An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Lobby Card (LC; measures 11" x 14" [28 x 36 cm]) (Learn More)

Mickey's Bargain, the 1930 Albert Herman juvenile comedy short starring Mickey Rooney (billed as "Mickey [Himself] McGuire"), Billy Barty, Delia Bogard, Jimmy Robinson, and Marvin Stephens. Note that this is one of 50 "Mickey McGuire" shorts that Mickey Rooney starred in between 1927 and 1933 (he started when he was only six years old!). After 1933, he had a brief "lull" in his career, but he soon resurfaced as a top teen actor, and it was not long before he moved to the top of the box office in his roles in MGM movies, both in the Andy Hardy series, and in musicals with Judy Garland.

Important Added Info: Note that RKO made one-sheets and lobby cards for the 50 Mickey McGuire shorts, but virtually none are known to survive from any of them (likely because almost no theaters ordered them, since they were just shorts). In the past, we have auctioned a complete set of cards from one short, and a single card from another, but other than those and this card, we have not auctioned any other cards from these shorts! Note that there is a stamp on the back that reads "FROM THE COLLECTION OF Michael R. Hawks", who most would consider the premier lobby card collector and expert in the world (and he is still an active collector, looking for the last few items he needs!). Also 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: very good. There are a few faint creases around the edges. Otherwise, the card is in nice condition. Note that this lobby card is completely unrestored and there is not a single piece of tape on either the front or back!
