Grade: C8-C9  Very Fine to Near Mint. Tri-folded, single-sided. Completely unused poster with only the most minimal handling/surface/edge where. Would grade higher if not for the slightest bit of ink loss on the trifolds, which is pretty much unavoidable for a paper stock with this level of gloss, and the slightest bit of rippling along the bottom from having been stored in frame for many years.

Framing: List prices are for posters only. Please inquire to discuss framing options.

Price: $1,750

This was the movie that set the mold for the modern summer blockbuster. While during this time frame it was common for other countries to use their own art for film posters, Roger Kastel’s iconic shark design was so impactful that it was used near universally (only a few exceptions in Eastern European). In fact, the original shark image was first designed for the paperback edition of Peter Benchley’s novel while Kastel was employed with Bantam Books — Universal was so taken with the design that it was used unchanged.

The amazing Kastel design on this US 1-sheet has elevated it to one of the most widely recognized and desirable posters in the history of the medium. This particular tri-folded example is in amazing unused condition.
