    Description

    Bobby Jones in How I Play Golf (Warner Brothers, 1931). Lobby Card Set of 4 (11" X 14") Episode 8 -- "The Brassie."
    The year after his retirement, golf champion Bobby Jones was hired to star in this series, which was a tremendous coup for the Warner Brothers Studio. To have the most famous of sports figures agree to do a series of shorts on his game was unbelievable. All of the stars on the lot wanted to participate and thus the format was developed: using stars such as James Cagney, Edward G. Robinson, and W.C. Fields. Stars Loretta Young and Allan Lane appear in this short, and both are featured on two of the four cards. The plot features the duo planning an elopement. They use Jones to divert the attention of Claude Gillingwater, who plays Young's father, from their escape. Offered in this amazing lot is the complete set of four lobby cards, featuring a title card and three scene cards. The title card features a great image of Jones about to swing. These are truly some of the most elusive and truly rare vintage movie items concerning a sports legend. All of the cards in this set are as mint as a card of this age can possibly be, with sharp corners and a gorgeous cream colored paper. They are completely unrestored! Near Mint/Mint.
