Jabba the Hutt Telephone Card by GTI Telecom

December 12, 2010

“May The Force And True Savings Be With You…” Classy.

I don’t know about you, but the whole idea of a telephone card strikes me as a bit anachronistic in these days of ubiquitous cell phones and free long distance calling. I got this card still sealed in the package, so theoretically it may still be good for something, but I don’t really have any use for it even if it worked. But in 1996 when these were released, I guess they were still somewhat useful.

GTI Telecom released a whole line of Star Wars telephone cards — 36 of them if the back of the package is to be believed. At retail prices of $10 to $20 apiece, you would have had to do an awful lot of calling to get the complete collection.
