About the condition
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", "good", and
"fair", with only a few graded "poor") 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 poster for minor defects that we did NOT describe.
If a poster 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 poster 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
KNOW THAT IN THIS SET OF AUCTIONS ONLY
(Part III of our 20th Annual Halloween Auction), 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 two weeks. If you haven't paid within two 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
Missouri 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"?
Neither 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 lobby)!
You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These items need to be sent rolled in tubes so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 2 weeks worth of purchases (assuming all the items fit into a single
Learn More About Combining). If you win items over a
span of more than 14 days, you will then be charged the actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packing materials.
*they can be combined with these auctions:
Tuesday October 8th rolled non U.S. posters from many countries
Thursday October 10th rolled one sheets and rolled special posters
Sunday October 20th "really oversized" posters (if they ship in tubes) (Note: some can NOT be safely combined. We will only combine items if it is safe to do without
causing any damage.)
Tuesday October 22nd all signed items (if they ship in tubes)
Thursday October 24th inserts, 1/2-sheets, Japanese, French, Belgian &
Tuesday October 29th
Thursday October 31st special posters AND rolled one-sheets
Sunday November 3rd unbacked oversized rolled posters in Halloween
Part I (but only if they can be combined safely)
*they must be sent separately from these auctions for an additional shipping charge:
Sunday October 6th U.S. heralds, comic books, and presskit collection
Sunday October 13th bulk lots (NOTE: Some CAN be safely combined, and
we will automatically combine if safe to do.)
Tuesday October 15th window cards, Mexican LCs & French 1p
Sunday October 20th "really oversized" posters (if they ship flat) (Note: some can NOT be safely combined. We will only combine items if it is safe to do without
causing any damage.)
Tuesday October 22nd all signed items
(if they ship flat)
Sunday October 27th single lobby cards
Sunday November 3rd linenbacked posters and items that ship in flat
packages or boxes in Halloween
Sunday November 5th lobby cards, folded one-sheets, and more in Halloween
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 COST OF SHIPPING AS STATED ON THE INDIVIDUAL AUCTION PAGES (or using the chart above).
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

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
ALSO NOTE: Insurance will increase the cost of shipping by approximately $1.60 for each
$100 of insurance.
Type of Shipping
Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Priority Mail Int'l - Uninsured
Priority Mail Express Int'l - Uninsured
First Class* (under 4 lbs ONLY)
*First Class has a weight limit of 4 lbs AND a dimensional limit. Posters wider than 28 inches (or 71 cm) can
NOT be shipped via First Class.
Also, the maximum number of posters that can ship via First Class in a tube is eight (8), 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 8 posters via First Class is approximately $50, depending on
where you live).
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
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.
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING (plus $3 for packaging
