1947 The Three Stooges Out West Complete Lobby-Card Set (4)

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,422

Complete set of all four lobby cards from the Three Stooges 1947 short Out West. (The studios normally issued only four lobby cards for shorts and lower-budget films instead of the standard eight.) This was just the second Three Stooges film to feature Shemp Howard, who joined the group after his brother Curly suffered a stroke in 1946. All Three Stooges lobby cards are rare, even those dating from the later years (1947 to 1956). Interestingly, we have seen fewer Stooges lobby cards at auction from that later period than we have from the 1934-1946 span. This is only the second complete set of Three Stooges lobby cards we have ever seen offered at public auction (the other one appears in this sale as well) and few other complete sets exist outside of our consignor's world-class collection. All of the lobby cards (14 x 11 inches) display a few tack/staple holes along the top and bottom borders and are otherwise in Excellent condition overall, displaying only modest handling wear. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $1,422
