RARE " MOODY BLUE " STYLE B! Here's a BONA FIDE. ORIGINAL ROLLED NEVER-FOLDED 1980 NSS (National Screen Service) issued The Empire Strikes Back RARE MOODY BLUE STYLE "B" 22x28 inch Movie Poster Half-Sheet - Theater Lobby Display. This is one of the scarcest ORIGINAL US posters on The Empire Strikes Back.
Scholars have speculated that when this style "B" movie poster was originally produced at the National Screen Service back in 1980, they had problems with the color balance on this mostly all Vader design, resulting in this very RARE. Coloration on a small number of the 22x28 posters that were released. This is one of the few genuine originals sporting the blue-scape and Vader cape known to have survived. In my over 40 years of collecting, this fine example is definitely the best condition original that I've ever seen!Over the past four decades, a rumor has grown throughout the Star Wars collecting community that workers at the National Screen Service actually rendered this fantastic anomaly on purpose to honor another cape wearing legend, the late Elvis Presley, King of Rock "N" Roll, in 1980, just three years after he had sadly passed away at his home at Graceland. Now, with a few greenbacks, this blue beauty can be yours, or better yet - it can be a great baby shower gift for a bouncing baby boy to hang on his brand new freshly painted blue-walled room. Dealer integrity is always IMPORTANT! I admit my prices are somewhat advanced, but the service and guarantee I provide is equally advanced. It more than makes up for what appears not to be a bargain price. I say "appears" because it's my sincere belief that it's a bargain to be certain in what you're getting. Certainty is what all the fuss is about when it comes to certifications on autographs, baseball cards, and, comic books. It's what all three of those collectible industries solely rely on. Other dealer in the country that can say the same! I'm a well-known expert.
I fully designed and authored a Star Wars poster-collecting guide back in 1999 - It was published by Butterfields. I'm credited in the front of the guide. I offer that guide with some of my listings see a photo of it in my listing with the.STAR WARS'77 MINI-WINDOW TEASER MOVIE POSTERS.

Acid-Free Museum Paper-Mounted for Preservation & Presentation! THIS IS 100% GUARANTEED ORIGINAL RARE 1980 PRINTING. I ONLY sell genuine rare originals. Please check my feedback comments and other listings. This poster was in SOLID NearMINT Condition before I had it museum-mounted. It was ROLLED & NEVER FOLDED! I had it Museum Conservation Paper-Mounted to deacidify the poster and preserve it for presentation. It worked like a charm because the poster is perfect!! It's now flat as a pancake (NO CURL) - even flatter! I used the best conservator in the USA. He ONLY uses high-grade materials. The better materials cost more but make a real difference in the end result. I've posted direct high-resolution scans of the actual poster you'll be getting, so you can see just how terrific this rare display truly is! LINEN-MOUNTING & CONSERVATION PAPER BACKING. 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 mounted posters because it makes framing and displaying the posters much easier. The white you see in the photo beyond that of the poster is the white of the Acid-Free paper lining the original poster's 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 backed posters have been stored FLAT so they DO NOT have a curl to them - They're ready for framing and display!THIS POSTER WILL BE PROFESSIONALLY PACKAGED.
