Details About These Thursday Items
About the rolled one-sheet posters
Note that most of the posters we are selling this week were never folded. A very few 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. WE ALWAYS
IDENTIFY WHETHER A POSTER IS UNFOLDED, TRI-FOLDED, OR FORMERLY FULLY FOLDED WITHIN THE DESCRIPTION
FOR EACH ITEM!
About the originality of never folded one-sheets (commonly
referred to as "rolled" or "unfolded")
Many collectors would like to add posters from their favorite movies of the 1970s onward to
their collection, but they rightfully are afraid they will be sold commercial posters (or
reproductions or bootlegs), rather than actual posters either used in theaters or intended for
theater use. WHEN YOU BUY FROM US THIS WEEK, YOU HAVE A GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE BUYING A
GENUINE ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER! This is because almost all of these posters come to us either
from theater owners, or from advanced collectors (often ones who purchased the posters right when
the movies first came out), people who know how to distinguish an original poster, and also, we here
at eMoviePoster very carefully scrutinize every poster to make 100% certain it is genuine! But you
don't have to take our word for it! If you purchase any
poster from this set of auctions, and you have the slightest doubts about its originality after you
receive it, it is fine for you to return it for a full refund within 7 days of receipt
(but we virtually never get even a single poster returned, because we reject any poster that is
consigned to us if we have the slightest doubts about it!).
About the condition
Normally when we sell movie paper, we grade
the posters on a scale that allows for some defects typical of 30 to 75-year-old movie posters that
were actually used in theaters. Such posters often have some minor wear at the very least, and it is
next to impossible to find posters that have no wear at all, and it would be silly to have a grading
scale where no posters would qualify for "very good to fine" (or better grades), so we use a more
"relaxed" scale that allows for very minor defects in our "very good to fine" grade.
this auction, we are selling a fair number of posters from the past 20 years, and those posters can
more often be found in excellent condition, because there were dealers and collectors who purchased
these posters unused, and kept them in wonderful condition.
So for THIS auction, we
grade on a MUCH stricter scale than we do for our folded one-sheet auctions! We downgrade
posters to "very good to fine" for very minor defects (things like a single tiny tear in the border,
or faint creases in the edges). We further downgrade to "very good" posters that have several of
these types of defects, even though the poster would probably qualify as "fine", if it was from the
We use this "sliding scale" grading because it allows us to better convey the poster's true
condition to our buyers. If we used the exact same scale for all posters, then most 1920s posters
would be graded as "fair" or "poor", and most 1980s or 1990s posters would be graded as "fine", and
we realize that that benefits nobody!
In this auction, we have given a more detailed overall
condition grade ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", "good", and "fair",
with only a few "poor") for each poster. 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.
Know that we generally grade FAR more harshly than any
other dealer we know! A 1990s poster that we grade as "good" or "good to very good" may well be one
that many collectors could display on their wall just as it is, and may well be one that many other
dealers would grade as "very good". So please don't reject a poster because it has a grade of "good"
or "good to very good". Please study our supersized image and see if the defects are the sort that
you can accept.
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $12 shipping (which includes full insurance), no matter how many
items you purchase from this set of auctions! NOTE: Our $12 flat rate shipping is good for three
weeks. If you haven't paid within three weeks after your oldest unshipped purchase, you will
then be quoted the actual cost of shipping
when you request it.
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).
Do you need "signature required"?
UPS nor USPS automatically require a signature to deliver packages, so if you want the
signature to be required, you will need to pay the extra $3.87 for UPS or $2.35 for USPS that
they charge for "signature required", and please realize that they will then NOT leave
the package at the door, and you may well have to go to the UPS or USPS facility yourself to
pick it up if you aren't there to meet the delivery person. 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! Also, if your package is over
$700 to the U.S., we will send it by Registered Mail, which DOES require a signature. If this is
something you DON'T want, you must let us know.
You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These Thursday items need to be sent rolled in tubes 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.

Tuesday December 4th rolled non-U.S. posters
Sunday December 14th "rolled, unbacked" items in

Tuesday December 16th inserts and half-sheets

Tuesday December 9th linenbacked posters in December Major Auction Part II

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).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS
UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $12 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 Program?
This lets non-U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 6 consecutive weeks (a total of 18
auctions and around 15,000+ items!), and we then send all your purchases at once saving you
LOTS of money! Click

already part of this program)
Here is a chart containing estimated
shipping charges for up to 3 items from this set of auctions. NOTE:
These are ESTIMATES only; actual shipping may cost more or less.
ALSO NOTE: Insurance will increase the cost of shipping by approximately $1.60 for each
$100 of insurance.

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 United States?
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.

Add More to Your Order
In addition to our current auctions, we offer many other
non-auction items. Please note that the items in this set of auctions will be sent
rolled in tubes,
so you can add any Fixed Price item(s) that can also be sent rolled in
for little or no additional shipping costs (NOTE: if we can add it to your package
without raising the cost of shipping, then we will do so with no added shipping charge, but if
it raises the cost OR if it requires additional packages, then you will need to pay the
difference). We have noted below whether items ship rolled, flat, or both.
