Special Notes About This
About the Rarity of 30x40 Movie Posters
Thirty by forty posters have been made since the 1930s, but few theaters ever ordered them, making them FAR more rare than one-sheets of the same titles. Why? Because they were printed on a much better paper stock than that of one-sheets, and the studios charged between five and ten times more for these posters, so only the biggest theaters ordered them. Many collectors do not realize these sizes exist, but there is a great argument for why thirty by forties should sell for more than corresponding one-sheets, which is that they are printed on a much better paper stock, don't have the annoying foldlines of regular folded one-sheets, and are a jillion times more rare! We have seen high grade thirty by forties continue to rise in price as more and more collectors become aware of them, and we expect this trend to continue. The collection of thirty by forties we are offering this week include many titles that are both rare AND desirable! Best of all, many are in really wonderful condition, and very few have any annoying tiny creases (referred to as "crinkle marks" in the hobby)!

About the Condition
We accept all major credit cards, either directly over the phone during regular our business hours which are Monday to Friday, 9 AM CST to 5 PM CST except between 12 and 1 when we take lunch, or you can e-mail us payment details, and there are still a few people who fax us!
If you like to pay via Paypal (our PayPal e-mail is "email@example.com"), that is fine, but know that PayPal has many glitches, and you should ABSOLUTELY e-mail us separately when you send us a PayPal payment!
You can send a check or money order (if you do, enclose your address and details about what you purchased) to:
P.O. Box 874
West Plains, MO 65775
If it is your
best payment option, you can pay by 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. buyers need to enclose $9 shipping (which includes full insurance)!
Why do we charge $9, when we used to charge $9 to $11 on eBay?
We spend $9 (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)!
We USED to charge $11 for shipping on U.S. orders over $100 when we sold on eBay, but now that we are auctioning on our own site we have lowered that to $9, which is both our way of thanking those who order a lot from us, and also our way of passing on our savings from not paying eBay commissions to our customers!
You CAN usually combine shipment!
(NOTE: This week's Thursday items must be sent rolled in tubes and can NOT be combined with the folded one-sheets we sold July 15th or with the German posters and Mexican & Spanish/U.S. lobbies that closed July 17th nor with the folded three-sheets, six-sheets, and Argentineans we are auctioning from 7/15 to 7/22, but could be combined with the rolled non-U.S. posters we will be selling 7/22 to 7/29)
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 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 $9 U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $9 U.S. SHIPPING!
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.
Add More to Your
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.
