Jar-Jar Binks Postcard signed by Ahmed Best

Who is this? Jar-Jar Binks, voiced by actor Ahmed Best
What is this? An autographed 8x10 postcard of Jar-Jar Binks from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
Where'd I get it? I got it signed at the Big Apple Comic Con
How much did it cost? $25.

Why is this so special? I grew up with the original Star Wars films, and I was disappointed by the prequel trilogy. However, in the 10+ years since The Phantom Menace was originally released, it has grown on me.

Love him or hate him, Jar-Jar Binks is a big part of that film. Until recently, Best had stayed away from the convention circuit. I can't blame him, really - Jar-Jar provokes a strong reaction in people. I'm glad that he's giving it a shot again now.

Ahmed Best's autograph is about as legible as your typical modern baseball player's.

Tomorrow, I'll get back to posting baseball autographs. Hopefully everyone enjoyed the break.
