Important Added Info: Note that this is an extremely rare poster! We have never auctioned this style in all our years of auctioning. Note also that this poster is not marked, but it is NOT the style B poster, and since we know that there IS a style B poster on this title, we assume that this poster is the style A, so we are referring to it in that fashion.

Note that this item needs to be shipped in an oversized flat package. Most of these items absolutely can only be sent in flat packages, and could not possibly be rolled into a tube. Some of them might SEEM like they could be rolled in a tube, like a half-sheet, but they can't. The reason these items are in this auction is specifically because they CAN'T be rolled (because rolling any of them would damage them, even if they somehow can be rolled). So please bear in mind that this item must be sent in a LARGE flat package (the size of the package will depend on the size of the item when ready for shipping), and bear this added expense in mind before placing a bid on it.

Condition: poor to fair. The poster has been glued to a heavy, stiff board. It has slight discoloration scattered in some areas from exposure to moisture, wear along the folds and it has slightly faded. There are a few creases and scuff marks scattered in various areas. Please see our super-sized image to get a good sense of the condition of this item and please bear in mind that this item is glued to a heavy, stiff board prior to placing a bid.
