Do you want to be able to always find out honest movie paper values in a million record database or quickly see an insane number of images in the same fully searchable database? If you somehow don't know about (and regularly visit) our Auction History Database at then you need to go one time, because you will quickly join the tens of thousands of others who go there ALL the time! It is 100% free, and you don't have to register to see the images or sales results, and it is completely "sort-able" and "search-able" in every way!

We have just added our ONE MILLIONTH record! This doesn't mean one million auctions, because the database contains all the images from our 43 books, the Hershenson/Allen Archive, plus the fixed priced items from our website and our 1990s sales lists, but it does contain around 921,000 actual auction results. Unlike other databases, EVERY single result is an actual result, where the consignor of that poster was paid for it, in cash. No sales that "fell through", were canceled, prices that were "re-negotiated", etc, etc, (we collect on 99% of our auctions, and on the few where we don't, those results are dropped from the database and the item is re-auctioned and entered after the new sale is paid for).

And because we have auctioned so many items (many times more than ANY other movie paper auction, by a VERY wide margin), you can do what so many dealers and potential buyers do, which is to use it to get a good sense of what you might buy or sell each poster for. On lots and lots of specific posters we have auctioned them ten or twenty or more times, so you can see the "range" that item has sold for over a LOT of sales. And on those titles where we have only sold them one or two times (or none at all, on an ever-shrinking number of items) then you can know for sure that is a very rare item, and incorporate that info into your pricing decision. None of these prices are "guessed at", as they are in any "price guide"! They are actual prices paid, and the result of two bidders bidding against each other, not one bidder against a "reserve".

"Only" 915,000+ of the the one million records have images of the items. Why? Because the vast majority of the missing images are from auctions from 1999 to 2003. At that time we did not have a perfect method of assigning specific names to images, so while we DO have those images, it can be difficult to assign the right image to the right auction. On some of them we CAN determine which belongs to which auction, and on others we can only make a very educated guess, so we are in the process of adding those images back in, and on the ones where we are not 100% sure the images are correct, we add "this may be a stock image" to that image.

As you might imagine, this is a massive project, but we began it some months ago, when we had around 120,000 "missing" images, and we have added back in around 35,000 of them, and we have 85,000 to go, and we will continue to work at it (in our "spare" time) until finally EVERY one of the million records has its image attached! Remember that these are solely images from before 2004. Every record from that point on has the image of the actual item that was auctioned in that auction (because we NEVER use "stock" images on our auctions)!

At some point in the future we may add a "Pay" section to this massive database, but until that time, this Auction History Database at is completely free, so be sure to bookmark it and visit whenever you want to see an image (or know an item's value), but be aware that it can be very addicting, and you may find yourself spending lots of time there!
