    Description

    1949 "Pride of the Yankees" One-Sheet Movie Poster Though this poster dates from the later re-release of the classic Gary Cooper film, it stands as one of the very rare examples of a re-issue being more valuable and desirable than the original. The reasoning is quite simple -- the original poster for the film, considered by many to be the greatest Hollywood homage to baseball in celluloid history, failed to picture its greatest star, Babe Ruth. This oversight was corrected for the re-issue, surely due in part to the Bambino's passing in 1948. A professional linen-backing job has left the poster in very strong condition, and, if the winning bidder were so inclined, another visit to a restorationist could eliminate any sign of the folds that remain. Measures a standard 27" x 41" in size.
