Remembering Irvin Kershner

Many Star Wars fans were sadden when they heard the news that Irvin Kershner had passed away.  Kershner was the director of The Empire Strikes Back, which is one of the darkest films in the series.


Kershner has a handful of cards, including a few autographs.  Probably the card that most collectors want to have in their collection would be the 2009 Topps The Empire Strikes Back wide-vision autograph.  Finding signatures within this product are extremely rare and collectors pay hefty amounts for any of them.  The Kershner is worth about $400.00, maybe more.

  1. I feel blessed to have actually watched and gotten into the original versions of all three of the original series. I’m actually probably young enough to where I would have only seen the Lucas-fucked versions and gotten into the prequels instead. Luckily, my parents were fans of good cinema and bought the older VHS’s.
    And yes, Empire is without a doubt the best.
