1931 Galloping Ghost and 1940 Arizona Frontier One-Sheet Movie Posters

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $805.00

Two one-sheet movie posters (both 27 x 41 inches) featuring football Hall of Famers Red Grange and Jim Thorpe. 1) In the 1931 film Galloping Ghost, football great Red Grange stars in this 12-chapter serial about a football player trying to clear his name after being charged with cheating. The poster is linen-backed with some minor restoration on the left and bottom borders, otherwise in Near Mint condition. 2) The 1940 Monogram Pictures release Arizona Frontier starred Tex Ritter and football legend Jim Thorpe. This is a very scarce and fascinating poster featuring Thorpe dressed in traditional Indian headdress. The one-sheet poster is linen-backed and the normal folds are flattened out from the linen backing process. There are some minor touches of restoration along the fold lines, otherwise the poster is in Near Mint condition. Both posters are extremely attractive and ideal for display. Total 2 posters. Reserve $300. Estimate $700/$1,000. SOLD FOR $805.00
