|The pictures below show larger views of all (4) Different Old Western Cowboy Hero Movie Actor Arcade Cards in this lot. There are (4) images with inscriptions on each of the cards for a total of (16) sepia tone cowboy images. The four cards are different. These were all found together and they appear to be from the same set. 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. These cowboy arcade cards are marked ''Made in U.S.A.''. There were a few names that we could not quite make out. You will see some ''?????'' in the below list. In the order pictured, the printed facsimile inscriptions and autographs are as follows:
Just Riding Along – Eddie Dean
