Vintage Gamorrean Guard Knit Hat by Sales Corporation of America

It’s funny, but there are still Jabba-related products out there that I’ve never seen before. This is one of them. Until it popped up on eBay, I had no idea that it existed. According to the Star Wars Collector’s Archive, Sales Corporation made hats for several different characters: Darth Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2, Paploo (the ewok), Chewbacca and the Gamorrean Guard. Most of those choices make sense, since they’re major characters, and while Paploo isn’t anybody’s favorite ewok, he was probably more of a placeholder for ewoks in general.

The Gamorrean though is a bit of a head-scratcher. It’s really interesting that the Gamorreans got so many clothing items and collectibles dedicated to them, given the fact that the they were essentially background characters who did very little and said nothing. This isn’t even the only vintage Gamorrean hat I have! There’s also a baseball cap, also by Sales Corporation. In fact, I’m thinking of doing a little article listing all of the Gamorrean Guard items that have been made. It should be fun.

Maybe sometime my son can wear this and I can wear one of my Jabba hats (like this one, this one, this one or this one.) 🙂
