    Return of the Jedi (20th Century Fox, 1983). Rolled, Very Fine. British Full-Bleed 12 Sheet (120.5" X 60") Josh Kirby Artwork.
    One of only three complete copies known to exist, this extremely rare British 12 sheet found its way to a London school in 1983 after the film's release, meant to be used as scrap paper for arts and crafts. Thankfully one of the teaching staff recognized that this impressive, larger-than-life poster deserved a better fate. Over 30 years later, the explosive piece makes its auction debut at Heritage and is not an opportunity to be missed by any Star Wars fan. Stunning when displayed, this magnificent full-bleed poster boasts incredible artwork by Josh Kirby, one of the best illustrations created for the film. In excellent condition, it shows only slight edge wear, pinholes, and mild creasing. There are minor tears at the edges and a very small chip in one of the panel overlaps. However, once assembled and displayed this chip will not be visible or interfere with the poster's awe-inspiring image. Rolled, Very Fine.

    Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
