About the condition
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!
An important message to all of our buyers about shipping methods (be sure to read this):
As we are sure you are well aware, the service from the Post Office within the U.S. has gone from bad to worse to downright awful over the past year, and that has now caused us to make UPS our default shipper for all domestic packages sent within the U.S (we explain this in full at the following link: Did you know... that the Post Office's record on delivery, damage, and payment on claims has gone SO far downhill that we are now making UPS our default shipper for all domestic packages sent within the U.S?.
We have analyzed
the performance of the Post Office and UPS (United Parcel Service) within the
U.S. and we find
that UPS does so much of a better job that we want all our customers to use it,
WHAT DOES ALL
THIS ADD UP TO? Effective October 27th, we will advise all our domestic customers
(those receiving orders WITHIN the U.S.) to
only use UPS, and NOT the Post Office, EXCEPT in the following
This is all part
of our desire to get our packages and tubes sent via the fastest, safest and
fully insured method, and after long experience, we feel certain that within the
United States, UPS offers
this the best, and that switching almost exclusively to them within the U.S. will result in
fewer damaged packages, faster deliveries, and full insurance payments o losses!
An important message to all of our buyers about how quickly we can send orders (BE SURE TO READ THIS):
In our three current sets of October auctions we will have had SIX THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED auctions end, and they include every size and type of poster and all sorts of related items, including LOTS of very expensive ones! There is NO WAY we can pack and ship everything in just a few days, and in fact it will surely take us a total of THREE weeks (give or take) to get every single item packed and quoted to the buyers. So PLEASE be understanding of this! We WILL be packing hundreds of orders each day after the auctions close, and it is the "luck of the draw" as to whether your order is packed early on or near the end. But you can "JUMP TO THE TOP OF THE STACK" by paying a $15 RUSH FEE, so please request this if you really want your quotes (and your package) sent to you much more quickly than other orders that did not pay the rush fee, but depending on what you won, it still might take a week or so to get your order sent. We know everyone wants their order sent ASAP, but we also know everyone wants them packed very carefully and safely, so thanks for realizing this.
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers must pay the actual cost of shipping their order plus $4 per tube or box, 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.
Our Pay and Hold Program (see below for how this works) allows you to have your purchases sent every SIXTEEN weeks, which means we will only send you packages around three times a year, but you MUST pay for your purchases every two weeks, even though they may not be shipped for 16 weeks. We urge all of our customers to join the Pay and Hold Program, because it really saves you a massive amount on shipping!
Missouri, California, Washington, and Illinois 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
Do you need "signature required"?
You CAN usually combine shipment!
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 sixteen 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).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING (plus $4 per tube or box for packaging 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 $4 per tube or box, for both the best packaging materials you have ever seen and a separate printed invoice mailed to you. All non-U.S. buyers must have their packages fully insured, UNLESS they expressly state they accept fully responsibility if their order is lost or damaged.

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.
