Major Auctions

It is too late to consign to our September Major Auction (which starts August 27th), but we are now accepting consignments for our December Major Auction

Here are previews of items included in our September Major Auction (click on any to see larger images, but ignore the requests to consign, because it is now too late!):

But even though it is now too late to consign to this September Major Auction, our next major auctions will be our 18th Annual Halloween Auction at the end of October (see separate section below), and we will wrap up 2017 with our December Major Auction in early December, and we have already received a surprising number of quality consignments for both these auctions, and since we take the first example of each item we are consigned, YOU should now be thinking of consigning to them, to make it FAR more likely YOUR items will be the ones we include! Go to our Consign Page to learn all about consigning. We charge lower commissions at EVERY price level than ANY other major auction house, and we get higher overall results (when you compare like items).

Are you not familiar with our Major Auctions? Read on:

Our June Major Auction auction ended with $388,075 in total sales, far exceeding our expectations, led by the $27,001 paid for the Scarlet Empress one-sheet!  But unlike every other auction, which makes it hard to see anything other than the top results, we at show you EVERY single result, in the same easy to view galleries you bid from (and unlike every other auction, we show you the high bidders' IDs, and a complete bid history on every single item).

Remember that while we always auction all backed posters we are consigned only in our major auctions, we also always include quite a few unbacked items as well. And all of the above applies equally to our 18th Annual Halloween Auction, which, as always, will solely contain horror/sci-fi/fantasy items! By consigning quality items to it NOW, rather than waiting until it is closer, you GREATLY increase the chances YOUR items will be included, rather than other examples of the same items we are consigned from others (and this happens with dozens of items every auction). And you increase the chances we will use your items in our pre-auction publicity, so why not consign today? And since our September Major Auction is now closed, you should also start thinking about consigning to our December Major Auction, for the same reasons.

Why do so many collectors consign to us rather than other auctions? Partly it is because we charge MUCH lower selling commissions (at every price level), part is because we get higher results overall (when you compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges, even accepting other auctions "reported" auction results as real), and part is because we are known to be 100% honest and trustworthy (and we have NEVER been involved in a lawsuit of any kind, and simple research on the Internet, or talking to others, will quickly show just how many such "problems" other auctions have). We have had 1,988 consignors, and we get lots more consignors every major auction (many of whom tell us how much happier they are dealing with us than with other auctions).

And as far as auction results go, one has to take the reported "results" from other auctions with a BIG "grain of salt", when so many of the items that seemed to do well return to their auctions over and over, most often progressively "selling" for less and less. In our auctions, the items REALLY sell, at the listed prices, and in the tiny number of cases where they don't, we cancel the sale and remove it from our database (so every result there is 100% guaranteed to be real).

And you don't have to take our word for any of the above! Ask around the hobby, and you will soon find out why so many more collectors and dealers consign to us, rather than any other auction. In December 2016, when one of the most major and respected French dealers, Dominique Besson, was looking to sell his wonderful collection of U.S. one-sheets, he consigned it to us, rather than any other auction (and rather than selling or auctioning it himself). And the same is true of many of the other most respected dealers and collectors the world over.

Now is the time to consign to our 18th Annual Halloween Auction!

It is now time to consign to our 18th Annual Halloween Auction (which includes this incredible first release country-of-origin 1927 German Metropolis lobby card)!

Go to our Consign Page to learn all about consigning. We charge lower commissions at EVERY price level than ANY other major auction house, and we get higher overall results (when you compare like items). Plus we have been doing this for 27 years, and have far and away the best reputation of any movie poster auction! Why not consign today, and you could be seeing some of your consignments in our future ads!

Did You Know... how do we decide what UNBACKED items go in our September Major Auction, and which go in regular ones?

We only auction linenbacked and paperbacked items in our major auctions. But we also add in unbacked items that are very desirable and also rarely auctioned (like the unbacked ones seen here, which will be in our September Major Auction). We want what our consignors want which is for their items to be in the auction that will yield them the most money!

But quite often, consignors see the words "major auction" and think, "I will do much better if my unbacked items are THERE, rather than in the regular auctions", and so they ask me to put them in the major auction, on the face of it, that sounds logical. But in actual practice, including any unbacked items other than real rarities that are really desirable often has exactly the opposite effect!

Why? Because in the major auction, these kinds of items would be among the least expensive items there, but in the regular auctions, they will be either among the best or somewhere in the middle, and they would stand out far more (a "big fish in a little pond"), and I have found over and over that items do better when they are more interesting than what they are being auctioned with.

It is only natural to realize that I want to get my consignors as much as possible for their items (without doing anything deceptive or dishonest), because we get more money as the items auction for more and because we want those consignors to send us lots more items in the future!

But this does not mean that we have an arbitrary "minimum value" for unbacked major auction consignments. We are open to including any item that fits the description of "very rare", "very desirable" and in "very nice condition", even if it might not sell for that much (and even if your items only have two of those factors we will consider them).

So if you have any unbacked items you think MIGHT fit in our major auctions, send us an email and tell us what they are, and we will give you our thoughts as to which auctions will get you the most money. Or you could do as so many of our 2,000+ consignors do and leave it to us to decide where to place the items (both because we want what you want, to get the most money, and because we have 27 years experience, auctioning literally millions of movie paper items for over $70 million dollars!).
