1950 The Three Stooges Punchy Cowpunchers Partial Lobby Card Set (3)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,320

Near-complete set of three (out of four) different lobby cards from the 1950 Three Stooges short Punchy Cowpunchers, including the highly desirable title card. (The studios normally issued only four lobby cards for shorts and lower-budget films instead of the standard eight.) This was the twenty-fourth 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 seldom seen. All of the cards (14 x 11 inches) display varying degrees of restoration in repair of pinholes and/or minor border tears. The title card is in Excellent condition overall, with a few staple holes (not restored) along the border areas and the name of the film written in pencil on the reverse. The two scene cards are each in Very Good condition, with both displaying numerous staple holes (not restored) along the borders. Total: 3 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,320
