1949 The Three Stooges Hokus Pokus Near-Complete Lobby-Card Set (3)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $948

Near-complete set of three (out of four) different lobby cards from the Three Stooges 1948 short Hokus Pokus. (The studios normally issued only four lobby cards for shorts and lower-budget films instead of the standard eight.) This was the eighteenth 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 three scene cards. One of the cards (with the Stooges on the ground and a man and woman standing over them) displays pinholes along all four borders; otherwise all have moderate handling wear, including a few light creases and/or edge tears, and are in Very Good condition. Total: 3 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+++. SOLD FOR $948
