The final deadline to consign to our 18th Annual Halloween Auction is 9/29, and we are already accepting consignments for our December Major Auction!

It is now time to consign to our 18th Annual Halloween Auction (which includes all of the items pictured below). We have already received many other excellent consignments, and there is no better place for you to sell your horror/sci-fi movie paper collectibles (and remember that we don't only accept linenbacked items for this auction, but if an item is not linenbacked, it needs to be desirable and not auctioned very often, or else you will likely do better with it in our regular auctions).

THE FINAL DEADLINE TO CONSIGN TO THE HALLOWEEN AUCTION IS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH (but you are far better off to consign sooner than later, because we always take the first of each item we receive, and besides, these deadlines have a way of creeping up on you, and you don't want to miss consigning to this auction, because it is going to be great)!

It is also not to early to consign to our December Major Auction that starts at the end of November, and we have already received a surprising number of quality consignments to it (we will post some early previews of items in it starting next week!).

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 consigning to our September Major Auction is of course 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. Go to our Consign Page to learn all about consigning to us.

Did You Know... that we never offer to buy items from our consignors?

Unlike almost all of our competitors, we do not EVER offer to buy items from those with items they are looking to sell, because that would put us in direct conflict with our consignment based business, and we would be on "the opposite side" from you, needing to buy your items for a low price. Instead, when you consign to us, we are "on the same side" (if your items sell for more, then you get more and we also get more).

This "refusal to purchase" has cost us some consignments, and sometimes people have offered us items for a fraction of their true value, but when that happens we explain they will get much more by consigning, and we convince them to do so, and afterwards they are always quite thankful!

Many other auctions play all sorts of games with their own consignors. Sometimes they try to buy the items outright from them for pennies on the dollar, if they feel the consignors are uninformed. Sometimes they will get the consignor to consign the items to their low profile auctions where they will buy the items themselves and then re-auction them (as their own consignments) in their higher profile auctions. Since they have their own consignments being auctioned alongside those from consignors, they often give their own items higher estimates and condition grades than they give the items consigned by other consignors!

WE NEVER PLAY ANY OF THESE GAMES. If you are interested in consigning your item(s) to our weekly auctions, the link below gives you full details about consigning. If you are solely interested in selling your items as a group, you should search the Internet to find dealers that might be interested (you will almost surely receive less money selling them outright than you would consigning, but a few people insist on selling rather than consigning, even when it costs them money). Quite often, the dealer who buys your items will turn around and consign some or all of them to us!

Before you send any items to us, be sure to thoroughly read our "Consign Page" at If our consignment terms are agreeable (and note that we have no "fine print" or hidden fees or "buyers premiums", then please print out the "Consignor Reference Sheet" (here:, fill it out, and include it inside your package. This short form makes processing of your consignments much faster for us. This insures that we have all the information we need.

What you can expect once we receive your consignments:
1) We will notify you via e-mail when your consignments arrive
2) We will begin preparing them for auction soon thereafter (they will likely be auctioned when we next sell that size, UNLESS it is in one of the categories we have lots and lots already consigned, or unless we already have one or more examples of the exact same item already consigned to us, or unless you send tightly rolled posters that need quite a while, possibly months, to "flatten" enough to where where can work with them)
3) We will notify you via e-mail when items of yours are put up for auction
4) One week later, we will notify you via e-mail of the results of your items
5) We will pay you by check sent by U.S. mail (unless you have made other arrangements, such as PayPal or wire transfer) at the end of the month following the month in which items are sold (we will include a detailed list of every single item, what it sold for, when it sold, and what our commission was)

Consignments and the consignor reference sheet can be sent securely wrapped to (if by Post Office):
Bruce Hershenson
Attention: Consignments
P.O. Box 874
West Plains, MO 65775

Our address for UPS and FedEx only is:
Bruce Hershenson
Attention: Consignments

West Plains, MO 65775

We get ten to twenty packages every DAY of new consignments (they contain an average of around 4,000 items every WEEK!) and just about the only time we "lose" a consignor is when they have nothing left to sell (and we regularly gain new consignors who had poor dealings with other auction houses or who were tired of eBay's constantly rising fees and constantly falling prices).

If YOU have been considering joining our 2,000+ current consignors, know that NOW is an excellent time to do so, because we have refined our system to where we can now auction even huge collections in a relatively short time!

In 2010 we commissioned ace cartoonist Erik Andresen to create the below comic strip for us on the subject of consigning vs. selling outright (and it is as accurate today as it was 7 years ago). Click on the image to see it in a much larger (and more readable) size.

It's a number's game!
