Mail Order Monday - Star Wars Stationary

I found this ad thanks to Gilligan, webmaster over at Retrospace, which is a great portal into our past. He recently posted a couple of magazine scans, one of which was a random scifi zine called Space Wars from December 1978.

This is typical of the strange non-licensed stuff you'd find in the back pages of magazines at the time. The knockoff merchandise has always interested me as a collector. It'd be cool to see what these items looked like from a time before home computers were common and people still used stationary for letter writing. Very curious to see what the Stormtrooper and Jedi Knight diplomas looked like.
