It is on a rare occasion we acquire one of these 1949 re-release OZ lobby cards. We always believed they were superior to the original 1939 cards, the color, artwork , graphics are just spectacular. For many years we thought these 49 lobby cards were our little secret. That changed last year when Heritage sold eight cards separately. The prices shocked everyone. One sold for over $4200! Even more then the original 1939 cards. Our little secret was no longer. The rest of the collecting world apparently discovered these extraordinary treasures.
Here we are offering one of the best cards of the set, "Which Way Do We Go?" . You know the scene. A BEAUTY! And, is was INDEED, In addition to the superior artwork, color and graphics of this 1949 lobby card set, there were a few cards that had scenes which were NOT included in the original 1939 or 1955 set. In particular, this "Which Way?" scene. It is one of the reasons this set has become even MORE popular then the original 1939 set. It usually takes us several years to find ONE of these 1949 Oz cards. Grab this one or wait about 4-5 years for us to find another. This particular lobby card is in extraordinary condition, the best condition we have ever found... NO Restoration whatsoever, not even the typical pinholes or any tears. Only minor age toning as would be expected with any Original 60 + year old lobby card.
Condition - Near Mint!
Guaranteed Genuine for Life
