A very rare 1978 Star Wars Corporation UK Christmas holiday card.
Ralph McQuarrie's initial Lucasfilm holiday card illustration appeared on this very rare greetings card which was distributed by the Star Wars Corporation (the production company created to make Star Wars) at Elstree studios in 1978.
The Corporation was readying The Empire Strikes Back production and such greetings cards would only have been sent to selected members of the cast and crew working on production.
The Card is clearly dedicated on the inside to a credited member of the Crew and additionally boldly signed by Gary Kurtz, the Producer of both 'Star Wars' and 'The Empire Strikes Back'.
The back of the Card exhibits remnants of old glue residue but otherwise remains in overall fine condition.
