LOBBY CARD ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTERS issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display. This lobby card set is NOT FRAMED.
We do offer custom archival frames for an additional cost U. This is a vintage original lobby card set from our archives. L OBBY CARD Lobby cards are no longer used in theaters and are rarely printed for today's films.These small posters on card stock (usually 11" x 14" in a horizontal format) were generally produced in sets of eight, intended for display in a theater's foyer or lobby. A lobby set typically consists of one Title Card, a lobby card of special design usually depicting all key stars, listing credits and intended to represent the entire film rather than a single scene; and seven Scene Cards, each depicting a scene from the movie. There are also Mini Lobby Cards measuring 8 1/2" x 10" (stills). These can be very difficult to find in any condition! A long time can go by without one of these coming up for sale.
You will have trouble finding a nicer set. This lobby card set has a few imperfections on some or all of the cards. Very little general storage wear. Two of the cards have Australian snipes on the lower right corners.Please examine our extra large images very carefully! These detailed photos generally speak for themselves. We do not always list every little defect! We try and list any that we think are important or those that may not be readily visible. We realize that nobody likes surprises. Some additional defects this lobby card set may or may not have: fold or edge wear, pin holes, general storage wear, writing or tape on the back, tears, stains, dirt, minor cross fold separations, etc. If we have described this lobby card set as UNUSED, it will NOT have any tape or pinholes but still may contain some very light storage wear. If a vintage lobby card set is in terrific unrestored condition like this one (EX C8 or better), many experienced collectors will place a premium on it (when compared to a r estored one).
Most experienced collectors prefer unrestored items to restored ones because they believe they will appreciate more in value. This lobby card set is considered to be within that class and is definitely INVESTMENT QUALITY.
This is NOT a reprint or reproduction lobby card set! It is a REAL ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER lobby card set issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display. We are absolutely certain it is authentic. You may be willing to take the risk to save a few dollars, but we are not.
We use super strong hi-quality packaging materials including thick cardboard, masonite, and costly pvc plastic tubes. And guaranteed to arrive safely. It will answer any questions you may have. Please scroll to the bottom of this listing to see if we have made any changes or added any additional information. Please be advised that over 95% of all Original Movie Posters.Printed before the mid 1980's were issued FOLDED. This is NOT considered a defect.
Vintage rolled posters do exist, however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster. Which will make the fold lines virtually disappear. Also please note that most movie posters were actually used at the theater, and some will contain slight imperfections such as: writing on the back, pin holes, fold wear, small tears, etc. These are all very common and to be expected, but if they bother you, all these minor flaws can be remedied in the linen backing process.
Linen Backing preserves and can actually increase the value of a poster. For the most part, any flaws will be fixed and the poster will appear to be in Near Mint condition.
For more information about our. We do not always measure all of our posters exactly.Unless otherwise specified, poster measurements quoted above are approximate to the nearest inch. For example, if we say a one sheet poster is 27" x 41" its precise measurements may be closer to 26 3/4" x 40 7/8" (or something similar). This slight variance is quite common for all original movie posters. BEWARE OF "FAKE" MOVIE POSTERS! There are fakes, bootlegs, reprints, and reproductions of almost every popular movie poster. WE DO NOT SELL THESE AS ORIGINALS LIKE OTHERS DO! There are many unscrupulous dealers who successfully pass off these posters as originals. They have been doing it for years! These fakes are almost indistinguishable from originals, only experts can tell. They only discover years later when they sell them that they are worthless.
Most are from popular movies from the 70's and 80's, but there are also really old ones and relatively new ones as well. They usually appear in insert size 14" x 36" and one sheet size 27" x 41".Again, all we can say is BEWARE! We grade our posters according to the Iguide Universal 10-Point Movie Poster Grading Scale. Almost all of our inventory is graded at least C8 Excellent or better. C10 Mint - Investment quality. No perceptible flaws of any kind. C9 Near Mint - Investment quality. Minor flaw on an otherwise unused poster. C8 Excellent - Investment quality.
Pin holes, small tears, etc. C7 Very Good to Excellent - Fine.
Still a very nicely preserved item. C6 Very Good - The typical used poster in average condition. C5 Good to Very Good - A heavily-worn item. C4 Good - Below average but still suitable for display. C3 Fair - Heavily worn, but yet still complete.
C2 Poor to Fair - An extremely worn, possibly even incomplete item. C1 Poor - The lowest grade, representing items in the lowest possible condition. Some of our posters are "between grades". For example, a C8-C9 poster will contain all the qualities/characteristics of a Near Mint C9 except for one or two very minor flaws that we believe prevent it from being a true C9.Sometimes it isn't possible to do this. Sometimes we can't roll a folded poster.
Please note that if we hold your items for longer than 30 days they will NOT BE RETURNABLE. WE TAKE EXTRA SPECIAL CARE WHEN WE PACKAGE YOUR ITEMS. Folded posters are placed in a plastic bag or envelope and in between STRONG pieces of cardboard and taped together before being placed in the package.Rolled posters are put into a plastic sleeve and then placed in a HEAVY-DUTY TOUGH 3" or 4" diameter thick walled PVC tube. We roll the poster into a smaller diameter than the tube.
This is VERY IMPORTANT because it gives the edges strength and helps to prevent them from getting wrinkled. We add soft cushioning material also very important! On the ends to prevent them from getting damaged.
