This is a little off topic but I have no where else to turn. Does anyone collect or know anyone who collects Bowery Boys lobby cards?
I’ve been on the pursuit to get all 386 cards for over 15 years. I have 345.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
MW

One of my favorites as a kid and watching the movies each day now on you tube. Do you have any duplicates and are they expensive?
Would consider having one just to have with the whole gang pictured depending on price.
I do have a few Beatle items.

WNEW TV (NYC Metro area, now WNYW ) in the 70's and even into the early 80's on Sunday afternoons would often yield a Bowery Boys film followed by a Marx Bros flick. Chiller Theater or something similar on Sat nights, same with WOR and WPIX back in the day. Three Stooges, Little Rascals (no, Bill Cosby did not buy the rights) Abbott & Costello and sometimes even old Laurel & Hardy, Chaplin and Buster Keaton shorts, etc. were on various stations. And on and on-I just sucked all the old B&W goodness up as a kid.

I may still have some VHS tapes of the Marx Bros pictures I taped off the TV that still have bumpers and commercials but no way to play them right now. I've since gotten all the MB on DVD but those old commercials and station announcements would be something to see again.

You are right in my wheelhouse there, but don't forget the old Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers serials; probably why Topps did that test set...and how I knew Buster Crabbe was more than just a mens' girdle tv salesman.  And wrestling and roller derby.  Sundays sure were fun when it rained and no one could tell me to turn off the tv and go outside to play.  And remember this:
