Details About These Items

Why are we auctioning rolled one-sheets AND "special" posters AND rolled non-U.S. posters together?
     In our bi-weekly auctions, we combine all three of these types of posters into a single auction. We find that many of the same people buy each of these types of posters, and by offering them in the same set of auctions, they can have a wider variety of items to choose from!

HERE IS A CHART OF THE ITEMS IN THIS AUCTION (separated by the three types included):
(to better help you find the sizes and types that interest you)

About the posters in this auction which were once folded
     Note that some of the posters in this auction were NEVER folded, and some were folded.  However, all of the posters in this auction were stored unfolded, which has diminished how noticeable the fold lines are.  UNLESS WE ARE TOLD OTHERWISE BY THE NEW OWNER, WE INTEND TO SEND ALL OF THESE POSTERS ROLLED IN TUBES.  However, if a person solely purchases one of the previously folded posters, we WILL re-fold it and send it in a flat package if the person specifically requests it (this may lower the shipping, but sometimes not, because some of the posters can not be folded to where they fit in our standard-sized flat packages and have to be sent in one of our oversized packages if they are folded).  Of course, if you purchase both posters that were once folded and posters that were never folded, then it will make far more sense to send them all together in a single tube.

About "special" posters
     We regularly receive posters from hundreds of consignors, and the vast majority of them are standard movie poster sizes. But we also receive a number of posters which are NOT standard movie poster sizes, or posters that are not movie posters. These cover a HUGE range of years, sizes, and subjects and some are likely extremely rare, and we guarantee you that a lot of them will have images that are new to you! Included are a number of commercial posters (posters sold directly to the public, BUT WE CLEARLY IDENTIFY ALL COMMERCIAL POSTERS AS SUCH!), and also reproductions, but again WE CLEARLY IDENTIFY ALL REPRODUCTION POSTERS AS SUCH.
     NOTE THAT IT CAN BE VERY DIFFICULT WITH POSTERS LIKE THESE TO DETERMINE IF THEY WERE ORIGINALLY SOLD COMMERCIALLY. It is possible we have not identified some posters as commercial posters that actually WERE commercial posters. If you see any that you feel are misidentified, please contact us so that we can make the correction (please provide how you know the information you are giving us!). We try to be 100% accurate, and we welcome all corrections.

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 item for minor defects that we did NOT describe.
   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 must pay the actual cost of shipping their order plus $3, for both the best packaging materials you have ever seen (you can choose either the U.S. Post Office or UPS (since you are paying it, you can choose the method you prefer). All U.S. orders will be sent fully insured.

NOTE: In the past, we offered a "flat rate" shipping price on some of our auctions. We no longer have this, for two reasons. One is that the shipping companies have drastically raised their rates many times in the past few years, so we were losing lots of money with our flat rate. The other more important reason is that our Pay and Hold Program (see below for how this works) allows you to have your purchases sent every TWELVE weeks, which means we will only send you packages four times a year, and almost all of those packages were already being charged the actual cost anyway. We urge all of our customers to join the Pay and Hold Program, because it really saves you a massive amount on shipping!

Missouri, Arizona, California, Washington, Illinois, North Carolina, and Ohio customers: If your order is sent within these states, we MUST collect sales tax, and we will do so automatically (unless you have a Reseller Certificate from your state in which case you need to reply to this email with a copy of that Certificate, so you can be exempted from the sales tax).

Have you heard about our Pay and Hold Program?
This lets U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 12 consecutive weeks (a total of 18 auctions and around 24,000+ items!), and we then send all your purchases at once saving you LOTS of money! Click HERE to learn more about becoming one of the hundreds of our U.S. buyers who are already part of this program.

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: We will combine bulk lots with other purchases when possible, but because many bulk lots contain lots of items, it is not always possible to combine them; Learn More About Combining).

*they can be combined with these auctions:

Tuesday June 9th the signed items that ship rolled in tubes
Sunday June 14th rolled one-sheets, non-U.S., and special posters
Tuesday June 23rd inserts, half-sheets, small non-U.S. posters (the items that ship rolled)
Sunday June 28th bulk lots that ship rolled
Tuesday July 7th linenbacked posters in Part I of our July Major Auction
Thursday July 9th linenbacked posters in Part II of our July Major Auction
Sunday July 12th the linenbacked and rolled items that ship in tubes in Part III of our July Major Auction
Tuesday July 21st rolled one-sheets, non-U.S., and special posters

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

Tuesday June 9th the signed items that ship in flat packages
Thursday June 11th sets of lobby cards and sets of stills
Tuesday June 23rd Danish programs and Spanish heralds
Thursday June 25th single lobby cards and single stills
Sunday June 28th bulk lots that ship flat
Sunday July 12th lobby cards and anything that ships in flat packages in Part III of our July Major Auction
Thursday July 23rd window cards, Italian, French, and similar
Sunday July 26th folded one-sheets
Tuesday August 4th programs, program books, and magazines
Thursday August 6th pressbooks, comic books, sheet music and much more

Note that (if you join our Pay and Hold Program) we allow you to wait to have your purchases shipped until a total of twelve auctions have ended 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 all those items, 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 two types of items can be combined, most of our regular buyers end up with at least two packages after twelve 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 combined 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).


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 all buyers pay for their purchases from 12 consecutive weeks (a total of 18 auctions and around 24,000+ 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.
Insurance will increase the cost of shipping by approximately $1.60 for each $100 of insurance.

Type of Shipping Canada/Mexico Australian/Asia/Japan Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Priority Mail Int'l - Uninsured


$55.01 $57.15
Priority Mail Express Int'l - Uninsured $61.66 $75.91 $70.45

First Class* (under 4 lbs ONLY)

$33.16 $35.06 $35.78
*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 United States?
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 (but bear in mind that, depending on the state, we might have to then charge U.S. sales tax)! 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.
