About This Special All-Autograph Auction
About this special auction of 945
This is the FIFTEENTH "all-signed"
auction from eMoviePoster.com! It contains 945 signed
items of all types, covering not only all sorts of movies, but also from celebrities in politics,
sports, and others! We can't imagine anyone who has the slightest interest in
autographed items not finding several items to bid on, and more likely, you may
find that there are so many items of interest to you that it is hard to decide
which ones you most want to pursue.
About the authenticity of the 945
autographed items being offered
A high percentage of the autographed items come to us from
several different collectors/dealers who spent decades acquiring their
autographs. We have put a paragraph (or sentence) on each
auction, giving the history of how the consignor obtained the autograph (to
whatever degree we know).
IN EVERY CASE, WE HAVE GIVEN ALL OF THE INFORMATION WE KNOW ABOUT WHERE THE
AUTOGRAPH WAS OBTAINED IN THE AUCTION DESCRIPTION FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL ITEM.
A very few
items come with a "Certificate of Authenticity", and we have
provided an image of those, and identified the name of the issuer of that
certificate (but know that there are "good" people who issue such certificates and people who may
not be "good", so don't automatically assume that having this means the item is authentic; you
can research the person who issued it by searching for them on the Internet). Please read over each auction description carefully, so you will
know all we know about the provenance of that item.
KNOW THAT WE ARE NOT "AUTOGRAPH EXPERTS"! We strongly suggest
that all bidders do whatever research they want to do about the autographs
BEFORE placing bids (such as comparing the signatures to other known
signatures found on the Internet).
But we also know how hard it is to be certain of an autograph's
authenticity when you are not seeing the item in person. So, to make certain
that we only have satisfied buyers, we will
give anyone who purchases any of these a 30 day return privilege (from the
date the auction closes) on any of these autographed items, and of
course, that gives every buyer plenty of time to be 100% certain that they
have purchased a genuine autograph!
Of course, we don't want people returning items because
they "changed their minds", and it is vital that any returned items must be
returned safely (ideally in the same packing) and received in the exact same
condition it was sent, and the return offer will expire exactly 30 days after
the auction closes (because we must pay our consignors, and there will be no exceptions).
Approximately 66% of the items offered are vintage
items, and approximately 34% of the items are later reproductions (but
some of the reproductions date from the 1970s), and WE ALWAYS CLEARLY
IDENTIFY WHICH IS WHICH.
But, IN EVERY CASE, every one of these items was personally signed
by the person listed! We know they make wonderful special gifts to those
friends or family who you know really like a specific celebrity!
HERE IS A CHART OF THE ITEMS IN THIS AUCTION:
(to better help you find the types of items that interest you)
NOTE: EVERY item in this auction has an
authentic signature on it which was hand signed onto that item by the
celebrity (approximately 34% of the items are reproductions which the celebrities signed,
but those are clearly marked, and all items that are not marked "REPRODUCTION"
are original vintage items). THIS IS A REALLY NICE OFFERING, and if you have the
slightest interest in autographed items, then you won't want to miss this

About the shipping of items in this set of auctions
Due to the different types of packages the items in this
auction ship in, some items will ship in flat packages for $8, $12, or $16 to the U.S., some items
will ship rolled in tubes for $12 to the U.S., and some will be the "actual cost of shipping" even
for those in the U.S. We have noted in the above chart and on each individual item's auction page
how they will be shipped. We will be sure to combine items into a single package whenever
possible, but realize if you purchase multiple types of U.S. shipping items, you will be charged
the highest rate. Note that there are also 39 signed books that can be sent separately via Media
Mail in the U.S., which is often LESS than the above rates (but we will need to give
shipping quotes for those books for that reason).
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 on
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).
U.S. Shipping Details
THERE IS AN IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE IN THIS SET OF AUCTIONS
(all autographed auction). The items being
auctioned ship in a variety of ways, and you should refer to each individual auction page or the
chart above to know how it will be
shipped. After winning and depending on what you win, you may need to
request a shipping quote through our
Learn the exact
details of flat rate shipping
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 a variety of ways (as noted on the individual auction pages
and in the chart above) so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 3 weeks worth of
purchases (assuming all the items fit into a single package;
About Combining). If you win items over a span of more than 21 days, you will then be
charged the actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packing materials.

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 (even if you get 100 or more, but solely from a single set!), but we also allow
you to wait until the next three weeks of auctions end (a total of up to nine sets of auctions)
so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions (if
About Combining), and that means there is a chance you could combine items from up to
nine of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items
fit into the same type of package, but of course, there is a limit to how many items can fit in
a single package or tube, and if you end up with several packages, you will need to pay that
many shipping charges;
Learn More About Combining). Since around half of our auctions have items that ship in
tubes and the other half have items that ship in flat packages, and since few of those items can
be combined, most of our regular buyers end up with at least two packages after three weeks. We
KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do (and of
course, there are others who charge far more!), but none of the ones with lower rates offer the
same generous flat rate shipping we do, and 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).
