This iconic Star Wars image was signed by Darth Vader himself, also known as the actor Dave Prowse, on October 15, 2014 in London. Dave has added the famous Darth Vader line: May The Force Be With You. The first Star Wars film was released in May 1977, becoming a huge worldwide success. Darth Vader is one of the most iconic characters in the film. Originally a Jedi prophesied to bring balance to the Force, he falls to the dark side of the Force and serves the evil Galactic Empire at the right hand of his Sith master, Palpatine. He is also the father of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa. The American Film Institute listed him as the third greatest movie villain in cinema history, behind Hannibal Lecter and Norman Bates.
All our signed memorabilia is supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by a company director. It features a numbered hologram that matches an identical hologram affixed to your product, and details of when and where the product was signed. Our company number and details are included on the certificate.
Each certificate includes, where possible and in the vast majority of cases, a photo of the sportspeople or celebrity signing one of the product line at the relevant signing session. For logistical reasons it is impossible to photograph every product being signed, but showing that the sportsperson or celebrity was present and signing items is, we believe, the best way to demonstrate the legitimacy of your products.
Numbered security hologram
Your certificate will come with a numbered security hologram, which will correspond to a matching, identically numbered hologram on your product. This ensures that the certificate can only be used to authenticate the item for which there is a corresponding number. If anyone attempts to remove either hologram it will destruct, so it is impossible to transfer the holograms to other items.
