Original movie Lobby Cards are graded as follows from the top down: C10 (Mint), C9 (Near Mint), C8 (Very Fine), C7 (Fine/Very Fine), C6 (Fine or Very Good), C5 (Good to Very Good), C4 (Good), etc. The overall appearance of this Lobby Card is very strong and is unfettered by any major flaws.The scrap above the cowboy's hat is the primary - and only - flaw that is in the main image, and it is not readily noticeable. The photo that appears in this listing of that scrap is highlighted by the camera's flash; the scrap is not that white or different in color than the surrounding Lobby Card area. But the scrap is there and it can be noticed. However, we feel that it is not the type of flaw - like missing paper or a large smudge - that significantly hurts the simple beauty of this Lobby Card. Restoration of the Lobby Card would alleviate this scrap and the other flaws. If you are interested in this Lobby Card and are also interested in restoring it, please let us know. We can have that restoration done and the cost would be added to the price of the Lobby Card.
We use a professional restoration company that is both reasonable in price and highly effective in restoring original movie posters and Lobby Cards to their original beauty and condition. We fully belive that the cost of restoration would be exceeded by the increase in value of a restored THE TRAIL RIDER. The Lobby Card THE TRAIL RIDER definitely has investment value. We have seen very few, if any, original Lobby Cards or movie posters of THE TRAIL RIDER. There are a number of reproductions of the One Sheet movie poster listed on the internet, but originals are few and far between.
And we found no Title Lobby Cards for THE TRAIL RIDER. There may be one or two originals of THE TRAIL RIDER out there somewhere, but here we definitely have one in very presentable condition.If you have any questions, please let me know.
