YOU GET "Vintage
Hollywood Posters IV" AS A BONUS
"Crazy Bruce Hershenson" says, "We are currently selling 50 glass slides, 50 movie magazines, 50
presskits, 50 German programs, and 14 bulk lots, and I thought I would offer each buyer this week our full-color
Vintage Hollywood Posters IV movie poster book (which served as
an auction catalog for our 14th major auction) as an added bonus!"
The 80 page full-color catalog has a cover price of $20 and thousands
were sold at that price! It contains a remarkable assortment of posters, many of which
have never been auctioned or pictured before! There is an incredible
collection of original Abbott & Costello one-sheets, three-sheets, title
cards and best scene cards, a great group of over 25 1930s Buck Jones
posters (including the very best), as well as lots and lots of the
finest posters and lobby cards known from the 1910s through the 1960s! We offer every one of our buyers this week a copy of this great
full-color book, Vintage Hollywood Posters IV 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 IV AND a movie paper item for as little as $1 for both plus shipping (if you are the only bidder)!
Special Notes About The Items in This Week's Sunday Auctions
How are these Sunday auctions different from our Tuesday and
The short answer is that they are almost exactly like our Tuesday and
Thursday auctions, but with one important difference. This is that they do
NOT end at 7 PM CST like those other auctions do, but instead
they begin ending at 3 PM CST, which means that our European bidders will not
have to get up in the middle of the night to bid at the end of our auctions
(and of course, most of our American bidders will not be working on Sundays,
so they will have easy access to their computers as well).
About the Condition
Note that we give an 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
item for minor defects that we did NOT describe.
If an item 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
item 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. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $9 shipping (which includes full insurance)!
NOTE ABOUT THE SHIPPING OF THE BULK LOTS WE ARE SELLING
that we have our usual standard shipping on all of the "regular" Sunday
items, but the bulk lots have stated shipping that is far higher (because
they are so heavy and/or bulky). You can combine as many of the regular
items as you want and pay a single shipping charge, but the bulk lots can
NOT be combined with the other items, because they are completely
packaged by themselves.
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!
Will your order be
shipped to you by UPS?
UPS does NOT automatically require a signature
to deliver packages, so if you want the signature to be required, you will
need to pay the extra $2.50 UPS charges for "signature required" Delivery
Confirmation, and please realize that they will then NOT leave the
package, and you may well have to go to the UPS facility yourself to pick it
up. But if you prefer this, that is fine, and 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!
You CAN usually combine shipment!
(NOTE: These Sunday items [except
for the bulk lots] must be sent in flat packages and can NOT be combined
with the half-sheet, insert, Japanese, or Italian posters we auctioned on
8/25 & 8/27, but CAN be combined with the Sunday items [except for the bulk
lots] we auctioned on 8/30, and CAN be combined with the folded one-sheets
we are auctioning on 9/1 & 9/3)
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, but we also allow you to wait until
the next three sets of auctions end (a total of four sets of auctions) so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions
(if possible), and 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 U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS
UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $9 U.S. SHIPPING!
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 $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.
NOTE ABOUT THE SHIPPING OF THE BULK LOTS WE ARE SELLING
that, as usual, we allow you to combine all of the "regular" Sunday items,
but the bulk lots can't be combined, and MUST be sent by themselves.
Also note that the shipping charge for any of the bulk lots outside of the
U.S. will be the actual cost of shipping, and, of course, overseas shipping
is almost always much more than U.S. shipping, so PLEASE ONLY BID ON ANY
OF THE BULK LOTS IF YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY THE SUBSTANTIAL ACTUAL COST OF

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!
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 your purchases.
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING (the
actual cost of shipping plus $2 outside the U.S.)!
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 be sent in flat packages,
so you can add any item that can also be sent in a
flat package for no additional shipping costs. We have noted in each
paragraph below whether the items can be shipped rolled or not.
Incredible Discount on Learn About Movie Posters Book!

while ago, we offered
great discounts on many of our books, and the best seller from that promotion was
Learn About Movie Posters book, which regularly sells for $29.95, but

Fixed Price Posters
