Sell Lobby Cards

Want to sell your original vintage lobby cards?

As a professional appraiser I will help you determine the true value of any movie memorabilia you may have, including lobby cards, at no cost to you. As a private collector, I am able offer you a full cash payment for your items without an additional purchaser's fee that are required when an item is sold at auction. If I am not personally interested in purchasing your original vintage lobby cards, I am happy to refer you to other private collectors.

Lobby Cards were found in the lobby of theaters promoting the feature movie. They offered small snap shots of scenes from the film. Lobby cards are great to collect since they are relatively small in size and much easier to store than some large movie posters.  The visual variety of lobby card designs is simply amazing. I am always on the look out for vintage lobby cards in good condition.

All other images are examples of the type of movie memorabilia Ralph DeLuca is looking to purchase.

Lobby Card (LC)
Lobby cards are usually 14" x 11". They were printed on light cardstock.  These small posters, originally created to appear in a movie theater's lobby, were created in sets of eight. 

The typical oringinal  lobby set consists of one Title Card (TC) which has a special design usually depicting all key stars and listing credits. It was intended to represent the entire film rather than a single scene. The remaining seven cards of a set known as Scene Cards  (SC) would depict a particular scene). Lobby cards are no longer used in the US, but are still produced occasionally for the overseas market.

In addition to the regular sized lobby cards there are also jumbo lobby cards and mini lobby cards.

- Jumbo Lobby Cards (JLC) are 14" x 17".  They were made before 1940. Today you will usually find a single Jumbo lobby card  for sale. It is extremely rare to find JLC as a set.

- Mini Lobby Cards (MLC) are 8" x 10".
