DescriptionThe Maltese Falcon (Warner Brothers, 1931). CGC Graded Lobby Card (11" X 14").
An exciting opportunity for any classic collector or crime drama fan, Heritage has the privilege of presenting not just one, but a whole lobby card set for this Roy Del Ruth production, a find of incredible scarcity. Originally a serial story appearing in the Black Mask magazine, Dashiell Hammett's novel gained a substantial boost in popularity with Roy Del Ruth's cinematic adaptation, and is now considered an American literary classic. Vastly different from Humphrey Bogart's take on the main character, it was Ricardo Cortez's flippant womanizer that first introduced audiences to the ruthless detective Sam Spade. This wonderful card, a Heritage first, Spade is about to punch Joel Cairo (Otto Matieson). As with the other individual cards offered in the set, this card in beautiful condition and has been graded 9.4, Near Mint.
Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
