Incredible Free Bonus Offer (a different set for EACH of the next 3 auctions!)
(for U.S. customers; non-U.S. customers please read special notes below regarding shipping and bonus offers)
Crazy Bruce Hershenson has really flipped his lid! He says, "For this fourth regular auction on our website, I am offering every buyer IN THIS AUCTION an incredible set of three of my best $20 full-color movie poster books (Set #4: 60 Great Sci-Fi Movie Posters, Texas at the Movies, and Vintage Hollywood Posters VI; we will offer a different set of three each week for the next three auctions). You can learn more about each book by clicking on the book names above. Go HERE to learn more about the other sets I will be offering to all buyers in our non-eBay auctions.  We offer every one of our buyers this week one copy each of 60 Great Sci-Fi Movie Posters, Texas at the Movies, and Vintage Hollywood Posters VI as a bonus, even if you just buy one $1 item!  If you don't already own these great books (or maybe even if you do!), then you should find any one of our hundreds of items to buy, just to get the bonus books!  You may get all three books AND an item for as little as $1 for both plus shipping (if you are the only bidder)!


Special Notes About This Thursday's Items
About the Condition

     Note that we give a detailed overall condition grade to every item we sell ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", "good", and "fair", with only a few graded "poor") along with more details about the condition described in words (but pretty much only if they are defects that CAN'T be seen in our super-sized images, or if the item is especially valuable).  We felt this would help bidders identify items they want to bid on more easily.  Of course, we still strongly recommend that you look at our super-sized image to see the extent of the defects that we describe and to examine the poster for minor defects that we did NOT describe.

    If a poster is in less than very good condition, should you not bid on it? Of course not, as long as you are accepting of the defects the poster has! The item that is graded "very good", but has as many minor defects as is allowed under the "very good" definition is only in SLIGHTLY better condition than the best of the "good to very good" items. So please take the time to look at the larger images of items that interest you, and see if the defects are the sort that you can "live with", or are willing to restore. Some of these items are EXTREMELY rare, and it may be years before you see them offered again!

    Note that we have a significant percentage of "lesser" items (ones in less than very good condition, but remember this is OUR "very good", which is very harsh!) this week (50% of the total posters).  This is because most of these posters were actually used in a theater, and then were stored in boxes WITHOUT any protection for many years.  The combination of being used in theaters and being carelessly stored gave a fair number of the posters a bunch of minor defects, and because we pride ourselves on being very strict graders, we downgraded all of those posters to grades of less than very good.  But please take the time to look at the super-sized images of any "lesser" items that interest you, as you may well find that the defects are "not that bad", and that you can accept them (or are willing to have them restored).


Payment Options
We accept Paypal
(our PayPal e-mail is "mail@emovieposter.com"), any major credit card (you may pay us directly over the phone during regular our business hours; Monday to Friday, 9 AM CST to 5 PM CST except between 12 and 1 when we take lunch), check, money order, or Western Union (unlike SOME auction sites, we are not prejudiced against Western Union!). But please don't send cash (as we can't be responsible for lost cash)!


U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $11 shipping, unless your total is under $100 (see below).
U.S. orders totaling $100 and over pay $11 for shipping
U.S. orders totaling less than $100 pay $9 for shipping

Why do we charge $9 to $11?
     We spend $11 (or more) on almost all U.S. orders, because we use such good, heavy packaging (at least twice as strong as that used by most sellers), even on low priced orders (because we believe a low priced item still deserves the best handling)!  But we know that people who spend relatively small amounts of money do not like to pay $11 for shipping, so we discount shipping on smaller orders by $2 as a favor to those customers.

You CAN usually combine shipment!
    Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single week, and still pay only a single shipping charge for all of the items, but we also allow you to wait until next week's auctions end so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions (if possible), and since we do two sets of auctions every week, that means there is a chance you could combine items from up to four of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single $11 (or $9) shipping charge (assuming those items fit into the same type of package). We KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do, but we know that our packaging is the best there is, and our orders virtually never arrive damaged (and on the very rare times that they do, all our U.S. packages are fully insured, and FULL INSURANCE IS INCLUDED IN THE $11 [or $9] U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).



Non-U.S. Shipping Details
Non-U.S. buyers must pay the actual cost of shipping their order (you can choose whatever method you prefer, but know that the U.S. Post Office has eliminated Surface Mail, so we can only send via Express or Airmail), plus $2 for the best packaging materials you have ever seen.  All non-U.S. buyers must tell us if they want the package sent insured or uninsured at the time they pay for their order.

     IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the major raise in U.S. postage rates to other countries, just about any package to most non-U.S. countries that weighs one pound or more will cost approximately $26 for Uninsured Airmail shipping (and this includes virtually all of our packages as we use 2 pieces of extra heavy duty cardboard for packaging, and then put that into a sturdy Calumet container or box).  So please bear this shipping cost in mind BEFORE your place a bid (if you live outside the U.S.).
    Some sellers are sending by Ground UPS to Canada, but that incurs large "brokerage fees", so we do not recommend it.  Note that there are also some sellers sending non-U.S. packages via a "Letter" rate, but of course this is not legal, and we can not do this.  We have outlined the possibilities for sending non-U.S. packages above, so please read that carefully, BEFORE placing a bid!

DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING (the actual cost of shipping plus $2 outside the U.S.)!

IMPORTANT! NOTE THAT WE GIVING A BONUS SET OF OUR 3 OF OUR IN-PRINT FULL-COLOR MOVIE POSTER BOOKS TO ALL OF OUR BUYERS THIS WEEK, as a way to both encourage bidders to participate in our first regular non-eBay auction! However please note that for non-U.S. buyers, we can only include the three bonus books with non-U.S. orders if the buyer is willing to pay the roughly $20 or more added shipping charge (because the books will add around 3 pounds to the weight of the package!).


You Can Add More to Your Order
In addition to our current auctions, we offer many other non-auction items. Please note that the items in this week's auction will mostly be sent rolled in tubes, so you can add any item that can easily be rolled for no additional shipping costs. We have noted in each paragraph below whether the items can be shipped rolled or not.

We now have the BRAND-NEW 2008 Movie Poster Sales Results! (can be shipped rolled or flat)
     This new edition includes 25,000 verified sales results from our 2007 sales and contains NO duplication to our previous editions!  WE ARE OFFERING THE BRAND NEW 2008 EDITION FOR THE COVER PRICE OF $10, OR YOU CAN ORDER IT, PLUS THE PREVIOUS FOUR EDITIONS FOR A TOTAL OF $15, A GREAT SAVINGS OF $35 OFF OF THE COMBINED COVER PRICES!  Go to our "Other Publications" books page at http://www.emovieposter.com/books/books.php?section=nonBruce to learn more and to order!

Illustration Magazines (can be shipped flat only)
    Know that we also sell several other movie poster-related publications, so now is a good time to pick up items you may have missed! We have copies of a great full-color magazine entirely devoted to the great legendary poster artist, Bob Peak! This magazine (called Illustration Magazine #6) has tons of full-color images, all shot directly from Peak's originals, and has a great in-depth overview of Peak's entire career, written by his son! It sells for $9 and it is almost completely sold out, but if you want a copy, just enclose $9 with your order! We also have copies of Illustration Magazine #7, which has a long article on master horror/sci-fi illustrator Reynold Brown, with many full-color images shot directly from his originals, and that issue is also just $9.

Movie Collectors World (can be shipped rolled or flat)
(the latest is the June issue). This magazine has been published for over 30 years and is the "Bible" of the movie poster collecting hobby! The cover price is $3.00. If you want a copy of the June issue added to your order for $3.00 (with NO additional shipping), just let us know when you pay for your order and we will include it!

Fixed Price Posters
(most can be shipped rolled but not all can be sent flat; if an item has a "UF" or "TF" in the description, it can only be shipped rolled, but if it has a "FF" in the description, it can likely be sent rolled or flat; please check with us if you are unsure)
  Click HERE to view these Fixed Price posters on our website (many of them are one-sheets). If we can combine any of the Fixed Price items with your current purchases into a single package, then we won't charge you any added shipping!
