1950 The Jackie Robinson Story Complete Lobby Card Set (8)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $474
Complete set of eight lobby cards issued for Eagle Lion Films' The Jackie Robinson Story (1950). Released just three years after Jackie Robinson's historic debut with the Dodgers, the film starred Robinson as himself and Minor Watson as Branch Rickey. The lobby-card set from the film has always been held in extremely high regard by collectors in part because Robinson is featured prominently in seven of the eight cards. The cards (each 14 x 11 inches) have been mounted together in a framed display. The title card is in Good condition overall, with minor edge tears, tack holes, light staining, and a few small areas of surface paper loss. The remaining cards range from Very Good to Excellent, averaging Vg-Ex, with minor creasing the most common flaw. Ideal for display! Framed to total dimensions of 31.5 x 48.5 inches. The substantial size/weight of this item requires that there will be a shipping charge for this lot (which will vary depending upon where it is being shipped). The shipping charge will be billed separately from the auction invoice. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $474
