About These Thursday Items
About the condition
Note that we have many excellent condition,
unrestored lobby cards this week. Most of these come to us from several very long time
collectors who were "condition conscious", and who tried to buy unrestored lobby cards whenever
possible! 62% of the cards in this auction are completely unrestored, and approximately 17%
of the cards in this auction are both "high grade" (either "fine" or "very good to fine", and OUR
high grade cards are graded very strictly!), and also completely unrestored!
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") 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 item for minor defects that we
did NOT describe.
Please remember that our grading system is FAR more
harsh than any other dealer we know of! We feel certain that our "very good to fine" condition grade
compares favorably to most dealers' "near mint" grade and our "fine" condition grade compares
favorably to most dealers' "mint" grade!
We did not describe most of the tiny defects these cards have in words
(unless they are on the back or are the sort that can't be seen in a digital image), so we strongly
recommend that you look at our super-sized image to see whatever tiny defects any of these cards may
If an item 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 item 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!
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.

details of flat rate shipping
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).
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 $4.25 for UPS or $2.45 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!
You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These Thursday items need to be sent in flat packages 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.
*they can be combined with these auctions:
Tuesday February 23rd folded one-sheets
Thursday February 25th single lobby cards
Sunday February 28th groups of 2 or more stills from the same title or star
Sunday March 6th all kinds of flat package items (there are a few rolled items that can NOT be combined)
Tuesday March 8th folded one-sheets
Thursday March 10th complete and incomplete lobby card sets
Sunday March 13th single stills
Tuesday March 15th window cards, jumbo LCs, French & Italian, and more
Thursday March 17th folded non-U.S. posters and lobbies
*they must be sent separately from these auctions for an
additional shipping charge:
Tuesday March 1st rolled non-U.S. posters
March 3rd rolled one-sheets
Sunday March 20th bulk lots (NOTE: Some items can be combined and if safe to do so, we will!)
Tuesday March 22nd rolled special posters
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
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

for each additional $100 of insurance)

First Class* (under 4 lbs ONLY)
*First Class has a weight limit of 4 lbs so the maximum number of lobby cards that can ship via First Class in
a flat package is fifty (50), but bear in mind that is at the maximum weight of 4 lbs which will cost more than the estimates above (the cost to
ship 50 lobby cards via First Class is approximately $50, depending on where you live).
Note: This is assuming there are no backing boards included. We generally ship "sets" of cards without
boards and "single" cards with boards. We estimate up to 25 cards with boards can go First Class.
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 (plus $3 for packaging
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
in flat packages, so you can add any Fixed Price item(s) that can also be sent
in flat packages 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.
