Official Star Wars Fan Club Ad from Early 1978

I think I might have joined the Star Wars Fan Club through an ad like this back in the day, but I have no material proof that I did, so maybe it was only in my dreams. If I did, I figure I would still have that Membership Card. Sadly, I do not.

What I love about this ad is that they refer to Princess Leia as “the Princess Leia”. That is exactly the type of thing that my Grandmother would say about anything I was into.

Oh are you playing “the Atari?” Do you want to go see “the Star Wars?”

I am pretty sure she did not do it on purpose, but it is something I have tried to emulate as I have gotten older.


Here is a similar ad (same price) from 1980. Post Empire Strikes Back.
