This is a HUGE poster that is printed on ridiculously thin paper. This example has no pinholes nicks cuts tears or restoration of any kind. There are some light signs of handling that come with the territory when discussing a poster of this size. Other examples that have been graded “Mint” have recently traded over $4 000. This example just under the Mint category offers maximum value for your collecting dollar!

Condition Details – This incredibly thin and large sized poster never shows up in this condition. What is considered “near mint” on a normal sized poster would be considered Mint Condition for a larger poster of this size. There is light edgewear creasing on the right edge. There are several spider creases on the top and bottom edges and there is a bottom left corner crease. There are no nicks cuts tears pinholes or restoration of any kind.

Note: Due to the size of this poster and PAE's insistance that the poster must be shipped flat  The poster will be  certified and  sealed in archival Mylar for an additional $20 surcharge. Shipping will be calculated accordingly.
