That's what my grandmother says whenever she's dishing out some fatty sweet desert for herself...(but she still eats it of course!)
This just arrived this afternoon, a vintage Lobby Card (11"x14") for Clara Bow's 1928 film "Three Week Ends". Sort of a momentous occasion for me... my first piece of Clara Bow movie paperware, my first pre-1930 movie paperware AND my first silent film paperware as well. My earliest Lobby Cards up to now were from 1933.
I said the same thing when I bid on the item below...
The condition of this card is simply amazing! To think this piece of paper is 82 years old and has nary a pinhole or fold in it and the colors are still bright is quite extraordinary! The price was higher than I've ever paid for a lobby Card before but well below what I thought it would end out at. I figured for sure this would end up in at least the $300 range but in truth I was the only bidder and it went for less than half that!
Suffice it to say this is going in a frame within the next 5 minutes!
