I'm posting this for a friend over at Club Obi Wan in hopes that some of you will take interest. I know some of you have original props, costume and production materials from the Indiana Jones films and I thought some of you might like to participate and give Rick a hand in putting together the best and most thorough Indy exhibit ever displayed. I know it's asking alot to send such valuable material to someone you don't know personally, but I can vouch for Rick, who has had many years of experience as a museum curator. He knows his stuff and knows how to handle it. I have faith that my items will be properly handled, displayed and returned to me in the state they were given. If you have any questions, please contact Rick (not me) at the e-mail address provided at the bottom. Also, if anyone can think of any other forums to post this at, please post them here and many thanks!
