There is less than a week left in which to consign to our September Major Auction!

YOU HAVE A LITTLE UNDER A WEEK TO GET YOUR SEPTEMBER MAJOR AUCTION CONSIGNMENTS ON THEIR WAY TO US (your consignments sent no later than July 28th, for this auction which runs from 8/27 to 9/7)

If you have any high quality items you have considered selling, why not consign them to us? Not only get you the highest prices overall (when you compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges) but we also charge the lowest commissions of ANY major auction (no ifs, ands, buts, or buyers premiums). Contact us with what you have today!

Have you not heard of this auction? 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).

Our next major auction after this September Major Auction, will be our 18th Annual Halloween Auction at the end of October, and we will wrap up 2017 with our December Major Auction in early December!

YOU ARE NEARING THE FINAL DEADLINE TO CONSIGN TO OUR SEPTEMBER MAJOR AUCTION! Consigning now gives you two advantages. One is that if we are consigned two examples of an item (which often happens) we run the one we receive first. The other is that we use early consignments in our early pre-Major Auction advertising, so for both these reasons it pays to consign NOW, rather than wait until near the July 28th deadline (and every time, there are some people who wait too long and end up missing the auction altogether)!

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?

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.

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!).
