Our August Major Auction contains over 1,200 items from all of the world and from every decade, and many different sizes and is being run in three parts:

  • Part I (ends Sunday, August 12th): 494 linenbacked posters of all types

  • Part II (ends Tuesday, August 14th): 225 oversized linen & non-linen posters, items that ship in large flat packages, campaign books, exhibitor magazines, and more
  • Part III (ends Thursday, August 16th): 212 items including an incredible lobby card collection, PLUS folded one-sheets and other items that ship in standard flat packages
  • Part IV (begins Sunday, August 12th): all "rolled" posters (that can be sent in regular tubes), PLUS paperbacked posters and a great collection of 22x28 "personality" posters (most of these should be sent in flat packages)

What distinguishes OUR major auctions from other major auctions? Only the lack of any reserves or buyers premiums, honest condition grading, and unenhanced super-sized images! You will find an amazing "supermarket" selection of great posters from all years, genres, and countries!

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

IN THIS SET OF AUCTIONS ONLY, all buyers must pay the actual cost of sending your order, plus $3 for the packaging materials. After winning, you need to pay and/or request a shipping quote through our Checkout system. Learn the exact details of flat rate shipping

Why don't we have a "flat rate" for some U.S. orders in this set of auctions, like we do in sets of auctions where we auction lobby cards or folded one-sheets? Because even though all of the items can be sent in boxes, almost all are extremely valuable, and will require extra packing (and sometimes double boxing), and therefore shipping will vary greatly depending on how many items you get, what the weight of the items are, and where you live. Generally it will cost at least $20 to send almost any of these items anywhere in the U.S. by either U.S. mail or UPS, fully insured (all U.S. orders MUST be fully insured), but if you get very expensive items, it may be a fair amount more, due to the greater packaging and the cost of insurance.

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"?
 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 $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. 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 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; Learn More 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 (NOTE: If any of these items carry a higher or actual cost of shipping, then you will pay that higher amount):

Thursday July 12th books, sheet music, programs & presskits
Sunday July 15th groups of two or more stills
Tuesday July 17th large French & Italian posters, Mexican lobby cards, record albums, and more
Thursday July 19th complete and incomplete lobby card sets
Tuesday July 24th three-sheets, six-sheets, and more
Thursday July 26th folded non-U.S. posters and lobbies
Sunday July 29th single lobby cards
Sunday August 7th single lobby cards
Tuesday August 14th "oversized flat" posters in Part II of August Major Auction

*they must be sent separately from these auctions for an additional shipping charge:

Tuesday July 10th rolled non-U.S. posters
Sunday July 22nd rolled one-sheets
Tuesday July 31st rolled non-U.S. posters
Thursday August 2nd inserts and half-sheets
Sunday August 5th bulk lots (NOTE: Some CAN be safely combined, and we will automatically combine if safe to do.)
Thursday August 9th special posters, 30x40s, and one-sheets
Sunday August 12th linenbacked posters in Part I of August Major Auction
Tuesday August 14th linenbacked posters in Part II of August Major Auction
Tuesday August 14th "oversized rolled" posters in Part II of August Major Auction

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 possible; see Learn More 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 COST OF U.S. SHIPPING PLUS $3 FOR PACKAGING MATERIALS (and on a week like this, when we use very large packages, the $3 usually does not come close to covering the cost of those materials).

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!

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.

(Note: Insured quotes are based on a $200 value; you pay $1.60 more for each additional $100 of insurance)

Type of Shipping Canada/Mexico Australian/Asia/Japan Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Priority Mail Int'l - Uninsured $43.19 $51.93 $53.11
Priority Mail Express Int'l - Uninsured $58.05 $70.93 $66.41
First Class* (under 4 lbs ONLY) $22.71 $24.61 $24.38
*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!
