Info: About Star Wars/Lucasfilm Fan Club stuff

I had a quick question I wanted to ask everyone.

But first, a little background info.

I was a member of the original Star Wars/Lucasfilm Fan Club at the age of 4.
I still have my Banthatracks newsletters and most of the stuff I got through the club (of all the things to lose…my membership card). I even had an old order form (I’d love to try sending it in…see if I can get the old membership fee rate of $5.95 for a year )
Anyways, one of the things I got, for free, through them, was a motion card. A motion _post_card, really.
It contained 6-8 frames of footage from Return of the Jedi.
I’m curious to see if anyone else has one of these. I’ve never known someone that did, and I have to wonder how rare it might be.
Mine (and I don’t know if they were all the same) was from the lightsaber duel between Luke and Vader. Perhaps I can scan it.

Please scan it. That sounds pretty cool. I should find and scan the keychain I have from ROTJ. It's pretty one of a kind as well. Same with my die cast Yoda pendant and necklace (still carded, though beat to hell).

The back says:
LUKE SKYWALKER duels DARTH VADER inside the DEATH STAR THRONE ROOM.
This motion card is made from eighteen frames of footage from RETURN OF THE JEDI.

Interesting. You ever see it online listed for sale? If so, how much was the seller asking for it?

No I haven't. Wish I had though. I would be interested in seeing what it is worth, even if I have no plans of selling it.
