Description

The 1962 film Safe at Home may have been an “out” at the box office, but it did star reigning home run champs Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. The tagline on the offered 21-1/2 x 40-1/2 original movie poster boasts, “A Grand Slam! Fun and laughter with the greatest guys in baseball…and the luckiest kid in the world!” Prominently displayed on the advertisement are the grinning images of Mantle and Maris placed beneath a pair of pennant captions that illustrate the sluggers’ names. The multi-colored print set against white is clear and vibrant with bold and readable print. Between the factory foldings are instances of moderate wrinkling, wear and traces of staining on the upper left and right corners. The poster is expertly framed and exhibits outstanding display appeal. Although “Safe at Home” was not Columbia Pictures’ finest production, the Yankees stars win the day with their matchless star power.
