If you happen to catch Antiques Roadshow last night, you may have seen collector Matt Gibson get an early Star Wars printing block appraised at $300-400!

An extremely rare piece, this particular block was used to print ads for Dolby’s new six-track stereo system, a breakthrough in theatrical sound presentation that Star Wars helped to make popular. Ads printed from this block appeared as early as December, 1976, in industry trade magazines such as Boxoffice.
