An Original Vintage Theatrical Paperbacked Window Card Movie Poster (WC; measures 14" x 22") (Learn More)

Slide, Kelly, Slide! the 1927 Edward Sedgwick silent New York Yankees romantic baseball sports melodrama (one of the most popular baseball movies ever made, about a phenomenal New York Yankees rookie baseball pitcher who alienates all the fans with his cocky attitude; he romances the daughter of a veteran catcher on the team; he gets drunk before a major game, and acts disgracefully, causing him to be fired, and causes the batboy who worshiped him to hate him; in the deciding game of the World Series, the Yankees run out of pitchers, and the batboy runs out to find the fired star, and is hit by a truck, and the young star not only pitches the end of the game, but also scores the winning run; the batboy recovers, the young star redeems himself, and is loved by everyone!) starring William Haines (in the title role as Jim Kelly), Sally O'Neil, Harry Carey Sr., Frank Coghlan Jr. (billed as "Junior Coghlan"; as the batboy), Warner Richmond, and Karl Dane

Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been paperbacked. What is paperbacking? This means the poster was backed onto a paper backing (acid-free), that is similar in feel to that of the original poster (except somewhat heavier). It is a similar process to linenbacking, except that most collectors use linenbacking for one-sheets and paperbacking for half-sheets, inserts, window cards, and lobby cards.

Condition: good to very good. The poster was never folded. It appears the left and right 1" of the card was trimmed off, and that there were pinholes around the edges of the card and creases and scuffs scattered through the card. Overall, the poster was in good condition prior to paperbacking. The person who backed the card expertly restored the missing left and right 1", and performed slight touch up to the image. You can see slight signs of the restoration of the defects, but I much prefer this sort of restoration, because the other way, the card would have had a "heavily restored" look, and I do not feel the restoration that was done is distracting, and I think the card will display great on anyone's wall!
