    Description

    The Pride of the Yankees (RKO, 1942). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). In the history of film, very few made about the national pastime of baseball have done well. This is one of those rare exceptions. Though star Gary Cooper threw with the wrong hand, requiring the film to be flipped, so that players had to run from home to third and wear uniforms with reversed numbers, he portrayed Lou Gehrig with great dignity, and his romantic scenes with Teresa Wright as Gehrig's wife were warm and honest. This rare and great set of cards from this classic, of course, features the very collectable Babe Ruth card, which we have sold for over $700 alone, in the past! Other than pinholes and minor corner wear this set is in splendid condition. Very Fine.
