What, you may ask, is the current market value of this Title Card? In case you were wondering how the recession affected the collector market, the record for this card was just hattered at auction in March 2008 for $7200.
The second 1949 "OZ" Title Card we have acquired in 20+ years of collecting. The first one we acquired a year ago and sold. Here's is another RARE opportunity, while it lasts!
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 eight cards were sold separately at auction for record prices. 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 the STUNNING Title Card. As you can see the artwork is just magnificent! A BEAUTY! And, is INDEED, THE card that sold for over $7200 at Heritage in March 2008. Be sure to check the other cards from this set. After we sold one of these last year, we had several collectors who asked if we would ever acquire another. I responded, if ever maybe several years, as I never imagined such an opportunity would surface so soon. But, of course we always have eager to buy requests for sold out items, then when we do acquire, those same collectors seem to disappear. It's just human nature to "want" what we can't have.
Excellent condition. Had a small 1 inch tear at top border that was professionally repaired. Guaranteed Authentic for Life
