Souvenirs: The Star Wars Travel Postcards

These postcards from 2001 are among my favorite attraction-themed souvenirs. I misplaced them a few years ago, and was excited when they resurfaced during our recent housecleaning and remodeling projects. Star Wars has always been rooted in retro and so marrying the Star Tours attraction with the style of vintage travel posters made for some very dynamic and fun designs.

Those are fantastic postcards. They would make great framed presents for a Disney/Star Wars nerd that you might know!

Funny you should say that. Here's my framed Star Tours postcards my Wife gave me for my birthday a few years ago!

Does not include the Naboo one... lousy prequels.

In addition to these postcards there was also a round/foil Star Tours postcard with the slogan "THE LEADER IN GALACTIC SIGHTSEEING" printed around the upper half of its circular form, with an X-wing escorting a Star tours ship in its swoosh past the Star Tours logo in the center of the card, and the death star hovering in the left-hand background

pretty sweet! With all the naysaying of the prequel trilogy, I have to say...the Naboo card may be the coolest!
