1962 Safe At Home Movie Poster Collection (3)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480
Collection of three movie posters, two half sheets and an insert, issued in promotion of the 1962 Columbia Pictures film Safe at Home, starring Yankee sluggers Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Released in the wake of their most glorious season, Safe at Home did not win any Academy Awards, nor was it a "home run" with the critics. But it did give Mantle and Maris an opportunity to shine on the big screen, which was a source of great amusement to both for the rest of their lives. The movie also left collectors with a selection of extremely attractive display materials, primarily in the form of posters and lobby cards. The offered collection is comprised of two identical half-sheet posters (28 x 22 inches) and an insert (14 x 36 inches), each featuring the same illustration of Mantle and Maris holding the young star of the film on their shoulders. Both half sheets display normal horizontal and vertical fold lines, moderate creases, and small edge tears. In Very Good condition overall. The insert displays normal horizontal folds, as well as a few additional folds, diagonal creases, and a tack hole. In Good to Very Good condition overall. Please note: these posters have been stored rolled for many years and will be shipped in a tube. Total: 3 posters (2 half sheets and an insert). Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $480
