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: good. The card has darkened, typical of Warner Bros. linen lobby cards of this period. There was a 3" semi-circular tear with tiny bits of surface paper loss in the upper right of the image, running across the man's chest. Someone put several pieces of tape on the back of that area, and put touch up paint on the tiny surface paper loss (see our images). There are a few creases and faint scuffs scattered in the card. There are two tape repairs on the back of a tear and crease in the left blank border. See our super-sized images to get a good sense of the condition of this card.
