Each card in this complete set of eight fun, full-color, U.S. lobby cards for the film Girls! Girls! Girls! has been graded and sealed by CGC (Certified Guaranty Company) to preserve its condition, which ranges from 8.0 to 9.0, averaging 8.4. The original purpose of lobby cards was to promote the film in movie theaters. Compiling entire sets has become a hobby amongst collectors. Each lobby card features an image of Elvis flanked by two ladies, a monochrome image of a sailboat with more girls, and a still from a different scene in the film. Directed by Norman Taurog and co-starring Stella Stevens and Laurel Goodwin, Girls! Girls! Girls! starred Elvis as Ross Carpenter, a sailor who tries to buy the boat on which he works when the owner retires. In typical Elvis musical movie fashion, he finds himself caught in a love triangle with his lovely co-stars. The lobby cards each measure approximately 11 by 14 inches (27.94 x 35.56 cm) and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
All eight cards have been encapsulated by CGC and graded between “8” and “9.” Cards range from Near Mint to Mint condition overall.
