1977 STAR WARS STORE DISPLAY!! Here's one of the greatest EARLY Star Wars campaigns launched to cross advertise the film! In 1977, early on, before Star Wars was first released, Lucasfilm and Fox had a very hard time getting merchandising products to tie-in with the release. Wonder Bread brand was one of the only companies to sign on, along with Toyota and Ken Films Super-8 home products. Needless to say - once the film came out and became a sensation - a title wave of other companies joined in.

This particular surviving pair was saved in MINT/NearMINT UNUSED ORIGINAL CONDITION! They were not used and are as nice as they can be! The pole sign measures 24x12 inches and the shelf talker is 18x5 inches.Both are printed on PAPER. ARTWORK RENDERED BY: Legendary Poster artist John Van Hamersveld.
