One sheet PRINTER'S PROOF movie poster from 1992. This is the only proof for this poster we have ever seen!
Straight from a former employee of Gore Graphics. Gore was the company that originally printed these for the studio and NSS.The regular 1992 Fan Club one sheet was a limited edition printed in 1992 for The Star Wars Fan Club and had a serial number printed on the bottom border. This is a proof and has no serial number. Before a poster was printed in large quantities, the printer would print a limited number of test posters. They would leave the color bar chart on the edge of the poster which added an extra inch to the width of the poster.
These would then be shown to people in a position to "OK" them. Once they were approved, the final posters would be printed and the proofs normally were destroyed. A printer's proof is far more rare than a regular one sheet poster, and there is no fear of purchasing a reproduction. This poster is considered to be within that class and is definitely INVESTMENT QUALITY.There are no known reprints and / or reproductions of this 1992 Fan Club issued proof poster. We are absolutely certain it is authentic. Please read all of the information below before 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. 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. 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. 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. We only use the strongest packaging materials available. Rolled posters are put into a plastic sleeve and then placed in a HEAVY-DUTY thick walled 3" or 4" diameter plastic 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 on the ends to prevent them from getting damaged. We stamp FRAGILE: DO NOT BEND on the outside of the package. You must notify us before sending it back.Let us sell your posters for you! We guarantee that all posters we sell are graded and described accurately. Unless otherwise specified in the description, all posters are original theatrical movie posters that were displayed (gently used) or meant for display (unused) in theaters at the time the movies were released. We will put in writing that we guarantee it to be an original movie poster.
