Important Added Info: Note that we have a scan of both the front and the back of this lobby card, which should greatly help you see what defects it has.

Condition: fair to good. The card has darkened and there are tack holes in the corners and some small water stains in the lower left border. There are scuff marks scattered in the title, where there likely was once a snipe (see our image). Note that this lobby card is completely unrestored and there is not a single piece of tape on either the front or back!
