Instead, he and George Lucas created their own action hero, and ultimately one of the most successful films of all time. The document is in Very Fine to Excellent condition with very mild tanning, some handwritten notations in pencil on the front page, and staple and punch holes along the top edge. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
