This original movie Lobby Card is graded C7, Fine/Very Fine. 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 Lobby Card has a very presentable appearance and could be framed and presented for display - as is - with excellent results. Proper framing could minimize the flaws that exist along the card's border, where most of the flaws are located, particularly the missing paper at the top right corner. Restoration of the Lobby Card could definitely alleviate the border issues, the scrap in the Letter "H", the pin holes, and the other minor flaws.
We believe that the cost of restoration would be exceeded by the increase of value in the Lobby Card, if it were to be restored. But restoration is not necessary to attain a striking display of this iconic movie. We believe that the original Lobby Card WOMAN OF THE YEAR has significant investment value, particularly the pairing of Hepburn and Tracy which is always in demand.
The One Sheet (27" x 41") of WOMAN OF THE YEAR is valued in several thousands. If you have any questions, please let me know.
