About the non-U.S. lobby cards
Just about every collector knows that most
U.S. theaters stopped using lobby cards in the 1970s or earlier, and that
very few U.S. lobby cards were made after that time (and most of the ones
that were made were used outside the U.S.). But a fair number of
collectors do not know that the "lobby card format" remained popular in many
other countries (and is still popular in the present day). The main
difference between these sets from other countries and those from the U.S.
is that they often are printed on thin "poster-like" paper, and of course,
most have a foreign language instead of English (although many German lobby
card sets have solely English on them, for unknown reasons). If you
are a collector who likes lobby cards, but have not been able to find sets
on titles from the 1980s to the present, these non-U.S. lobby cards can be a
very attractive alternative (plus, in some cases, they have entirely
different scenes, or some different scenes from that of the U.S. lobby
cards, assuming that any U.S. lobby cards were made for that title).
About the condition of the Australian daybills
NOTE THAT MOST OF THE AUSTRALIAN DAYBILLS
WE ARE SELLING THIS WEEK ARE IN REALLY EXCELLENT CONDITION! Why is that?
Most of the daybills we are selling come from two very longtime Australian
collectors who collected these daybills over many years, and who found ones in
excellent condition. Rather than put "fine" on a huge percentage of the
daybills, we were especially harsh on our grading this week, and downgraded some
to "very good to fine" or "very good" for extremely minor defects
(but we DID grade really wonderful examples as "fine"!). We felt this
would be more helpful to our buyers, rather than simply see "fine" on a
percentage of the items! But if you see a daybill that is rated "very good to
fine", and you can't see anything wrong with it in our supersized image, know
that it probably IS in really wonderful condition, but that it has some
very minor defects!
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.
About the condition of the non-U.S. posters
and non-U.S. lobby cards
We give a detailed overall condition grade ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", and only a few which are
"good" or lesser) along with more details about the condition described in words (where we thought additional details were needed, because the defects were hard to see). We felt this would help bidders identify items they want to bid on more easily. Of course, we could not describe every single defect, so 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
still 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 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
U.S. buyers need to enclose $11 shipping (which includes full insurance)!
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 Thursday items need to be
sent in flat packages
combined with these auctions (but note the
higher cost of shipping of some auctions):
Sunday December 25th 'regular' Sunday auctions
Tuesday December 27th "oversized" posters such as 3sheets & Italian ($13)
Thursday December 29th lots of 2+ stills from the same
Tuesday January 3rd folded one-sheets
Thursday January 5th complete and incomplete
lobby card sets
Sunday January 8th 'regular' Sunday auctions
Tuesday January 10th "oversized" French &
Italian posters ($15)
Thursday January 12th window cards and

Sunday January 15th 'regular' Sunday
Tuesday January 17th folded one-sheets
*they must be sent separately from
these auctions for an additional shipping charge:
Sunday January 8th & 15th 'bulk lot' Sunday auctions
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 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 $3, for both the best packaging materials you have ever seen
and a separate printed invoice mailed to you.
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

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!
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING (the
actual cost of shipping plus $3 outside the U.S.)!
