June 2013 Major Auction

     Our just concluded June 2013 Major Auction was a major success with $426,834 in total sales! We have auctioned MORE movie posters for MORE money than any other auction in the world, and we have done it for far longer!

While we are justifiably proud of our top results (some of which are pictured in the large image below), we are also proud of just about ALL the results of the 1,424 items in this auction, and we invite you to look over EVERY one of those results in gallery format at the below four links. We know full well that quite a few of the posters sold for far more than they would have at any other auction house, both because we reach just about every poster collector there is, and because collectors like buying from us better, because there are no unpleasant "surprises" in buying from us, and we give complete customer satisfaction, before, during, and after every sale, whether that customer spends $10 or $10,000!

This makes four major auctions in a row where we have had truly sensational results, all the more remarkable given the lackluster results at our competitors, and on eBay, where there has been a near-complete implosion of movie poster sales. We will have our next major auction in the beginning of September, and those of you thinking of consigning to it need to know that the deadline for consigning will be Friday, August 2nd. We want to be certain that consignors have PLENTY of notice, because right before every deadline we have, there are always some people who "cut it too close" and want to send us items, but because we were past our deadline, we could not include their items, and we really HATE when that happens! To avoid this problem, you want to start thinking about sending us your items NOW, even if it is solely to start "getting them together".

Why should those of you who have quality posters you have thought about selling consider consigning some or all of them to this next auction? Because there are lots and lots of good new buyers these days (at least here at!), and it really makes sense to be selling your quality items at the auction house where there are lots of buyers and they are paying good prices (as can be seen by exploring the above four galleries and seeing how many great prices we achieved)!

We know that all of those same bidders will be participating in our September 2013 Major Auction (and of course, we will have even more new bidders by that time!), and it can be YOU getting those strong results in this upcoming major auction, but remember that we want the type of items you DON'T see in our regular auctions, and best of all are those items that you don't see very often at all in any auction! What we DON'T want you to submit are items that ARE seen often in our regular sales, because rather than the prices of those items being "lifted" by being with great items, it often tends to work the other way, and those items sometimes go for less, probably because people have so many other more rare or more desirable items to spend their money on.

We think the results of our June 2013 Major Auction back this up. There WERE a couple of hundred items out of the 1,424 that sold for $30 or less. Certainly some of these items may have been "bargains" that deserved to sell for more, but it is also likely that quite a few of them should never have been in the major auction to begin with, and many or most of them would likely have sold for higher prices in our regular auctions. So it is to both of our benefits for you to try hard to only submit items for the September 2013 Major Auction which truly make sense for that auction (we are not so much price oriented as we are "rarity" and "desirability" oriented for this auction, but we would like to try to have only items with a realistic retail of $50 or more).

We really need to receive all material for this auction by Friday, August 2nd, which SEEMS like a long way off, but time really can get away from you, and if you send your items now, you have a much greater chance of having them included, because we always take the first example of each item we are sent. Be sure to e-mail Phillip at to let us know what you plan to send, and we will quickly let you know if they are right for this special auction.
