1962 Safe at Home Three-Sheet Movie Poster

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $920.00

Spectacular and rare three-sheet (41 x 81 inches) movie poster issued to promote the 1962 Columbia Pictures film Safe at Home starring Yankee sluggers Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Released in the wake of their most glorious season, Safe at Home did not win any Academy Awards. But it did give Mantle and Maris an opportunity to shine on the big screen, which was a source of great amusement to both for the rest of their lives. The movie also left collectors with a selection of extremely attractive display material, primarily in the form of one-sheet posters and lobby cards. The posters for this movie have always been among the most popular of all baseball-related movie posters. This large and very impressive three-sheet poster is many times rarer than the traditional one-sheet. This is an extraordinary and essentially perfect three-sheet which has never been used, and which has remained folded in its original state exactly as delivered to the movie theater by Columbia Pictures in 1962. The poster has the normal fold lines as issued, and is otherwise in crisp Near Mint condition. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $920.00
