DescriptionThe Pride of the Yankees (RKO, R-1949). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
This picture tells the story of legendary Yankee's slugger and first baseman Lou Gehrig who, at the peak of his career, developed amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative condition now referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease." Although Sam Goldwyn reportedly considered the story "box office poison," the picture went on to become an enormous hit, featuring one of star Gary Cooper's most emotional, and memorable, performances. This reissue poster features a great shot of the legendary Babe Ruth, who also appeared in the film. A fantastic piece for baseball fans, this half sheet shows edge and fold wear, mild fold separations, pinholes, and some creasing. There are also a few small tears and unobtrusive smudging. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
