A piece of Star Wars history

Here's a chance to own a rare piece of Star Wars memorabilia! This 1977 20X28 poster was painted by the Hildebrandt brothers to promote the upcoming film. Originals are incredibly rare and valuable, but a stash of 300 from the first printing run was recently found stored away with the original printer in Pennsylvania. These posters have now been signed and numbered by Greg Hildebrandt (the surviving brother), who has also added a hand-drawn sketch of Darth Vader to each one. They sell for $300 each, a steep price, but worth it considering what mint posters usually sell for unsigned, and this signed and numbered edition has a great sketch added.
