This awesome vintage Star Wars t-shirt is from the year 1987, exactly ten years after the premiere of the first film in this beloved science fiction franchise. This shirt features a colorful celebratory graphic commemorating the ten year anniversary of Star Wars and it includes iconic quote "May the force be with you!"

There were several exciting events that took place throughout the year, to help mark this momentous anniversary and also to drum up excitement for the future of the franchise. To kick off the year, Disneyland opened their first Star Wars themed attraction, Star Tours. The motion simulator ride was the first attraction in the park to use something other than Disney-designed characters and imagery.

Later during the spring of that year, a very special Star Wars 10th anniversary convention was held in Los Angeles, California. The convention was held at the Stouffer Concourse Hotel, and not only did it feature an appearance from franchise creator George Lucas, but the creator of Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry was also in attendance, which lead to the only known photo of the two science fiction icons together. It was around this time, that Lucas sparked excitement among fans by announcing plans for a second trilogy. Eventually the first of the prequel trilogy, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace would premiere in 1999.
