About the condition
Note that we give a detailed overall condition grade to every item we sell ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", "good", and "fair", with only a few graded "poor") along with more details about the condition described in words (but pretty much only if they are defects that CAN'T be seen in our super-sized images, or if the item is especially valuable). We felt this would help bidders identify items they want to bid on more easily. Of course, we still strongly recommend that you look at our super-sized image to see the extent of the defects that we describe and to examine the poster for minor defects that we did NOT describe.

If a poster is in less than very good condition, should you not bid on it? Of course not, as long as you are accepting of the defects the poster has! The item that is graded "very good", but has as many minor defects as is allowed under the "very good" definition is only in SLIGHTLY better condition than the best of the "good to very good" items. So please take the time to look at the larger images of items that interest you, and see if the defects are the sort that you can "live with", or are willing to restore. Some of these items are EXTREMELY rare, and it may be years before you see them offered again!


U.S. Shipping Details

THERE IS AN IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE IN THIS SET OF AUCTIONS ONLY (Part IV of our August Major Auction). The items being auctioned ship in a variety of ways, and you should refer to each individual auction page or the chart above to know how it will be shipped. After winning and depending on what you win, you may need to request a shipping quote through our Checkout system. Learn the exact details of flat rate shipping

     Note that this auction (unlike many of our auctions) contains both rolled and flat items, and if you get some of each type, then they will need to go in two or more packages and you will need to pay two or more shipping charges depending on what you win (and since many are quite "oversized" the shipping cost may be much higher than for "regular" tubes or packages).

     Missouri customers: You must pay an additional 7.162% sales tax on your purchases.  If your order is sent within the state of Missouri, we MUST collect this tax (if it is shipped to another state, we do not collect the tax).

Do you need "signature required"?
 Neither UPS nor USPS automatically require a signature to deliver packages, so if you want the signature to be required, you will need to pay the extra $4.25 for UPS or $2.45 for USPS that they charge for "signature required", and please realize that they will then NOT leave the package at the door, and you may well have to go to the UPS or USPS facility yourself to pick it up if you aren't there to meet the delivery person. If you have any other special requirements, please tell us when you are paying for your order. IF YOU DO NOT SPECIFY THAT YOU WANT SIGNATURE REQUIRED, THEN YOUR PACKAGE WILL BE SENT WITHOUT SIGNATURE REQUIRED (unless your package has a dollar value over $300, in which case we will ALWAYS send it with signature required, due to the massive rise in "porch thefts", unless you specifically tell us not to, and you will need to fully accept responsibility for the package if it is stolen from your porch or lobby)!

You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These Sunday items need to be sent in a variety of ways (as noted on the individual auction pages and in the chart above) so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 3 weeks worth of purchases (assuming all the items fit into a single package; Learn More About Combining). If you win items over a span of more than 21 days, you will then be charged the actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packing materials.

*Most "flat" items can be combined with these auctions and we will combine them automatically if there is no chance of damage to any of them items you win:

Tuesday July 17th large French & Italian posters, Mexican lobby cards, record albums, and more
Thursday July 19th complete and incomplete lobby card sets
Tuesday July 24th three-sheets, six-sheets, and more
Thursday July 26th folded non-U.S. posters and lobbies
Sunday July 29th single lobby cards
Sunday August 7th single lobby cards
Tuesday August 14th "oversized flat" posters in Part II of August Major Auction
Thursday August 16th flat package items in Part III of August Major Auction

*Most "rolled" items can be combined with these auctions and we will combine them automatically if there is no chance of damage to any of them items you win:

Sunday July 22nd rolled one-sheets
Tuesday July 31st rolled non-U.S. posters
Thursday August 2nd inserts and half-sheets
Thursday August 9th special posters, 30x40s, and one-sheets
Tuesday August 14th "oversized rolled" posters in Part II of August Major Auction

*Likely NO items can be combined with these auctions:

Sunday August 5th bulk lots (NOTE: Some CAN be safely combined, and we will automatically combine if safe to do.)
Sunday August 12th linenbacked posters in Part I of August Major Auction
Tuesday August 14th linenbacked posters in Part II of August Major Auction

Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single set of Tuesday, Thursday, and/or Sunday auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge for all of the items (even if you get 100 or more, but solely from a single set!), but we also allow you to wait until the next three weeks of auctions end (a total of up to nine sets of auctions) so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions (if possible; see Learn More About Combining), and that means there is a chance you could combine items from up to nine of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items fit into the same type of package, but of course, there is a limit to how many items can fit in a single package or tube, and if you end up with several packages, you will need to pay that many shipping charges; Learn More About Combining). Since around half of our auctions have items that ship in tubes and the other half have items that ship in flat packages, and since few of those items can be combined, most of our regular buyers end up with at least two packages after three weeks. We KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do (and of course, there are others who charge far more!), but none of the ones with lower rates offer the same generous flat rate shipping we do, and we know that our packaging is the best there is, and our orders virtually never arrive damaged (and on the very rare times that they do, all our U.S. packages are fully insured, and FULL INSURANCE IS INCLUDED IN THE U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).

DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE COST OF SHIPPING AS STATED ABOVE.


Non-U.S. Shipping Details

Non-U.S. buyers must pay the actual cost of shipping their order (you can choose whatever method you prefer, but know that the U.S. Post Office has eliminated Surface Mail, so we can only send via Express or Airmail), plus $3 for the best packaging materials you have ever seen. All non-U.S. buyers must tell us if they want the package sent insured or uninsured at the time they pay for their order.

Have you heard about our Pay and Hold Program?
This lets non-U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 6 consecutive weeks (a total of 18 auctions and around 15,000+ items!), and we then send all your purchases at once saving you LOTS of money! Click HERE to learn more about becoming one of the hundreds of our non-U.S. buyers who are already part of this program.

Here is a chart containing estimated shipping charges for up to 3 items from this week's auctions (note these are ESTIMATES only, and your actual shipping may vary considerably;
ALSO NOTE THAT THESE ESTIMATED RATES ARE FOR "WINDOW CARD SIZE" ITEMS; IF YOU WIN LARGER ITEMS, THEY WILL COST CONSIDERABLY MORE TO SHIP;  IF YOU WIN SMALLER PACKAGE ITEMS, THEY CAN LIKELY BE SHIPPED FOR A LITTLE BIT LESS THAN THE BELOW ESTIMATES.

Also note that some items are REALLY large and will cost $100 or more to ship overseas, so please bear this in mind before bidding on these "actual cost of shipping" items
)
(Note: Insured quotes are based on a $200 value; you pay $1.60 more for each additional $100 of insurance)

Type of Shipping Canada/Mexico Australian/Asia/Japan Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Priority Mail Int'l - Uninsured $49.93 $58.10 $61.19
Priority Mail Express Int'l - Uninsured 65.27 80.90 74.49
First Class* (under 4 lbs ONLY) N/A N/A N/A
*First Class has a weight AND dimensional limitation. Because of the dimensional limitation and the size of these items, very few items in this set of auctions can be shipped via First Class (and given the value of the items in this set of auctions, it is not advisable to have them shipped via First Class). If there are any exceptions, we will automatically quote the First Class rate for you, but that is highly unlikely, so bear this in mind before bidding.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please bear these approximate shipping cost in mind BEFORE you place a bid (if you live outside the U.S.). The vast majority of our customers want a very securely packed tube, and will pay the extra shipping cost involved (and of course, it goes to the Post Office or UPS, and not us!). Please do not ask us to pack less securely, as that would likely result in a damaged order.
Some sellers are sending by Ground UPS to Canada, but that incurs large "brokerage fees", so we do not recommend it. Note that there are also some sellers sending non-U.S. packages via a "Letter" rate, but of course this is not legal, and we can not do this. We have outlined the possibilities for sending non-U.S. packages above, so please read that carefully, BEFORE placing a bid!

DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING (plus $3 for packaging materials)!
