1962 Safe at Home One-Sheet Movie Poster
Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $415
One-sheet (27 x 41 inches) movie poster from the 1962 Columbia Pictures release Safe at Home, starring Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Although the film will never be found on any critic's list of top 100 sports movies, the studio's advertising department certainly hit a home run, as the colorful movie poster has long been recognized as a classic among collectors. The poster features an illustration picturing the famed "M&M Boys" together with child-star Bryan Russell, "The Luckiest Kid in the World." Safe at Home is one of the great display pieces of the era, and also represents one of the great values of all vintage Mantle-Maris memorabilia. This is a beautiful example, ready to hang on the wall just as it had been years in the foyer of our consignor's home. The poster appears to be linen backed and displays both horizontal and vertical fold lines as issued. Professional restoration is evident along the fold lines, and in repair of tack holes. A small piece of tape appears in the upper left corner. The poster displays an Excellent overall appearance. Framed to total dimensions of 29 x 43 inches. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$400. SOLD FOR $415
