This is what all you BURT LANCASTER fans have been waiting for!
This is a beautiful example of an original set of 11"x14" lobby card movie posters from the classic "THE SWIMMER". These are very difficult to find in any condition!
A long time can go by without one of these coming up for sale. UNUSED!! Graded C9-C10 Near Mint to Mint condition. Virtually flawless!! You will have trouble finding a nicer set.
If a vintage lobby card set is in terrific unrestored condition like this one (EX C8 or better), many experienced collectors will place a premium on it (when compared to a paper backed/restored one). Most experienced collectors prefer unrestored items to restored ones because they believe they will appreciate more in value.
When buying collectibles it is always wise to buy "the best of the best" as they stand a greater chance of appreciation. This set is considered to be within that class and is definitely INVESTMENT QUALITY.
An iconic image. Beautiful artwork. Bright vivid colors.
T are known reprints and/or reproductions of this set. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!!
This is guaranteed to be a genuine ORIGINAL LOBBY CARD SET issued by the studio when the film was first released and meant for theatrical display.
We are absolutely certain it is authentic.
We offer this one at NO RESERVE!!
Please be aware that most original movie posters issued before the mid 1980's were issued FOLDED (over 95%). This is NOT considered a defect. They were shipped to theaters this way. Vintage rolled posters do exist, however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster LINEN BACKED which will make the fold lines virtually disappear.
Also please note that most movie posters were actually used at the theater and some will contain slight imperfections like writing on the back, pin holes, fold wear, etc. These are all very common and to be expected, but, if they bother you, all these minor flaws can be remedied in the linen backing process. LINEN BACKING preserves and can actually increase the value of a poster. For the most part any flaws will be fixed and the poster will appear to be in Near Mint condition. For more details on Linen Backing please email us or call and ask for Dave.
Unless otherwise specified, poster measurements quoted above are approximate to the nearest inch. For example, if we say a poster is 27"x41" its precise measurements may be something like 26 3/4" x 40 7/8". This is quite common for all original movie posters.
BEWARE OF "FAKE" MOVIE POSTERS!!
T are bootlegs, reprints, reproductions, re-strikes, re-issues, etc. all over ebay. WE DO NOT SELL THESE! T are many unscrupulous dealers who successfully pass off these posters as originals. They have been doing it for years! These fakes are almost indistinguishable from originals, only experts can tell. Many who buy them don't know they have been taken, only years later when they sell the...
