About The 750 Non-U.S. Posters (from
6 different countries)
Note that many of the posters we are auctioning in this set of auctions 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 Collection of Polish, Czech, & Cuban Posters
We have been consigned a very large collection of
Polish and Czech posters (including lots and lots of titles we
have never seen, many with wonderful graphics by the top Polish and Czech poster
artists!), which we have sold in several previous auctions, and will sell over our next several non-U.S. auctions, but there
is only ONE of each poster, so if you miss out getting one you want,
PLEASE don't ask us if we know where to find you another one, because we
surely won't know where to find it!
Â Â Â Â
Are you one of the few collectors who have not yet discovered the wonderful
movie posters from Poland? If so, we urge you to carefully look at this
great collection, and consider adding at least one to your collection.
Most Polish and Czech posters have completely different images from those printed in the
U.S., and they are often 100% different from the corresponding U.S. poster (and
often, the image is really wild!). It is interesting to note that Polish and
posters are often very surreal, and sometimes have next-to-no connection to the
movie they are advertising (in some cases, it seems that the poster artist was
told the NAME of the movie, but nothing else about the movie, and they
created whatever image that title suggested to them, and many Polish and Czech posters
have really striking, and often dark images that can be displayed and enjoyed,
even if you are not at all a fan of the movie they advertise). WARNING!
Once you buy a few of these, you are in danger of becoming "hooked", and you may
find you need to keep purchasing them on a regular basis. If this happens
to you, don't say we didn't warn you!
Â Â Â Â NOTE TOO THAT WE HAVE BEEN CONSIGNED A COLLECTION OF
RARE CUBAN POSTERS, AND MANY OF THESE HAVE GREAT GRAPHICS TOO!Â We
have auctioned just a small number of Cuban posters in the past (we wish we
could get more of them, but they seem to be extremely rare!).
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)!
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $10 shipping
(which includes full insurance)!Â
Â Â Â Â Â Missouri customers: You
must pay an additional 7.162% sales tax on your purchases.Â 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).
Will your order be shipped to you by UPS?
Â Â Â Â 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 $3.00 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.Â 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
IF YOU DO NOT SPECIFY THAT YOU WANT SIGNATURE REQUIRED,
THEN YOUR PACKAGE WILL BE SENT WITHOUT
You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These Tuesday
items need to be sent rolled in tubes so...
combined with these auctions:
- Thursday August 19th rolled
27" x 40" one-sheets
*they must be sent separately from
these auctions for an additional shipping charge:
- Sunday August 1st multiple stills
- Tuesday August 10th folded one-sheets
- Thursday August 12th multiple stills
- Sunday August 15th Sunday items and bulk lots
*they may or may not be combined with
the items in any of the three parts of our Summer 2010 Mini/Major
Auction because those items need to be sent in different types of packages
which means that we can NOT tell you what your order can be
combined with until we know exactly what you purchase from any of the
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 five 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.
DON'T BID ON OUR
ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $10 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.Â
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
This lets non-U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 4 consecutive weeks
(a total of 12 auctions and around 8,000+ items!), and we then send all your
purchases at once saving you LOTS of money!Â Click

non-U.S. buyers who are already part of this program)

Â Â Â Â 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.
Â Â Â
Some sellers are sending by Ground UPS to Canada, but that incurs large
"brokerage fees", so we do not recommend it.Â 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.Â 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.)!
