|The pictures below show larger views of all (3) Different Old Western John Wayne Cowboy Hero Movie Actor Arcade Cards in this lot. They are not marked but they are believed to be from The Exhibit Supply Company. These are printed on heavy card stock paper.|
Arcade cards with cowboy, movie star, musician, risque, pin up women, cartoon, comic, character, joke images, and many more were very popular from the 1940s to the 1960s. They were usually acquired from an old coin operated arcade machine for only 1 cent each. These coin operated machines were usually located in old arcades, on boardwalks, at amusement parks, in tourist attraction areas, and many other popular locations.
Some different styles of old arcade cards have print on the backs but these do not. As many were made, these are blank. One of these cowboy arcade cards is marked ''Printed in U.S.A.''. In the order pictured, the printed facsimile inscriptions and autographs are as follows:
Good Luck John Wayne
Yours Truly John Wayne
All three of these John Wayne cards for one price! The cards each measure 3-5/16'' x 5-5/16''. These appear to range from excellent to mint condition as pictured. The left one has a scuff mark at the top left.
