1942 to 1957 Baseball One-Sheet Movie Poster Collection (10)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,900.00
Collection of ten one-sheet movie posters (each 27 x 41 inches) featuring films related to the game of baseball, including many of the most well known baseball films. 1) 1942 It Happened In Flatbush (folded with minor tears at folds, Ex). 2) 1943 Whistling In Brooklyn (folded, Vg-Ex). 3) 1948 It Happens Every Spring (linen backed, Ex). 4) 1952 Winning Team (folded with tears at folds, Vg-Ex). 5) 1952 Kid From Left Field (folded, Vg-Ex). 6) 1953 Big Leaguer (folded, Ex-Mt). 7) 1954 Roogie's Bump (features headshots of Campy, Loes, Meyer, and Erskine, linen backed, Ex). 8) 1955 Great American Pastime (folded, Ex-Mt). 9) 1956 Strattan Story (folded with tears at folds, Ex). 10) 1957 Fear Strikes Out (folded, Vg-Ex). All of the posters have a few tiny tears and creases along border areas, with a few also displaying some interior creases, all minor, which is typical of original vintage movie posters which have not yet been linen-backed. When linen-backed, these will all display as Ex-Mt or better. All ten are classic baseball movie posters with exceptional graphics. Each is a magnificent tribute to one of the most popular genres of the cinema. Total 10 posters. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,900.00
