U.S. lobby cards set of DUEL OF CHAMPIONS (1961). Not bad but no close-up of Alan Ladd? Was that intentional? To hide his age? It is a bit repetitive with cards 3 and 6 being from the same scene. And cards 4 and 5 being identical to each other. They could have shown two additional new scenes, boosting the cards worth. If I was the one choosing the scenes I would have chosen better scenes than these. Average.

I think you are assuming that more thought went into creating the lobby cards than actually did. My impression was that National Screen Service used the photos the studio had given them. I've almost always questioned the choice of scenes but people working on these didn't give it as much thought as we do in retrospect.
