lot of them. It's classic nostalgia and pop culture at its very best. This poster was made solely for advertising purposes.
It would hang in those stores who offered the Atari products. In fact, in my nearly 40 years of collecting Star Wars posters, I've only seen two originals hit the market. This is one of the seminal Star Wars movie posters and product advertising displays one can find.
This Star Wars / Atari / Intellivision poster was issued approximately 17x23.5 inches. The poster is in ROLLED NEVER-FOLDED NearMINT CONDITION! It was found in a tube, after more than 30 years of protected storage.I had the poster linen-mounted to flatten it out and to preserve this extraordinary beauty. It worked like a charm, because the poster came out FANTASTIC!! 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. It's quite an eye-catching display. If you own one of these vintage machines this poster is a MUST!
DIRECT HIGH-RES SCANS OF THE ACTUAL POSTER YOU'LL BE GETTING! 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. The white you see in the photo (see picture #4) 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!
