Raiders of the Lost Ark Memorabilia - Part 1

Back in the late 70's early 80's (if you were a card carrying member of the Star Wars Fan Club, and I was) you would have received a flyer in the mail announcing the release of "Raiders of the Lost Ark." And yes I did say mail, you have to remember this was the dark ages. Before the interweb and electronic mail there was only the pony express and the occasional mailman!
Here is the front of the flyer:

And here's the back:

And yes I did save the envelope too:

The Star Wars Fan Club also gave you an opportunity to purchase an original Raiders One Sheet. All you had to do was mail in a SASE with a check for a whopping $7.00 plus shipping & handling. Then wait patiently for the men and women of the US Post Office to complete their appointed rounds and... five months after the premiere of Raiders you would have your very own "Raiders of the Lost Ark" One Sheet! So, do you wanna see it? Guess you're gonna have to wait like I did!
