About These Sunday Items
About the what this set of auctions contains
The items in this set of auctions are all either magazines, comic books, or paperback books. We charge the actual cost of shipping plus $3 for
packing materials on all orders in this set of auctions, but all of the magazines and paperback books can be sent via Media Mail in the U.S. (but
NOT the comic books). We WISH we could tell you that we have lots more of these items, but in each case we have auctioned virtually all we
have of each of those types, and it took us several years to accumulate even these quantities, so if you don't buy
them now, you may wait many months or several years before we auction any more of them!
Where do these come from? Most of the comic books and underground comic books came from several long time collectors who
each "specialized" in those sizes. The magazines were mostly a single odd item (or two or three) that a consignor sent along with other items. Many of these are
About the condition of the items
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" or lesser) along with more details about the condition described in words (but pretty much
a general description of the defects, and we only describe specific defects if they are
the type 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.
Of course, with the items that have many pages, we could not photograph
every single page, but we often photograph both covers and an interior
two-page spread, which should surely give you an excellent idea of the
overall condition of that item.
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose the actual cost of shipping, which includes full insurance!
NOTE: You will be quoted the actual cost of shipping when you request it.
IMPORTANT! Paperback books and magazines can be sent by Media Mail, which is far less expensive than other U.S. shipping methods. But packages sent by Media Mail are
not handled as carefully as those sent by other methods. So we will gladly send inexpensive items by Media Mail, but we will not send expensive
ones that way, unless the buyer specifically accepts responsibility in case the items are lost or damaged.
customers: You must pay an additional 7.662% 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 $5.00 for UPS or $2.60 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. 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 (unless your package has a dollar value over $300, in which case we will ALWAYS send it
with signature required, due to the massive rise in "porch thefts", unless you specifically tell us not to, and you will need to fully accept responsibility for the package if it is stolen from your porch or
You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These Sunday items need to be sent in flat packages so...
*they can be combined with these auctions (but note that if you win other items that have a higher flat rate
shipping, you will need to pay the higher cost of shipping from those items):
Tuesday April 2nd single lobby cards
Thursday April 4th "oversized, flat" items
(NOTE: Some can NOT be safely combined; we will automatically combine what can be safely done.)
Sunday April 7th Spanish heralds and all sorts of different items
Sunday April 14th window cards
Tuesday April 16th French one-panels and more
Thursday April 18th non-U.S. posters, lobbies, and stills
Sunday April 21st single lobby cards
Tuesday April 23rd three-sheets, six-sheets, and more
Thursday April 25th folded one-sheets
*they must be sent separately from these auctions for an additional shipping charge:
Tuesday March 26th inserts, half-sheets, Italy, Japan, Belgium
Thursday March 28th rolled
one-sheets and special posters
Sunday March 31st bulk lots (NOTE: Some CAN be safely combined, and we will automatically combine if safe to do.)
Thursday April 4th "three dimensional" items
Thursday April 4th "oversized, rolled" items
Tuesday April 9th rolled non-U.S. posters
Thursday April 11th rolled
one-sheets and 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 to have your purchases shipped until the next four weeks of auctions end (a total of up to twelve 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
twelve 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 four 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 ACTUAL COST OF U.S. SHIPPING (plus $3 for heavy duty packing materials; unless otherwise specified)!
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 8 consecutive weeks
(a total of 24 auctions and around 24,000+ items!), and we then send all your
purchases at once saving you LOTS of money! Click

(Note: Insured quotes are based on a $200 value; you pay $1.60 more
for each additional $100 of insurance)
IMPORTANT: If you buy any books (or similar items that have some weight to them), shipping may be a LOT more than the quotes shown below, because those items are
heavier and the cost of shipping is based on the weight of the package, so please bear this in mind before bidding on heavier items.

Everywhere Else (inc Europe)

First Class (under 4 lbs ONLY)
*First Class has a weight limit of 4 lbs so the maximum number of items that can ship via First Class in
a flat package is twenty (20), 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 20 items via First Class is approximately $50, depending on where you live). Of course, some items weigh more than others, so these are just
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!
