The 16 inch x 12 inch mini-poster is special as it includes the signatures of the three main Star Wars characters Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia). It's very rare to see the three sign together.

The poster also has autographs of Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Denis Lawson (Wedge), John Morton (Jak), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett), Kenny Baker (R2D2), Ken Colley (Admiral Piett), Gary Kurtz Producer), Julian Glover (General Veers), Dave Prowse (Darth Vader) and Anthony Daniels (C3PO).

Each signature was obtained over a 30 year period at various sci-fi conventions, with the Harrison Ford signature also having a Beckett Witness Certificate, meaning it was signed in the presence of a Beckett employee, rather than just authenticated by them.

The Star Wars - Props, Autographs & Memorabilia sale takes place on 2nd September and includes personal items from the collections of Dave Prowse and Jeremy Bulloch, including Prowse's collection of Star Wars action figures with estimates of £50 - £80 each.

Star Wars memorabilia has been in the news recently with an original movie flown X-Wing fighter model selling for $2,750,000.

Whilst Han Solo's BlasTech DL-44 Heavy Blaster gun is expected to sell for $500,000+ at Rock Island Auctions later this month.
