Original movie Lobby Cards are graded as follows from the top down: C10 (Mint), C9 (Near Mint), C8 (Very Fine), C7 (Fine/Very Fine), C6 (Fine or Very Good), C5 (Good to Very Good), C4 (Good), etc. The Lobby Card has a very presentable appearance and is immediately ready to be framed and displayed with excellent results. The minor flaws that occur along the borders can be alleviated with proper matting and framing of the Lobby Card. The flaws in the image area (1" faint line in the word "BLACK, minor smudging bottom right, and light scrap on the right) are all generally unobtrusive. Unobtrusive meaning that in looking at the Lobby Card, your eye is not immediately (or ever :) drawn to these flaws. Restoration could alleviate all of these flaws.

Of the incredible two decades of sci-fi and horror movie of the 1950s and 1960s are always in great demand by fans and collectors alike. That said, we believe that when it comes to original Lobby Card complete sets, the Lobby Card or Cards in that set that feature the main actor or actors, or in the case of sci-fi and horror, feature the monster or threat, or in this case, the CREATURE generate more interest and demand and thus greater value. This Lobby Card does show the CREATURE and thus may carry a little more value that other Lobby Cards of this set that do not feature the CREATURE. If you have any questions, please let me know. I have been collecting original movie posters for over 30 years.
