1948 The Three Stooges The Hot Scots Near-Complete Lobby-Card Set (3)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $830
Near-complete set of three (out of four) different lobby cards from the Three Stooges 1948 short The Hot Scots. (The studios normally issued only four lobby cards for shorts and lower-budget films instead of the standard eight.) This was the eleventh 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. Auction listings featuring more than one Three Stooges lobby card from a set are rare. This grouping is comprised of the desirable title card and two scene cards. The title card is in Excellent to Mint condition. Each of the scene cards is Excellent in appearance, but has had restoration to a number of edge tears and pinholes. Total: 3 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+++. SOLD FOR $830
