Wow, A not fully sealed and faded Star Wars Digest going for over 200.I never seen them go this high, Who would ever thought. No doubt it was a Star Wars collector wanting something vintage from the first film, bid and won it.This will probably never be played. This seller must be dancing

Gee Brian , although it states new old stock , sealed , there is no mention of it being faded BUT I have gotten Ken film prints that were never opened or played and still had the original tape on the film ( which had to be scrapped off ) and the film had turned to " Eastman shift " color without air hitting it .
But what can you expect after 40 years ??

In my case fast approaching 60 I've gone somewhat hairless never mind red😉

Have a few films I have left sealed from the 70s, it's all about nostalgia tho and not money.

Oh so true, Lee.

Now, if that "Rocky" print goes for 200.00, that's a very fair price for that feature!

Well, it looks like Star Wars is a collector item! No matter what the condition? I have a couple prints by ken films! So I better hold on to them!
