Offered is a rarely seen survivor promoting the 1962 Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris film Safe at Home--an 82-inch long movie theatre paper banner! One sheets are fairly common--many were kept--but few of these massive posters were even ordered by theatres. After the two sluggers duked it out in the 1961 home run race, ending with Maris breaking Babe Ruth's single season record, the two capitalized on their recent fame by taking a stab at Hollywood. The film concerns a young Florida boy who calims to his little league teammates that he knows Mantle and Maris and can get them to come to the team's banquet. Hilarity ensues with co-stars William Frawley and Yankees Whitey Ford and Ralph Houk. The offered silk-screened banner is printed on craft-colored paper, unlike most banners of this nature that were printed on white paper. The ink is VERY WELL preserved, as it often chips heavily. There is a 4 inch tear on the right side. Excellent condition.
1962 <em>Safe at Home</em> Silk Screened Movie Theatre Paper Banner – 82 Inches in Length! Starring Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris
