    Warming Up (Paramount, 1928). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). "Warming Up" is an early baseball/comedy film starring Richard Dix and Jean Arthur. Dix plays Bert Tolliver, a pitcher who believes he is vexed. Author, who plays the daughter of a major league baseball team's owner, sees Tolliver in a park thrilling the crowd with his pitching accuracy. They meet and her love for him helps overcome the jinx, allowing Tolliver to pitch and win the last game of the series. There is a tear on the left border that extends into the graphics, light stains on the right border and one small corner crease. The colors are vibrant and the card displays well.
