Star Wars ROTJ opening day "golden ticket" t-shirt

Post by bodhi » Thu Mar 14, 2013 2:37 pm

Hey guys, I saw these photos on a Star Wars forum I frequent (I collect vintage toys), thought I'd share it here.

The t-shirt was issued in tiny quantities to winners of a Denver-area radio station promotion and would get you in to see Return of the Jedi on the day it opened. You had to wear the shirt to the premiere to get in, "golden ticket" style. Along with the shirt, there's a photo from a local news article about the premiere, showing several people wearing the same tee.

Seeing that Blue Harvest t-shirt featured in the blog reminded me to post this :)

That is fantastic! I saw one of those pop up on ebay awhile back and I now wished I would have gotten it.

I just listed one of these "golden ticket" t shirts on eBay in a youth size medium. Interesting back story about it here. In fact, I think one of the people in the photo is related. Thanks for the info posted here.
