Here's one of the most interesting and important Star Wars advertising pieces. An Original 1983 "Return of the Jedi" Kenner Store Display Contest Poster. How to win EVERY Kenner Action Figure and toy issued on the film! I wonder if any of the lucky 55 winners still have that handsome haul?I bet none of them have this poster! If you're one of them, this would be a great time to pick it up, as Kenner advertising pieces from the 1980's are now going for prices that are out-of-sight!! I've priced this scarce poster display at a fraction of what many other - much less attractive - Kenner pieces have recently auctioned for. Few Star Wars Kenner advertising posters were ever produced, only a handful, as Kenner primarily issued cardboard advertising displays to the stores and NOT paper posters. This beauty is a happy exception. Measures 20 by 16 inches and. Was originally issued folded inside of the cartons that were carrying the supplies of toys to the stores. 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 is a full Bleed, and so I had this poster museum linen-mounted to get the fold out and to make it easy to frame. 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. LINEN-MOUNTING 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 borderless (no 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. Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi Anthony Daniels.... 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.
