About These Sunday Items
WE GUARANTEE THAT EVERY STILL IN THIS AUCTION IS ORIGINAL (just like the ones we sold in
our earlier weeks of still auctions)! Why? Because these stills are from several remarkable collections, which were purchased by VERY knowledgeable collectors, who could tell original stills from repros, reissues, or restrikes and it only contains original stills, and YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT! We know you will agree these are surely original stills, but if you have the slightest doubt, you can return ANY still within one week for a no questions asked refund!
We have sold many tens of thousands of stills, and we KNOW these to be genuine, and we also
know this to be a remarkable collection of hand-picked stills!
We give a detailed overall condition grade ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", and only a few which are less than "good to very good") along with more details about the condition described in words (where we thought additional details were needed, because the defects were hard to see). We felt this would help bidders identify items they want to bid on more easily. Of course, we could not describe every single defect, so 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
still for minor defects that we did NOT describe.
About surface scuffs and creasing
As anyone who looks at old photos knows, twenty to eighty year old photos are almost certain to pick up faint scuffs and creases in the surface emulsion of the photo. Vintage stills are the same way. But when these creases and scuffs are light, you can't see them when you look directly at the still from straight on, but you CAN see them when you tilt the still to the light. We don't consider this a major defect, because we don't know anyone who displays their stills tilted to the light. So if a still has minor scuffs and creases that are not very visible when it is viewed straight on, we still grade it as "very good or very good to fine" (or a higher grade). The only exception to this is if there are scuffs and creases throughout the entire still. Then we grade it as "lesser" (or a lower grade), even if the scuffs and creases are not visible when looked at straight on. We DO feel most collectors can accept minor surface scuffs and creases that can hardly be seen from straight on and are relatively minor. If you disagree, you probably should think long and hard before bidding on the stills that we grade as "lesser", or "very good or very good to fine" (but you still likely will be happy with the stills we grade as "fine or better", because we won't give a still those grades if there are scuffs in the surface emulsion that are at all visible when the still is viewed head-on).
MANY OTHER SELLERS WOULD ASK $4.99, $6.99, $9.99, OR MORE EACH FOR REPRODUCTIONS OF STILLS THE SAME OR SIMILAR TO THESE, AND MOST
OTHER SELLERS START SIMILAR ORIGINAL VINTAGE STILLS AT $14.99 OR MORE EACH
but you may be able to buy one or more stills from us this week for as low
as $1 PER STILL (if you are the only bidder, but of course, there may well be other bidders; IN OUR AUCTIONS, THE FINAL PRICES ARE ALWAYS SET BY TWO REAL BIDDERS, NOT BY YOU BIDDING AGAINST AN ARTIFICIAL RESERVE OR "STARTING PRICE", which may well be "too high"). And these are vintage stills, which have collectible value, as opposed to reproduction stills, which have NO collectible value.
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $8 shipping (which includes full insurance), no matter how many
items you purchase from this set of auctions! NOTE: Our $8 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
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 (unless your package has a dollar value over $300, in which case we will always send it
with signature required, unless you specifically tell us not to, and 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 small flat packages
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 (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):
Sunday February 11th transparencies, negatives, 35mm
Sunday February 18th magazines, books, and more
Tuesday February 20th WCs, French, Italian, and more
Thursday February 22nd non-U.S. stills, lobbies, and posters
Tuesday February 27th single lobby cards
Sunday March 4th folded one-sheets
Tuesday March 6th "flat" signed items only
Thursday March 8th complete and incomplete lobby card sets
*they must be sent separately from these auctions for an additional shipping charge:
Thursday February 8th rolled one-sheets and large rolled items
Tuesday February 13th rolled non-U.S. posters
Thursday February 15th rolled one-sheets
Sunday February 25th bulk lots (NOTE: Some CAN be combined, and if safe to do so, we will automatically combine them)
Thursday March 1st rolled special posters and one-sheets
Tuesday March 6th "rolled" signed items only
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;
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 $8 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), 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.
NOTE: The below estimates are only good if you solely purchase still lots. If you also purchase other types of items, you will be charged
the actual cost of shipping which will be higher, because most other items measure larger than the stills (and usually they weigh more).
For Canada/Mexico, we estimate the "actual cost of shipping" to be approximately
$18/$23 for First Class or $32 to $37 for Priority Mail for up to 40 stills.
For everywhere else in the world, we estimate the "actual cost of shipping" to be approximately $25 for First Class or $44 to $47 for
Priority Mail for up to 40 stills.
How many stills can ship in a single First Class package?
We estimate that up to 140 stills will fit in a single First Class package (but that is at the 4 pound limit which will be around $50 for the
package, NOT the estimates shown above). We estimate up to 40 stills can ship for the estimates shown above.
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
