1 in stockBUY From eBay
This is “A GOOD SKATE” an original MUTOSCOPE arcade card from the 1940’s. I’m pretty sure the art is done by GIL ELVGREN although Mutoworld lists the artist as ‘unknown’. Nevertheless, this card is rated “RARE”. The card is a lithograph on heavy card stock and measures 5 1/4″ by 3 1/4″. This item is in really nice condition (very slight edge wear at some corners) and a very minor tape pull on the top back. Keep in mind the large image is enlarged by TWICE the size of the original card. Quality cheesecake from when the pin-up was in its’ heyday.
Mutoscope cards were published during the 1940s by the International Mutoscope Reel Company and other firms. All carry the inscription “A Mutoscope Card.” They were sold from coin-operated vending machines in places such as amusement parks. Most Mutoscope cards typically feature pin-up girl material.
