Description

This is “FIGURES DON’T LIE” an original MUTOSCOPE arcade card from the 1940’s. The art is done by the most talented pin-up artist of the era, GIL ELVGREN. This GLAMOUR GIRLS card is rated “VERY RARE” by the knowledgeable folks at Mutoworld and quite hard to find. The card is a lithograph on heavy card stock and measures 5 1/4″ by 3 1/4″. This item is in pretty good shape, with some edge wear, most notably in the top right corner. It also has a few creases, the most noticable being about 2″ down on the left edge. 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.
