Description

    1927 Babe Comes Home Insert Movie Poster. The head of the Heritage Auctions Movie Poster department assures us that the surviving examples of this exceedingly rare insert could be counted on a single hand, and another poster from the film set off fireworks here a decade ago when a gorgeous one sheet realized a staggering $138,000. Though the film itself, which casts the Yankees legend as a slugger who loses his talent when his fiancee enforces a ban on chewing tobacco, was no cinematic masterpiece, the desirability of quality artifacts from the film is evident.

    The presented representation is professionally restored, and mounted onto acid-free paper backing for archival purposes. Close inspection will reveal the hand-touched recoloring throughout, but the work is so subtle as to be imperceptible from any reasonable viewing range, with each sure to please even the most discriminating of poster experts. Dimensions 14x36".
