1947 The Three Stooges Sing A Song of Six Pants Complete Lobby-Card Set (4)

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $948

Complete set of four lobby cards from the Three Stooges 1947 short Sing A Song Of Six Pants. (The studios normally issued only four lobby cards for shorts and lower-budget films instead of the standard eight.) This was just the fifth 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. The lobby cards (14 x 11 inches) vary in condition. Ideally, the title card is the finest of the group. Aside from the name of the film written on the reverse in pencil, the card displays only modest handling wear and is in Excellent condition overall. The scene card featuring Shemp alone has a tiny stain along the base and is in Very Good to Excellent condition. The scene card of Moe pulling a gentleman's tie has restoration to a few tears along the base and is Very Good to Excellent in appearance. The final card, of Shemp sticking Larry with a pin, has significant restoration to tears and pinholes and is Very Good in appearance. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $948
