Toy Area Header Card -'Toy Center' Die Cut

Measuring some 40 inches in total length, the above-pictured header card is the largest Kenner display issued for the original Star Wars series. It is also one of the scarcest. Offered in 1979, the "Toy Center" header features graphics similar to the "Toy Center" bell hanger issued that same year, both signs employing space-themed images and prominent yellow writing. The graphics on the header are comprised of a squad of TIE fighters zooming out of one corner, and a formation of X-Wings advancing from another to meet them, as well as numerous explosions. The sign is double-sided, featuring the same image on both sides, and was intended to be hung, not mounted, from two holes which were factory-punched near each of its corners.
