Though not the priciest "Star Wars" poster in the galaxy, this Episode VI one-sheet is the most infamous and widely bootlegged. Before the 1983 release of "Return of the Jedi," the movie was briefly re-titled "Revenge of the Jedi." The studio printed nearly 9,000 posters with that title and began shipping them to theaters.
In late '82, George Lucas decided the word "Revenge" was unbefitting of a peaceful Jedi knight, so he reverted to the original "Return." The previously shipped posters were recalled, while the 6,800 copies still on hand were sold via mail order to Star Wars Fan Club members for $9.50 each.
Today, the fan club posters (tag-lined with the movie's May 25, 1983 release date) can fetch up to $2,000 in pristine condition. The rarer version shipped to cinemas, lacking the release date, can net $3,000 and up. But buyer beware. The market is flooded with fakes.
