THIS IS PERHAPS ONE OF THE RAREST PROMOTIONAL STAR WARS POSTERS OUT THERE! Planet of Pop is proud to present this absolutely AMAZING FIND! This is perhaps one of the most sought after non-studio issued promo posters for the first Star Wars film: Episode IV A New Hope, from 1977!This is a 100% authentic, vintage benefit premiere poster created for a special screening of George Lucas' first installment in the original Star Wars trilogy, sponsored by the Memorial Hospital Foundation located in Modesto, CA (George Lucas' hometown) which took place on July 1, 1977. If you're a Star Wars collector, then you understand the importance of this poster and significance of this event (subsequent Star Wars films have had premiere's sponsored by the Memorial Hospital foundation - this was the FIRST)! See info on this poster at The Star Wars Archive Database as well. The film's title is printed on top in a curved arch shape and the words "Premiere by Memorial Hospital Foundation" are on the bottom. Only an EXTREMELY LIMITED number of these posters were most likely printed - incredible that a handful of these have survived! It is my understanding that Steve Sansweet, longtime Star Wars fan/collector and now chairman and president of Rancho Obi-Wan (a nonprofit museum that houses the world's largest collection of Star Wars memorabilia) has one of these elusive posters in his own collection. For the Star Wars fan/collector who has everything - this is an absolute must-have addition to your collection! ONLY AN EXTREMELY SMALL QTY AVAILABLE!! ONLY A HANDFUL OF STAR WARS COLLECTORS WILL BE ABLE TO OWN ONE OF THESE TREASURES!! ONCE GONE, THEY ARE TRULY GONE FOR GOOD!
