About the collection of Polish and Czech posters
Some time ago we were 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!). We have sold many of these in previous auctions, but now we are
nearing the end of this amazing collection, and in almost all cases 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! And if you wait too long, we will have sold
all of this wonderful consignment, and then we may have a much smaller
number of such posters in the future (unless we get a new major consignor of
them, but we would say that is unlikely).
Are you one of the few collectors who have not yet discovered the wonderful
movie posters from Poland and Czechoslovakia? 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!
About the 774 non-U.S. posters (from
27 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 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 via
phone at +1 (417) 256-9616 during business hours (Monday to Friday, 9 AM CST
to 5 PM CST except from 12 to 1 when we take lunch), via
e-mail, or via fax at +1 (417) 257-6948.
U.S. orders with a flat rate shipping can quickly be completed via PayPal
system. At this time, PayPal is the only payment method supported by the
checkout but more payment methods and features will be added with time.
If your order requires a shipping quote and you have received your
quote, you may pay via PayPal manually to "firstname.lastname@example.org",
but know that PayPal has many glitches, so you need to e-mail us separately
stating that you completed payment
Here are step-by-step instructions if you need help paying manually
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, but please don't send cash (as we can't
be responsible for lost cash).
If your order requires a
shipping quote, please request it through
Checkout system. Please note that we are still developing this
checkout system, so while you may request your quote using it, we do not
quite have it ready to complete payment (although we hope to have that added
soon), but payment may still be completed using whatever method you have
used in the past. If you run into any sort of problem requesting your
quotes, please e-mail
Phillip right away so we can get it addressed.
U.S. Shipping Details
items in this set of auctions ship rolled in tubes for a flat $11 U.S.
shipping (due to the many postage rate increases from all couriers, we are
now charging $11 U.S. shipping rather than the $10 we charged for many
years; we will still lose money on the majority of packages sent for the $11
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).
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 $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. 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 Tuesday items need to be sent
rolled in tubes so...
combined with these auctions:
- Sunday April 10th rolled non-movie posters in Part III
of our Spring 2011 Mini/Major Auction (except for
1j001 to 1j045
which must be shipped separately in oversized tubes)
- Tuesday April 12th rolled non-U.S. posters in Part IV
of our Spring 2011 Mini/Major Auction
*they must be sent separately from
these auctions for an additional shipping charge:

- Tuesday March 29th folded non-U.S. posters & non-U.S.
- Thursday March 31st miscellaneous items
- Sunday April 3rd miscellaneous items
- Tuesday April 5th linenbacked items in Part I of our
Spring 2011 Mini/Major Auction
- Thursday April 7th items in Part II of our Spring
2011 Mini/Major Auction
- Thursday April 14th single stills
- Sunday April 17th 'regular' and 'bulk lot' Sunday auctions
- Thursday April 21st "oversized" items that ship in
large tubes or flat packages (if we can safely combine purchases from
this auction with those from other auctions, we will but then you will
have to pay the actual cost of shipping)
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. SHIPPING CHARGE).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS
UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $11 FLAT 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.
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! Click

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

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.)!
