Turn the page back to the 1950s with this non-sport postcard and photo lot of (35) items. Starring A-List comedians and familiar westerners, this nostalgic collection leads to reminiscences of a kinder, gentler bill of Hollywood fare. The first lady of television, Lucille Ball gets top billing in the comedy department, with strong support from comedy teams Abbott and Costello, and Martin and Lewis. On the Western frontier, we see film legends Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Tex Ritter, Bill Boyd and a posse of others who made the genre such a big hit with movie-going audiences. Condition is generally pleasing, though a few pieces are in well-worn state.
