PLUS YOU GET "Vintage
Hollywood Posters VIII" AS A BONUS
"Crazy Bruce Hershenson" says, "We are currently selling
999 folded one-sheets, and I thought I would offer each buyer this week our full-color
Vintage Hollywood Posters VIII movie poster book as an added
bonus!" This collection contains 424 great images spread over
80 pages and is the auction catalog for our December 2004 mega-auction!
This auction was held on 12/18 on eBay. Your copy will include a sheet
that gives all of the prices realized at the auction. This was Bruce
Hershenson's 18th major movie poster auction, but this auction contains
a large number of images never seen in any previous book or catalog!
We offer every one of our buyers this week a copy of this great
full-color book, Vintage Hollywood Posters VIII as a bonus, even if you just buy one
$1 item! If you don't already own this great book (or maybe even if you do!), then you should find any one of our
hundreds of items to buy, just to get the bonus book! You may
get Vintage Hollywood Posters VIII AND this item for as little as $1 plus shipping (if you are the only bidder)!
Special Notes About This Tuesday's Items
About the Listing Order
Note that we put 14 one-sheets that date from 1913 to 1940 at the very start
of the listings (in chronological order), and the rest of the one-sheets
follow, in alphabetical order.
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!
We accept all major credit cards, either directly over the phone
at 417-256-9616 during our regular business hours which are Monday to Friday, 9 AM CST to 5
PM CST except between 12 and 1 when we take lunch, or you can e-mail us
payment details, and there are still a few people who fax us!
If you like to pay via Paypal (our PayPal e-mail is "firstname.lastname@example.org"),
that is fine, but know that PayPal has many glitches, and you should
ABSOLUTELY e-mail us separately when you send us a PayPal payment!
You can send a check
or money order
(if you do, enclose your address and details about what you purchased) to:
P.O. Box 874
West Plains, MO 65775
If it is your
best payment option, you can pay by Western Union
(unlike SOME auction
sites, we are not prejudiced against Western Union!). But please don't send cash (as we can't be
responsible for lost cash)!
U.S. buyers need to enclose $9 shipping (which includes full insurance)!
Why do we charge $9, when we used to charge $9 to $11 on eBay?
We spend $9
(or more) on almost all U.S. orders, because we use such good, heavy
packaging (at least twice as strong as that used by most sellers), even on
low priced orders (because we believe a low priced item still deserves the
We USED to charge $11 for shipping on U.S.
orders over $100 when we sold on eBay, but now that we are auctioning on our
own site we have lowered that to $9, which is both our way of thanking those
who order a lot from us, and also our way of passing on our savings from not
paying eBay commissions to our customers!
You CAN usually combine shipment!
This week's Thursday items can
NOT be combined with the rolled posters we sold on 10/30 and they can NOT be
combined with the linenbacked posters we are selling on 11/4; they CAN
likely be combined with some of the "oversized" items we are selling on 11/4
[but if they are combined with those items, you will have to pay the actual
shipping cost of all the items] and CAN be combined with the items we are
auctioning on 11/6,
and CAN be combined with the folded one-sheets we will be auctioning 11/6 to
Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single week, and still pay only a single shipping charge for all of the items, but we also allow you to wait until
next week's auctions end so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions
(if possible), and since we do two sets of auctions every week, that means there
is a chance you could combine items from up to four of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items fit into the same type of package). We KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do, but 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 $9 U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).
DON'T BID ON
OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $9 U.S. SHIPPING!
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 $2 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.
Here is a chart
containing estimated shipping charges for up to 3 items from this
(Note: Insured quotes are based on a $200 value; you pay
$1.60 more for each additional $100 of insurance)

THAT WE GIVING A BONUS BOOK (Vintage Hollywood Posters
ALL OF OUR BUYERS THIS WEEK, as a way to encourage
bidders to participate in our auctions and to thank our customers for their
support! However please note
that for non-U.S. buyers, we can only include the bonus book with non-U.S. orders if the
buyer is willing to pay the roughly $10 or more added shipping charge (because
the book will add around 1 pound to the weight of the package!).
Do you have a friend or relative who lives in the
Some of our customers either visit the U.S. regularly, or have friends or
relatives within the U.S., and often those customers have us send their orders
to a U.S. address, and then they transport the posters from there. THIS CAN
SAVE YOU A GREAT DEAL ON SHIPPING! This is fine with us, but realize that
you still need to let us know within one week of receipt if you want to return
anything, so don't use this method unless you are certain you will want to keep
DON'T BID ON

Add More to Your
In addition to our current auctions, we offer
many other non-auction items. Please note that the items in this week's
auction will mostly be sent rolled in tubes, so you can add any item that
can easily be rolled for no additional shipping costs. We have noted in each
paragraph below whether the items can be shipped rolled or not.

is a good time to pick up items you may have missed! We have copies of a great
full-color magazine entirely devoted to the great legendary poster artist, Bob
Peak! This magazine (called Illustration Magazine #6) has tons of
full-color images, all shot directly from Peak's originals, and has a great
in-depth overview of Peak's entire career, written by his son! It sells for $9
and it is almost completely sold out, but if you want a copy, just enclose $9
with your order! We also have copies of Illustration Magazine #7, which

December issue added to your order for $3.00 (with NO additional shipping), just let us know when you pay for your order and we will include it!
Fixed Price Posters
(most can be shipped rolled but not all can be sent flat; if an
item has a "UF" or "TF" in the description, it can only be shipped rolled, but
if it has a "FF" in the description, it can likely be sent rolled or flat;
check with us if you are unsure)
