Important Added Info: Note that from the 1910s through the 1950s, lobby card sets were sent in brown bags that had the names of the movie and credits printed on the outside. The purpose of the bag was to protect the lobby cards, and they served that purpose well! Since the vast majority of lobby card sets get broken up and sold by the individual card, few of these original printed brown bags survive, except in the cases where someone preserved the entire set with the bag. We don't know if there are "brown bag collectors", but it certainly seems that the printed brown bag from legendary movies would be the most desirable, and ones from lesser movies would have lesser value!
