BONUS OFFER TO EVERY BUYER IN THESE AUCTIONS!
Every buyer from EITHER of the two parts of our "Special Non-U.S. Fall
Mini/Major Auction" receives a
great full-color printed t-shirt as a free bonus (even if you only purchase one
Every buyer in the
two parts of this special auction will receive the great full-color
T-shirt pictured at right, which shows the image from the Follow the Fleet
Danish poster (we
will only be making as many t-shirts as there are different buyers in the
two parts of the auction, so
it will be a VERY limited edition, and likely will become a
"collector's item" in its own right!). Given that you get this great full-color
T-shirt with any purchase, shouldn't you absolutely find any one item to
purchase from us from among the 765 items in these
two special auctions?
*Note: we give this shirt (which costs
us $9 to $11 each at wholesale, because they are very high quality) to anyone
who purchases one or more items in the two parts of this auction.
BUT KNOW THAT YOU ONLY GET ONE SHIRT, NO MATTER HOW MANY ITEMS
YOU PURCHASE, AND WHETHER OR NOT YOU PURCHASE FROM ONE OR BOTH OF THE PARTS OF
THIS SPECIAL AUCTION.
Please also note that, because many of the
posters in this auction are un-backed and rolled, we will NOT send the
t-shirt together with your purchase. We will hold it on your account if
you solely purchase unbacked rolled posters, and we will add it to the next flat
package you receive from us.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S EVEN MORE!
The above offer is for anyone who purchases any ONE item from either
part of this mini/major auction. But if you are a member of our
weekly e-mail club,
we will be offering our most generous bonus offers ever to those who purchase
just FIVE items from either or both of the two parts combined (you need
just purchase a total of three items from both parts). We will have
multiple great offers for those who purchase as few as three items, and as many
as twelve or more, and you get these just for being a member of the club (so if
you are not already a member, and over 5,500 collectors already are, then why

Special Notes About This Tuesday's Items
HERE IS A CHART OF THE ITEMS IN THIS AUCTION:
(to better help you find the sizes and countries that interest you;
all of the below posters are unbacked, with the sole exception of the very
7g001 Danish Flying Down to Rio (this ONE poster is linenbacked;

other Danish posters!)

7g037-7g046 Indian, Romanian, Cuban, Turkish, Austrian, Mexican
7g047-7g054 East German (8x11, 16x23, & 23x32)

Week's 543 Non-U.S. Posters (from
20 different countries)
Note that many of the posters we are selling this week were never folded.
SOME of the posters were once folded (or partially folded, as in
tri-folding), but all of those have been stored flat for a long time and will be
shipped rolled in tubes, along with the completely unfolded ones. We will
NOT re-fold any of the "formerly folded" posters, except in the
very rare cases
where the poster has not "lost" its folds due to laying flat, and where the
poster would cost less to send if it is re-folded, than to send it in a tube.
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",
and "good", with only a few graded "fair" or lesser) along with more details about the condition described in words (but pretty much
a general description of the defects, and we only describe specific defects if they are
the type 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.
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 "email@example.com"),
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)!
THIS WEEK ONLY, all buyers (U.S. AND non-U.S.) must pay the
actual cost of
sending your order, plus $2 for the packaging materials.
Why don't we have a "flat rate" for U.S. orders this
week? Because we are only selling posters that are in many
cases quite rare and sometimes expensive, which must be sent in our custom-made extra heavy duty gorilla proof
mailing tubes which are much stronger than the ones used by most sellers (*read
more about our "gorilla proof" tubes that stand up to the greatest
of abuse, and we wrap all expensive items in plastic, so that even a
submerged tube may arrive undamaged!). Shipping will vary greatly depending on how
many items you get, what weight of linen the posters were mounted on, if
they fit in the same package, and where you live. Generally it will cost
around $14 to send a standard-sized tube anywhere in the U.S. by either U.S.
mail or UPS, fully insured (all U.S. orders MUST be fully insured).
Can we send your order in a less expensive way? We have
purchased movie paper items many hundreds of times over the Internet
ourselves, and we have seen the tubes that other
sellers use (both the free kind and the kind purchased at shipping supply
stores), and the protection offered by those tubes is spotty at best (those
cheaper tubes will often get bent resulting in creasing or tearing to the
poster, or in extreme cases, a tube can even lose a cap from an end
resulting in the buyer receiving a tube but no posters!), so please do not
ask us to use a lighter weight tube or less expensive packing materials to save on
shipping, because we won't do it! We know that once you see our tubes
you will agree that they are a great investment in protecting your purchase(s) and you will wonder why other sellers of vintage movie paper do
not use these same tubes (and if somehow you don't agree with us, we ask you
not to bid at all)!
You CAN usually combine shipment!
|NOTE: These Tuesday items will
mostly need to be sent rolled in tubes so...
*it can NOT be
combined with any of our current or recent auctions because we
never combine expensive items that ship rolled with items that ship flat
due to the great chance of damage to the "flat" items
*so purchases from this
Tuesday auction must be sent separately from
these auctions (for an additional shipping charge):
Sunday September 13th glass slides, German programs, presskits,
magazines, & bulk lots
Tuesday September 15th folded one-sheets
Thursday September 17th folded one-sheets
Sunday September 20th stills and bulk lots
Thursday September 24th linenbacked and "oversized" non-U.S. posters
(we never combine unbacked items with backed items due to the chance of
damage, and the unbacked items in this auction must go in flat packages)
Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single
set of EITHER 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 six 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 six 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 CURRENT ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING PLUS $2 FOR
PACKAGING MATERIALS (and remember this also applies to U.S. buyers, this
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.
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)

Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Airmail - Uninsured

Airmail - Insured

$32.82 / $32.59
$9.95 / $14.90
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
United States? 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.)!
