About These Tuesday Items
WE GUARANTEE THAT EVERY STILL IN THIS AUCTION IS ORIGINAL (just like the ones we sold in
our earlier weeks of still auctions)! Why? Because these stills are from several remarkable collections, which were purchased by VERY knowledgeable collectors, who could tell original stills from repros, reissues, or restrikes and it only contains original stills, and YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT! We know you will agree these are surely original stills, but if you have the slightest doubt, you can return ANY still within one week for a no questions asked refund!
We have sold many tens of thousands of stills, and we KNOW
these to be genuine, and we also know this to be a remarkable collection of
We give a detailed overall condition grade ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", and only a few which are less than "good to very good") 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.
About surface scuffs and creasing
As anyone who looks at old photos knows, twenty to eighty year old photos are almost certain to pick up faint scuffs and creases in the surface emulsion of the photo. Vintage stills are the same way. But when these creases and scuffs are light, you can't see them when you look directly at the still from straight on, but you CAN see them when you tilt the still to the light. We don't consider this a major defect, because we don't know anyone who displays their stills tilted to the light. So if a still has minor scuffs and creases that are not very visible when it is viewed straight on, we still grade it as "very good or very good to fine" (or a higher grade). The only exception to this is if there are scuffs and creases throughout the entire still. Then we grade it as "lesser" (or a lower grade), even if the scuffs and creases are not visible when looked at straight on. We DO feel most collectors can accept minor surface scuffs and creases that can hardly be seen from straight on and are relatively minor. If you disagree, you probably should think long and hard before bidding on the stills that we grade as "lesser", or "very good or very good to fine" (but you still likely will be happy with the stills we grade as "fine or better", because we won't give a still those grades if there are scuffs in the surface emulsion that are at all visible when the still is viewed head-on).
MANY OTHER SELLERS WOULD ASK $4.99, $6.99, $9.99, OR MORE EACH FOR REPRODUCTIONS OF STILLS THE SAME OR SIMILAR TO THESE, AND MOST
OTHER SELLERS START SIMILAR ORIGINAL VINTAGE STILLS AT $14.99 OR MORE EACH
but you may be able to buy one or more stills from us this week for as low
as $1 PER STILL (if you are the only bidder, but of course, there may well be other bidders; IN OUR AUCTIONS, THE FINAL PRICES ARE ALWAYS SET BY TWO REAL BIDDERS, NOT BY YOU BIDDING AGAINST AN ARTIFICIAL RESERVE OR "STARTING PRICE", which may well be "too high"). And these are vintage stills, which have collectible value, as opposed to reproduction stills, which have NO collectible value.

U.S. orders with a flat rate shipping can quickly be completed via PayPal

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

quotes, please e-mail

U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. customers pay only $7 for shipping ANY
quantity of stills!
Because these stills can be sent in smaller
packages than posters or lobby cards, we charge just $7 U.S. shipping for
any purchases of solely stills. But if you purchase other items from
other sets of auctions, and you want us to add the stills to those, then you
will have to pay the higher regular U.S. shipping. Also note that we
don't give any bonus items with these stills, so that they can still be sent
in a small package for the $7 U.S. shipping rate. Finally, note that
we fully insure all U.S. orders, and we lose money on the shipping of most
orders of multiple stills (even if you buy 20 or 50 of these, you will only
pay $7 U.S. shipping for ALL of them!), but this way we reward those
who buy many items.
Missouri 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 in small flat packages so...
*they can be combined with these auctions (but note the higher cost of shipping of
Tuesday January 24th single vintage 8" x 10" stills
Thursday January 26th lots of 2" vintage 8" x 10" stills from the same title
Sunday January 29th German & Austrian programs ($11)
Sunday February 5th 'regular' Sunday auctions ($11)
Tuesday February 7th folded one-sheets ($11)
Thursday February 9th folded non-U.S. posters and non-U.S. lobbies ($11)

Thursday February 16th misc. items including Spanish heralds ($11 or $7)
Thursday February 23rd lots of 2 or more stills from the same title

Sunday February 5th 'bulk lot' Sunday auctions
Sunday February 12th rolled 27" x 41" one-sheets
Sunday February 19th rolled 27" x 40" one-sheets
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).

UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $7 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),
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.
For Canada or Mexico, we estimate the "actual
cost of shipping" to be approximately $12 for up to 20 stills.
For everywhere else in the world, we estimate
the "actual cost of shipping" to be approximately $14 for up to 20 stills.
