The first time we've acquired an Original lobby card from this Rare Classic Horror title featuring the Mummy in the card scene image !

The most desirable of the Chaney "Mummy series", this gorgeous original vintage horror lobby card from 1944 has beautiful vintage bright colors and a spectacular image of Chaney as the Mummy in the border art.   Terrific scene card with this great card showing Chaney, the Mummy  leaning over Ames as John Carradine looks on. 

 In very good condition for its 80 years with some minor border restoration   Paper from this title is very scare and valuable with one sheets selling for over $12,000 and a lobby card (without Mummy in image) just sold in June 2022 for $3600 and July 2022 for $2800. .    And as most collectors know vintage horror (particularly Universal Horror posters & lobby cards) is the most solid investment and the gold category of the movie poster collecting genre.

The Mummy's Ghost (Universal, 1944). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
This was the 3rd film in the Mummy series from Universal Studios. After the success of the original The Mummy in 1932, and highly profitable runs of other sequels to horror features, Universal embarked on a new Mummy series in 1940 with Tom Tyler taking over the role Boris Karloff made famous. In 1942, Tyler was out as Universal wanted to promote their new horror star, Lon Chaney Jr., and cast him as the Mummy Kharis in the final three films. In this sequel, the Mummy is in Massachusetts being revived through the use of Tanna leaves. John Carradine, as the evil Yousef Bey, is sent on a mission to retrieve Kharis and the Princess Ananka and return them to Egypt. Bey soon discovers that Ananka, whose mummified body is on display in a museum, has been reincarnated and he now wants to kidnap the reincarnated princess for his own desires. This lobby card features a wonderful image of Chaney as the Mummy in the border art.

Lon Chaney Jr. reprised his role as Kharis, the Mummy, in this thrilling third installment of the Mummy series. In this sequel, Kharis travels to America where he finds the reincarnation of his lost love, Amina Mansouri (Ramsay Ames). Amina too sips the strange brew of the tanna leaves and soon begins to experiences strange and unsettling trances, as well as grey streaks in her hair, as she transforms into the ancient Princess Ananka. This great card show Chaney leaning over Ames as John Carradine looks on.  One of the Best cards of the set!
Lon Chaney Jr. takes on the mantle of the moldy bandages in this, the second of his three appearances as Kharis, the living Mummy. These superb lobby cards give a very good look at the Mummy make-up, as well as having great images of ravishing Ramsay Ames, Lon Chaney, and the brooding John Carradine.
