Bootleg - US - Star Wars Vending Machine Stickers (1977)

Image

Issuing stickers in vending machines was quite popular during the late seventies and early eighties. This type of vending machine has even made a comeback today. Typically stickers were roughly the size of a trading card, and were inserted between a folded piece of cardboard to protect the sticker as it was distributed from the vending machine. Vending machines could be found at a number of locations popular with kids who attempted to complete full 'sets' of stickers. This set of eight different stickers was apparently a bootleg set not licensed by Lucasfilm. The quality of the stickers is very poor.

Although a bootleg item from the time of the original films, it is not uncommon to find these stickers in collections or being sold as part of odd-lots on eBay.

Thanks to my friend Andy for the sample image shown.
